The Anglo-American Nazi War by QuantumBranching The Anglo-American Nazi War by QuantumBranching
This one is based on the conclusion of a timeline over at alternatehistory.com, which can be read here [link]

To roughly outline events (read the TL for more detail) Nazi Germany wins WWII in Europe, and lasts a while (due to the atom bomb not being invented untill considerably later than in our world) but is later beaten by a US-British Empire alliance.

Germany goes down ugly (last stand of David Koresh ugly) and most of Europe is left a chemically and bio-weapons contaminated wreck. The US is left with a determination that such a regime will never be allowed to arise again, and follows a "nuke them from orbit" form of gunship diplomacy. (The UN in this world is for democracies only)

India, which was deliberately built up as another Arsenal of Democracy in the years between Nazi victory in Europe and Round II, took off economically much earlier than in our world and the total size of the economy is perhaps slightly larger than that of the US by 2011, although still considerably poorer on a per capita basis. They are annoyed about the US's "judge, jury, and executioner" attitude towards nations that get too far out of line, and also the US-Anglosphere monopoly on access to space (the US doesn't want anyone to develop an ICBM capable of hitting them).

Read the key carefully. The map may be a bit confusing otherwise: remember, green means UN, but so does solid violet. India is disagreement with the US, but we don't have an outright cold war. Well, except for the crazies in China...

Having now read the completed timeline twice now, thoroughly, why is China portrayed as an enemy? It was liberated by the United States, Britain, and the Nationalists, who then won afterwards. Why do you make them sound like OTL's PRC ?

Hm? The TL specifically makes them out to be bad guys, pester the original writer about it.

I've read the complete timeline, I've never seen any mention of what actually happens in China after the defeat of Japan, and Calbear does quote Mao Zedong and specify that he is a "failed revolutionary", so I assume the RoC is ruling China, and the RoC was a dictatorship, but why would they go crazy?

Thank you by the way for that wonderful link starting right at the beginning of the post-war world, because now I've read the entire thread and I like the timeline even more. Stettin be remembered!

I read the comment free version, I never knew the timeline continued after the actual defeat of the Reich D:

As far as the atom bomb was concerned, the issue is that the remnants of the NKVD had managed to convince the Nazis that nuclear weapons weren't possible. The US therefore refrained from using nuclear weapons against Japan, for fear that it would spur the Nazis (which the Allies rightly guessed wouldn't surrender even if hit with dozens of nukes) to develop nukes of their own before they could be defeated.

The gruesome ending of the Pacific War (the Allies fought in China to finish off the Kwantung Army, while the Home Islands were starved into surrender -- the entire country was something like Belsen by the time the US occupied it) also made the US leery of civilian casualties, such that the Allies don't start nuking German cities until the Germans had used their own WMDs against London.

How come places like East Prussia, and Silesia weren't given over to Poland (especially to give them an access to the sea)? Considering how bitter and vengeful the US is, deporting a few million Germans would be a mere footnote.

Probably because there are are barely enough Poles left to populate the land they got back as it is...
