I have read many alternative history novels and stories before and this really has to be one of the best ones. I have also read many of the authors previous books before and had mixed feelings about some of them but this is easily the best book he has written.
SPOILER ALERTS -
An interesting plot begins with the Heydrich surviving his Prague posting and working closely with German Intelligence, a new strategy with the German Navy completely destroying and stopping Allied Arctic Convoys supplying the USSR, Turkey coming in to the war on the German side, Manstein taking over strategy on the Stalingrad front with Paulus being transferred back to Germany all combine in to a plot where the Germans win the battle of Stalingrad and change the whole course of the war!
I wont say much more and leave you to discover the details of how the above happens and to discover the interesting conclusions but it really is a great read.
And the previous two reviewers are discussing the size of the book? Its a standard sized hardback novel with some pictures, photos and maps throughout.
I was totally gripped by this booked and literally finished it in two sittings (very unusual for me).
Author clearly has an excellent knowledge of the subject and nicely includes the known personalities of those involved like Manstein and Paulus.
Very believable account and nicely written.
If I have any negatives it would be that it's a little too tidily sewn up at the end (although the pedant in me baulks at Messerschmitt Bf109's being called Me109's...grrrr)
As a student of WW2 military Ostfront history I enjoyed it immensely.
Must get some more of this guy's books!
If I was going to point out a weakness I thought the naval battle over PQ17 a little far fetched.

I admit the story is OK,but the part where the navy are destroyed,to fit the alternate story line ruined it for me.Never would have happened.Published on 10 Mar. 2014 by w.j.martin
