informed, interesting alternate history
this is a collection of alternate WWII outcomes from very well informed authors. the best stories of the collection dwell on how close the contest was; and, the differering ideologies within and between key figures in the contest.
My favorite stories feature either Hitler defeferred to another career in the Navy and Rommel's successful use of echelon formations strategy to win an Eastern campaign.

A fresh look at WW2 - false but makes one wonder.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
First the negative stuff. The narrator did nothing to improve the story. Almost monotone at times, specially when he was telling of countless divisions, regiments, men and such in different armies. I sometimes got totally lost in it. That is of course not entirely the narrator's fault as the stories are sometimes kind a like it. Having said that, I felt as I was listening to flat alternative history book but not a fiction. By adding personal conversations and personal experiences it would have been so much more interesting and thrilling. And if the narrator is good that brings extra spice to it. Well, when you have figured out the strategic movements of the 6th Soviet army and the 6th German army for instance, demolition of various Polish towns and so on, one get carried away in the story. All the mistakes that were made in real WW2 are suddenly turned around and you feel strangely satisfied not even being a Nazi sympathizer. I have often wandered, why did they do this or that and here is everything changed for the better ... or not?
Would you be willing to try another one of David Baker’s performances?
I'm not quite sure.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
