Based on a series of fascinating What ifs posed by leading military historians, this compelling new alternate history recontructs the moments during World War II which could conceivably have altered the entire course of the Second World War and led to a German victory. Based on real battles, actions and characters, each scenario has been carefully constructed to reveal how, at points of decision, a different choice or minor incident could have set in motion an entirely new train of events altering history forever. Scenarios in this volume include the fall of Malta in 1942 and the likely consequences and the possibility of Halifax making peace with Hitler.

Review: Hitler Triumphant: Alternate Decisions of World War II (Greenhill Alternate History Anthologies)

User Review  - Duane - Goodreads

I've always enjoyed the genre of alternative history, but this book never grabbed me like others have. It tended to be over resourced with information which made the entire story long winded and boring. It read more like a text book then a novel. I'd pass this one up. Read full review

User Review  - James - Goodreads

For me, this book was not as interesting as others in the genre - not sure why. Some of these essays kind of dragged. It was still a worthwhile read, though. Alternate history is, in general, a fascinating area in that so many events could easily have happened in other ways. Read full review
