What if Stalin had signed with the West in 1939?
What if the Allies had been repulsed on D-Day?
And what if Hitler had won the war?

In this expertly written book, historians suggest what might have been if key events during the war had gone differently, from the Munich Crisis to the dropping of the first atom bomb, including Hitler's declaration of war on the United States and the D-Day landings. The authors, writing as if these and other world-changing events had really happened, project realistic scenarios based on the true capabilities and circumstances of the opposing forces. If The Allies Had Fallen is a spirited and terrifying alternate history, and a telling insight into the dramatic possibilities of World War II.

THE CONTRIBUTORS: Thomas M. Barker, Carlo D'Este, Harold C. Deutsch, Walter S. Drea, Walter S. Dunn, David M. Glantz, Robert M. Love, Peter Hoffmann, D. Clayton James, John K. Munholland, Bernard C. Nalty, Samuel J. Newland, Richard J. Overy, Frederick D. Parker, Paul Schratz, Dennis E. Showalter, Gerhard L. Weinberg, Anne Wells, Herman S. Wolk

The Scenarios presented in this book are all credible and demonstrate how narrow the margin is between victory and defeat. They also present the possible consequences of a different outcome. This is a very interesting and provoking book.

This work of alternate history looks at sixty of the most famous 'what if?' scenarios of the Second World War, from the possibility of war breaking out in 1938, through controversies that surround pearl harbor and the war on the Eastern Front, to the final days of war in Europe and in the Pacific.
The resulting mix gives this book more historical value than might have been the case if the second style had been adopted throughout, successfully dismissing a large number of popular theories about missed chances or alternative courses for the war as well as providing entertaining looks at some possible alternative worlds.
