Note: this topic is intended to discuss a 'what if...' scenario only. As you're all aware, this is a sensitive subject so please reply thoughtfully. Thanks. Though this may sound like something more well suited to be put in the lounge, I thought I'd put it here as my interests lies in this is from a writing perspective. So the question is rather simple. What if WW2 had been won by Germany? If a story started in, say, the year 2000, what would western society look like? It seems to me that such a society would be quite an interesting backdrop for a story. But then again, I agree with the notion that ideas are cheap so I am not here to have that validated. Now in terms of how such a world would work, I can think of quite a few things myself, but I am interested in your thoughts as well. Something I didn't think of for example was that, without a war going on, the leaders of the NSDAP might actually have started to quibble amongst each other and began an internal war for control. Would Hitler still be the supreme leader of Germany or would some other prominents have conspired against him and disposed of him? From what we know, not all of his henchman were as loyal to him as they pleaded to be... Also, would technology have developed the same way? Personally I don't think so, but I find it hard to imagine how else it would've. Just to be perfectly clear, I can think of a lot of things myself but since this all belongs in the realm of fiction, I thought it'd be interesting to hear some other people's thoughts on it as well.
