However, the stories featured in ‘From Another Infamy’ are purely focused on incidents during and around the Second World.

Taking a range of perspectives and approaches, these stories look at a range of what if?s. What if, the Chinese fighting the Japanese invasion of 1931 had begun to receive proper support or, provoked by the sinking of US ships in China, the US Marine Corps were sent to invade Japanese territories in 1938?

How different would the war have turned out if Stalin had been debilitated by a stroke in 1938- the French government had retreated to Algeria in 1940- the Italians had launched an effective invasion of Greece or Rommel’s forces had managed to reach the Suez Canal. How would the war have ended if the D-Day landings have failed- the bridge at Arnhem had been held- the Germans had introduced squadrons of jet-powered bombers or the atomic bomb had not been developed leaving US forces compelled to invade Japan?Across twenty chapters, Alexander Rooksmoor provides a glimpse into a wide range of different settings, both engaging with the bigger picture, but also showing the impact on individuals.

Some incidents are seen through the eyes of soldiers, some from the perspective of assassins, spies and politicians. Combined they make an engaging collection to provoke thought about a whole host of ways that the world’s greatest conflict may have been different.NOTE: Unlike a number of Alexander Rooksmoor’s books, this one contains stories, not chapters of historical analysis of potential counterfactuals. Please ensure that this is the type of book you want before buying it.Alexander Rooksmoor is the author of a number of popular counterfactual books.

His publications draw on over twenty years’ experience in researching and teaching history and discussing ‘what if?’. He has even longer experience in writing fiction. This background has enabled him to produce stories that are both liable to intrigue you and challenge you.
