    Any even vaguely realistic scenario for German victory wouldn't involve conquering the UK. The German plans to invade Britain were an absolute joke.

    They wanted to use River barges to transport their troops to Britain. These were extremely slow and not built for transporting troops, let alone making opposed amphibious landings. They were ****ty to the point that that they could probably have been sunk by a British destroyer sailing past them at full speed let alone by actual defences.

    Even if they reached the beaches, these barges weren't built for proper amphibious landings, allied troops drowned trying to swim a couple of metres from specialised landing ships at D Day.

    The German plan revolved around preventing the Royal Navy from attacking the barges through air superiority, but lets say they got it (extremely unlikely), if I recall correctly, they didn't actually have any functional air dropped torpedoes at that point in the war and the lack of effectiveness of their airforce (against stationary, as opposed to attacking) warships was demonstrated at Dunkirk.

    Basically the German plans would have had trouble getting their troops across the channel unopposed. However, if we magic away those problems, say the RAF was trashed and the Royal Navy sat in port so everything went perfectly for them, what might happen?

    The German plans involved landing three divisions of troops on beaches and one paratrooper division. So four divisions. Two problems with this. 1) The British had approximately 25 divisions capable of combat in the UK and 2) the Germans had absolutely no way of actually supplying their troops, especially once large Royal Navy elements reached the combat zone.

    End result of an invasion under the best circumstances, even with magical assistance to the Germans: Massive loss of transport capacity and four divisions annihilated.

    So... Germany winning the war would really mean Germany dominating continental Europe. We certainly wouldn't be speaking German as a first language, but it would suck to be the rest of Europe.

      Well, Hitler wanted Britain to join him anyway, he saw the British people as part of his Aryan master race. He didn't want to fight us or invade us, he wanted to stand alongside us ... so that might have played in our favour.
      Where did you see this? I'm quite intrigued.

      In my opinion, the world would have Nazified, but it would have collapsed once Hitler and his lot died, meaning a probably devastating collapse of governments and economies worldwide. The only cure for this would be to form a true United Allied State, in which all nations in the world would collaborate for the greater good.

      Hitler himself wrote about it.

      There are references to the British in Mein Kampf, particularly about how the Germans should be more British, and he wrote another book that was not published in his lifetime entitled Zweites Buch (second book) which detailled his views on foreign policy.

      In this, he wrote that he wanted to form alliances with Italy (then fascist) and Britain (then still the British Empire) - together, we would fight France and her eastern allies, before breaking apart the Soviet Union. Then we would all fight the USA, who he viewed as his greatest enemy.

      He viewed Britain as another dominant Aryan power, and wanted alliances so that we would stand together. Over the years, he did try to ... but we always refused anything more that small concessions, and in return we wanted to protect Poland's freedom, which he did not want.

      Aren't we already like Big Brother? The UK has the highest concentration of CCTV cameras per square mile, apparently.
      In 1984 Big Brother is a bit more extreme than a lot of CCTV cameras about the place.

      You can never really know. I think the beer would be better for starters though.
      I like German beer from time to time but a Guinness is fine for me, too. but not warm as it was served in a pub I have been to. disgusting. beer has to be cold and should not have the same temperature the room has.

      but anyway, if the Germans would have won the war the USA would probably not be the most powerful nation in the world.

      Even the Royal family in the UK has German roots but they changed their names not to be identified with Germany any longer.
