Overview

Based on a series of fascinating µWhat ifs' posed by leading military historians, this compelling new alternate history recontructs the moments during the Battle of the Bulge 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 for ever. What if the Germans successfully prevented Patton from riding to the rescue at Bastogne? Or if the Allies had suffered a major setback at the Battle of the Bulge which allowed the Red Army to overrun Berlin and drive on to the Rhine? What if Hitler had not launched his massive gambit and, instead, the Allies had progressed with the operations plan they had prior to the Bulge? These are some of the intriguing scenarios played out by leading authors.

The separate what if’s were great page turners. Each author explored different aspects of the battle.

I will start this review by saying that I love history and the what ifs aspect of it. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about WWII. To understand and follow this book you knowledge of the Battle of the Bulge needs to be quite in depth. Several times I found myself wondering if the scenerio he writes about was truth or fiction. Interesting read though.
