From the Munich crisis to the dropping of the first atom bomb, and from Hitler's declaration of war on the United States to the D-Day landings - historians suggest "what would have been" if key events in the war had gone differently. Written by an exceptional team of historians as if these world-changing events had really happened, realistic scenarios based on the true capabilities and circumstances of the opposing forces are projected with chilling implications. What if the Nazis had taken London? The alternate outcomes are fascinating and fully realized. If the Allies Had Fallen is a spirited and terrifying alternate history, and a telling insight into the dramatic possibilities of World War II.
Contributors include Thomas M. Barker, Harold C. Deutsch, Walter S. Dunn, Robert M. Love, D. Clayton James, Bernard C. Nalty, Richard J. Overy, Paul Schratz, Dennis E. Showalter, Gerhard L. Weinberg, Anne Wells, and Herman S. Wolk.

not quite as i expected.
this book had great views and scholarly information but seemed to not follow the title of the book. If the allies had fallen. well what would happen? how would it have come about? the last scenario actually took a look at this. the other 59 scenarios looked at the history and small minor changes. even tho the allies probably would have won no matter what... there is still the possibility that german commanders could have maneuvered and out planned the allies. granted hitler was too demanding and a micro manager to actually achieve victory. i liked what i heard and learned a good deal just didnt think the title was most fitting. if you want this book just dont expect the title and you will be fine.
