Counterfactuals such as The Hitler Options or especially IF THE ALLIES HAD FALLEN (a very deceptive name) go into trying to reverse Allied mistakes. The latter has an article about if Germany went with an invasion through Belgium instead of the Ardennes, it's conclusion being that Hitler would still have driven into northeastern France, and after an operational pause finished off the rest of France although being strategically exhausted.

I suggest "If the Allies Had Fallen: Sixty Alaternative Scenarios of World War II" by Dennis E. Showalter and Harold C. Deutsch.
It has maps, but the text is getting hard for me to read.
Prepare for anything, and you will need nothing.

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned "Disaster at D-Day" by Peter Tsouras. Definitely my favourite alternate history book alongside "The Third World War" by Harold Coyle.

Good book, if i remember correctly he concludes what happens after the last page as one of the contributors of the book Third Reich Victorious: Alternate Decisions of World War II.

Grey Tide in the East by Andrew J. Heller. Kaiser Wilhelm II stucks to his original decision to halt the invasion of Belgium and re-deploys four armies to the eastern front. The German head of Military Railroads had a plan for this scenario and wrote about it after the war. WW 1 ends in 1915. No Somme, no blood bath on the western front.
A Man and a Plane: An Alternate Germany - Joseph T Major - The Red Baron survives WW 1 and becomes the leader of Germany in the 1920s. Enjoyable read.
