'If the Nazis had Won the War' Books?


Are there any good books predicting what would have happened to the world if the Nazis had won WW2?

Why would anyone write a book on that?

Which brings me to the obvious question: why do people indulge in speculation? To the extent that they would write a book on it.

WWII and Germany and Hitler for some reason draws so much attention to all kinds of people,even MJ had a fascination for them.

To make money,I would say so.
WW2 books that are related to the nazis do get sold plenty.
Authors are not Nazis nor are the people that buy them,History plays in people lives lot and were there is a quick buck to be made,people don't really care bout the victims.

Dozens and dozens. I've read at least six myself. If I recall correctly the one's that I've read all seem to focus on a successful invasion of Britan and omit a Russian involvement.

Here is a good place to start:

An Axis victory in World War II is a common concept in alternate history. World War II alternate histories are one of the two most popular point of divergences in the English language.[1][2][3][4] Such writings express the fear of what the world would be like had the Axis powers of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and Imperial Japan had won World War II and tells the reader to take the necessary steps to avoid anything similar from being victorious.[3]
