Amazon has recently released their series "Man in the High Castle". In this alternative universe, America is occupied by Nazi Germany in the East and Imperial Japan in the West.
However, would that be realistic?
It seems to be a common question - both for people interested in history and everyone else - to wonder what would have happened if the Axis had won World War 2. In this map, I have included the actual plans of the German and Japanese governments on how to divide the world after victory. This "New World Order" is not based on my own ideas, but on actual plans.
These plans also included the British Empire joining the Axis (as the Nazis always wanted them to do) and a later betrayal of Italy and annexation of some northern regions deemed Germanic. Interestingly, it seems that there haven't been any plans to conquer the USA, which the Nazis deemed "half Jewified, half Negrified" and probably too strong too physically occupy.
The map as a whole looks a bit ridiculous with two medium-sized countries jointly ruling most of the world, but then again the cold war was also characterized by two worldwide blocs being led by two not-super-big countries (in terms of population).
If you spot any factual error in my map or have any other kind of feedback, please leave a comment.
