    In the Presence of Mine Enemies is a 2003 alternate history novel by American author Harry Turtledove. The title comes from the fifth verse of the 23rd Psalm. The novel depicts a world where the United States remained isolationist and did not participate in the Second World War, thus allowing victory to the Axis Powers, who divided the world among themselves. Still, some years after the war, the Third World War occurred, featuring the Axis Powers defeating the US and Canada.

    Set in 2010, the novel focuses on Heinrich Gimpel and a small group of Jews who survived the Holocaust by passing as Gentiles. The events occur against a backdrop that parallels the Soviet Union's last days, with characters based upon Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, and others.

    The scenario seems to me much better and more realistic than "The Man in the High Castle"

    What do you think?

    Maybe it would be something along the lines of HBO's Fatherland?
