(From the publisher):
ONCE AGAIN, GREAT LEADERS MAKE GREAT HISTORY - BUT NOT HISTORY AS WE KNOW IT...
History shows that leadership is crucial in war, but there are other factors at work. What if history were given a twist or two, and great commanders on land and sea fought their greatest battles under different circumstances?
- Suppose General Douglas MacArthur had been captured before he could escape from Manila and became a prisoner of war?
- What if the Prince of Peace came not with soft words but with a sword?
- Suppose Joan of Arc had not been burnt for heresy and had gone on to lead France very different victories?
- What if winning the Vietnam War turned out to be worse than losing it?
- Suppose Genghis Khan had been a convert to Judaism and his horde had fought for a different cause than in our universe?
- What if the Second Punic War got even weirder than than it did in our history - which, considering what really happened, ain't easy?
- Suppose even a victorious American Confederacy had trouble getting anyone to take it seriously?
Hugo Award-winner Harry Turtledove and his colleagues turn the past upside down and inside out, and the possibilities are endless...
