really thought, there are a whole line of alternate history books and stories
most tend to focus on different outcomes for WW2 (German's create super weapons, Russia takes over all of Europe, the US attacks Russia, aliens arrive forcing everyone to work together etc.)
They are fun sometimes but they take such massive leaps from reality that they tend to be closer to sci-fi (with every one advancing super fast to the point that they have steam punk and diesel engine style future tech) or a parody of different cultures that the writer dislikes than actual historical possibilities.
