Even if they were able to militarily defeat the US Navy somehow, did Imperial Japan ever have enough actual manpower to occupy and pacify the whole West Coast of the United States on top of occupying China and Southeast Asia?
Did anyone else find it a little odd how in this show the Japanese have harmonized their racial policies with that of Nazi Germany, specifically with regard to anti-Semitism? Historically Imperial Japan in WW2 repeatedly denied German requests to adopt anti-Semitic policies, and either offered safe refuge to or permitted to transit through Japanese territory many thousands of Jewish refugees fleeing from the Nazis. Unlike much of Europe, Japan has no cultural, religious, or historical baggage to form an antisemitic attitude.

Those retard weren't able to maintain their logistic ligne to supply their troops in Russia, 1800km away.
Please tell me how they could invade a country located 6900km away from Germany and with a fucking ocean between them.

Please don't ever post this again
Essentially, Philip K. Dick had no actual interest in writing an actually accurate take on what would happen from a military standpoint in such a situation. The story is more of a metafiction about alternate history, in the guise of an alternate history, which is why I've always found it strange that it's generally considered an example of straight alt-history.
The Man in the High Castle, well, it wouldn't have happened.
Hitler would have taken over most of Europe. I don't even think it would all be known as Germany or the Third Reich or all that. It'd probably just be a series of fascist puppet states. Japan would be too busy with China to want anything from the US.
And as >>9248 said, the US would've sought peace after the fall of Europe.
Would Hitler keep fighting?
No, that's fucking /retarded/.
There's so many guns in the US that he would have to deal with both our army and a bunch of patriotic, hyped up motherfuckers ready to resist.
>Basing your naval strategy on fighting Russians
The Man in the High Castle was never intended to actually be a reasonable study of what would have happened if the axis had won the war. For god's sake, the book ends with the main characters finding out that their universe is an alternate history novel.
