Or a 1996 anti-Communist video game.

"Command & Conquer: Red Alert takes place during an unspecified period
in the 1950s of a parallel universe, which was inadvertently created by
Albert Einstein in a failed attempt to prevent the horrors of World War
II. ... Following a brief conversation between the two, Einstein shakes
Hitler's hand, and this somehow eliminates Hitler's existence from time
and returns Einstein to his point of origin.

"With the threat of Nazi Germany having been successfully removed from
history, the Soviet Union began to grow increasingly powerful under the
rule of Joseph Stalin. Had Adolf Hitler risen to power, Nazi Germany
would have emerged as a force standing in the way of Stalin's own
ambitions of conquest. Instead, left unweakened, the USSR proceeds by
seizing lands from China and then begins invading Eastern Europe, in
order to achieve Joseph Stalin's vision of a Soviet Union stretching
across the entire Eurasian  landmass."

An ahistorical, anti-communist, objectively pro-Nazi, and very good
video game.
