Hayden, G. Miki. Pacific Empire
Divergence: 1939 CE
What if: Japan avoided joining in the Tripartite alliance with Germany and Italy, but subsequently attacked the US Pacific Fleet in Hawaii in December 1939, and two days later invaded the Hawaiian islands.
Summary: Nine stories of Japan's Pacific Empire from 1939 to 2003. With the US knocked out of the Pacific, Japan gobbles up British territories, only stopping when Australia becomes too large a goal to consume. Later efforts focus more on rapprochement with Britain and the US in order to open economic markets.
