Product Description

Review

'Hitler Triumphant' provides another alternate history 'what if' collection of scenarios, this using Hitler's decisions and key changing points during the war to provide a more scholarly survey of how different circumstances could have altered the outcomes and given Hitler victory. Most such coverages come from a science fiction viewpoint --Midwest Book Review

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Peter G Tsouras has an outstanding track record in producing these compelling compilations of speculative military history. In essence, my review is that you will not fail to enjoy this volume, if you've enjoyed such volumes as Disaster at D-Day or Third Reich Victorious, but more than a few of the scenarios described here will be familiar from other writers. I suppose this is to be expected. As Ian Kershaw's book Fatal Decisions pointed out, there are only so many turning points in World War II, and to constantly re-examine them performs the main function of this club history: to force you to reappraise your understanding of what actually happened.

Bearing this in mind, part of me was slightly disappointed to see again new essays on a Lord Halifax premiership, the seizure of Gibraltar by the Spanish, Barbarossa forgone and replaced by a drive to a rendezvous with the Japanese on the Indus, the fall of Moscow (again), and the airborne seizure of Malta. That said, the essays that describe the scenarios are subtly different from ones that have gone before, and are professionally produced, and the stimulatingly written. The essays also follow the amusing convention of having a bibliography which includes both fictional and real references (fictional references indicated by an asterisk!)

What makes this book with the money of the scenarios that are, at least to this reviewer, original: I was interested and challenged by the scenario which has a strengthened Italian Navy winning a major victory the Mediterranean, and a scenario where Mussolini is removed by an air crash leading to a Ciano premiership keeping Italy neutral.

One can almost believe the Germans really did win! A very well written book indeed, written with detailed knowledge of the period and only relatively small details have been changed, allowing the counter-factual snowball effect to gather pace. Very highly recommended indeed.

Interesting Alternate History 5 April 2007
By D. harshbarger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an interesting "what if" alternate history book.Most of the stories deal with Germany doing other campaigns other than attacking Russia.Most chapters deal with isolating Great Britain by taking Gibraltar,Malta, or Egypt and beyond.I only disliked the one chapter(that's why I gave the review 4 stars)that dealt with the battle of Kursk;it is written like a military timeline with little narrative.With that said, it is still a good read.

A top pick for military readers seeking more than fantasy speculation. 7 Nov. 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Peter G. Tsouras edits HITLER TRIUMPHANT: ALTERNATE DECISIONS OF WORLD WAR II provides another alternate history 'what if' collection of scenarios, this using Hitler's decisions and key changing points during the war to provide a more scholarly survey of how different circumstances could have altered the outcomes and given Hitler victory. Most such coverages come from a science fiction viewpoint - but here the analysis of battle strategy and military might makes for a top pick for military readers seeking more than fantasy speculation.
