The Coming Conquest of England is a classic utopian novel that displayed the German lust for world domination long before either of the two world wars.
"The story that I shall portray in the following pages is not a chapter of the world's past history; it is the picture as it clearly developed itself to my mind's eye, on the publication of the first despatch of the Viceroy Alexieff to the Tsar of Russia. And, simultaneously like a flash of lightning, the telegram which the Emperor William sent to the Boers after Jameson's Raid crosses my memory--that telegram which aroused in the heart of the German nation such an abiding echo. I gaze into the picture, and am mindful of the duties and aims of our German nation. My dreams, the dreams of a German, show me the war that is to be, and the victory of the three great allied nations. Germany, France, and Russia--and a new division of the possessions of the earth as the final aim and object of this gigantic universal war."

This is a good book in that it has a good plot and that if you know history you can see that this could of happened. There are typos that make you think about what the word is supposed to be. One example of this is the word Eussia you can tell that this is supposed to be Russia.
