A nuclear-devastated Europe can be rebuilt, though. Indeed, I suspect that the U.S. will use nuclear weapons to finish off the Nazi German regime in such a scenario due to its desire to immediately eliminate this regime while it still can instead of waiting for this regime to build its own nukes and to begin challenging the U.S. for hegemony worldwide. After all, the U.S. doesn't appear to have been very friendly to powerful totalitarian regimes during this time.Why would the Americans destroy Germany? A nuclear-devastated Europe does not benefit them in any way. If the Germans beat Russia, terms would be agreed with the US.
