Juliana's attempt to stop the Nazis lands her in a precarious position. Himmler and John Smith lead a lavish celebration of Year Zero. Amid a series of successes, Smith faces a setback. Kido returns ...
Dick toyed around with several ideas for a sequel, but he couldn't bring himself to do more research on Nazi Germany, which he found profoundly depressing and soul-draining enough for one novel. Among them were: The first draft of The Ganymede Takeover. A story called "Ring of Fire" where the Nazis discover our world and steal nuclear weapons while a hybrid Japanese-American culture emerges. An early version of Radio Free Albemuth where the VALIS satellite was communicating Hawthorne Abendsen's next book to him and keeping the Gestapo away. See more »
The total population of both Germany and Japan in 1940 was actually 5 million people less than the total US population. While the history of the series' universe is different than that of reality, besides the US' manufacturing base exceeding both nations, the population difference would have made their ability to conquer the country an impossibility.

Excellent - it's far the most promising pilot of all pitched for 2015
I'm a big PKD as well as Ridley Scott fan so I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw it on my Prime home page... and the pilot has vastly exceeded my expectations! It is visually impeccable, great cinematography and CG and art direction, script is pretty close to the original book, excellent pacing, very good acting... characters at this point are not too deep but this is a one-hour pilot, it supposed to tease us, not reveal everything, let alone (correctly) focusing on story development right now, not character development (which inherently requires a few episodes.) Excellent job, this MUST be continued, Amazon! =)
