Sealion & Barbarossa
Operation Sea Lion
It Happened Here
This book, edited by Kenneth Macskey, who is also the author of Invasion: The Alternate History of the German Invasion of England, July 1940, is the editor this book. The book contains ten scenarios by various different authors for different military decisions that could have been made (some by the Germans, others by the Allies) during World War II.
The scenarios cover a variety of different periods and possibilities in the war, from a German Mediterranean strategy (actually two different Mediterranean strategies), to a different German strategy in Operation Barbarossa, to early German development of the atomic bomb, to Allied bombing concentrating on causing Hamburg-like firestorms, to Britain and the United States concentrating on attacking the "soft under belly" of Europe instead of focusing on the Normandy invasion. As you might expect, there is of course a scenario for a German invasion of England - if you have read Invasion: The Alternate History of the German Invasion of England, July 1940, it might be a little familar. I honestly can't say that I found all the scenarios completely plausible, but I've read every single one, several times, and I definitely enjoyed the book.
Any student of World War II history, and anybody with an interest in alternate history really should buy this book. The only possible exception that I can think of is if you are only interested in Sealion, and if you already have Invasion: The Alternate History of the German Invasion of England, July 1940, then you might not want this book - but otherwise, buy it. Buy it today. I'm certain that you won't regret it.
