This book is a serious collection of essays by (mainly) American military historians, who assess the chances of events in WW2 happening other than they did in our time line.
From the chances of a successful assassination of Hitler; Britain sueing for peace in 1940 with a victorious Germany; Hitler not diverting his panzers on their drive to Moscow in 1941; the Japanese launching a second strike against Pearl Harbor, or the A-Bomb not working in time to be dropped in 1945 - there's alot to choose from.
Unlike fictional 'what ifs' the historians here are pretty scrupulous, and clearly state the the further one goes from the point of divergence - the harder it is to work out the exact course of events.
I do agree that the publishers have been a bit naughty in changing the tile for this re-issue. If the Allies Had Fallen is not an accurate title, as the chances of a Germany victory are confined to one of the book's 17 chapters. But don't let this put you off. If you are a serious student of counter-factual history (rather than some latter-day sad Nazi fantasist who actually wishes we were living in some ghastly Nazi Festung Europa)
- then this book is for you.
True, in the end the authors don't weigh the chances of Germany winning very highly beyond 1942/43. But that is because of one simple fact. Germany's chances of winning a global conflict against both the USSR and the USA (plus the rest) were just that - slim. Thankfully.
