I'm 150 or so pages into a novel that has a successful July 20 plot that leads to Rommel taking over Germany, a week long ceasefire that lessens the gains of Bagration which allows a re-formed OKW/OKH the ability to fight better and not get their asses kicked on both fronts, a British Army liaison talking Goethe with (I think) von Kluge (or maybe von Bock? I don't have my notes here at work), a half-Dutch/half-German Corleone family analogue in Berlin, a soon-to-be PTSD affected Germany army squad leader who (eventually) becomes the mob family's best hitman, and a German staff officer/aide who eventually pulls an Edith Wilson on Rommel when he has a stroke and de facto runs the country. That's book 1 of a planned 3. Book 1 ends with a general peace in Europe, which through handwavium lets the Germans keep that part of Poland west of the Oder and east of the Neisse (but has the rest of OTL Germany's post WW2 borders). Book 2 deals with Japan (trying to find a way that FDR/Truman doesn't drop The Bomb, but I keep running into a wall - so any advice there would be cool!) and a Paris Peace Conference 2.0 taking place in Switzerland and the eventual separation of Europe into three camps (USA/UK, Germany (maybe with Austria? Haven't decided yet) and the USSR. Book 2 will take us to like 1950-51, and Book 3 deals with a German-Soviet War that sparks over Germany funding anti-communist partisans in Poland and Hungary. The history is very implausible, but I'm having so much fun writing the viewpoint characters (all original after a short prologue from Rommel and von Stauffenberg's POV detailing Rommel's trip to Berlin and CvS's successful july 20 bombing) that I don't really care at this point. The characters and their struggles and successes are what drive the story for me, not the fact that this timeline is more or less ASB. Maybe I'll post it here, maybe not. I've been working on and off on it since mid 2012. Sometimes I write pages at a time, othertimes I won't touch it for months on end, but I'm always thinking about it.
