Summary
In this compelling book, ten military historians focus upon what might have happened if at ten crucial turning-points of the war Hitler had taken a different direction, or how he would have reacted if the Allies had changed course. There is a striking conviction about these self-contained scenarios. All are within the bounds of what could genuinely have occurred, projecting only from factual situations and the options that were available. Technical innovations and weapon capabilities retain practicability, with later technology excluded. Real people behave in character. The Hitler Options is a fascinating collection of original studies raising new possibilities, and will grip the reader as much by its thought-provoking content as by the sheer excitement of campaigns and battles that might have dramatically changed the history of the world
