If Germany has taken out Russia, there is no scenario for a succesful cross Atlantic liberation of Europe by the Americans. There would have been no domestic appetite and the logistics are nearly impossible.Agreed. Especially if the US had no Europe to divert some of its resources to.
Which leaves the really big question. What would have happened after the US takes out Japan?
Look at that in three streams: 1) Germany is stable in Europe without attacking Russia ; or 2) Germany has beaten Russia; or 3) Germany is still fighting Russia?
The Third Reich may or may not have collapsed under the weight of it’s own contradictions, but that may not have been until the the 1970s or 1980s, after a “cold war“ with North America.
it raises the question of what the middle east would have looked like, with no Israel and no British investment in Saudi/Iraqi oil. Would Iran and or Turkey have emerged as regional powers? Aligned with whom? Germany? Or the US?
