Overview

A DAMNED FINE WAR
A Novel of Alternate History
By Bill Yenne

May 1945: Having defeated Hitler, Josef Stalin sets out to conquer the world with his mighty Red Army. One man stands in his way: General George S. Patton, Jr.

A young journalist finds herself face-to-face with a sinister conspiracy to ignite World War III in the ashes of World War II. A young GI finds himself face-to-face with the unthinkable. They are suddenly caught up in a sweeping drama with global implications

Writes Charles M. Province of the General George S. Patton, Jr. Historical Society, “A Damned Fine War is A Damned Fine Book! Patton did, indeed, have the intelligence, ability, and capacity for five-star rank.”


Editorial Reviews:

Bill Yenne’s A Damned Fine War is an action-packed, Patton-size novel. This book, a classic battle between good and evil played out on an international stage, is fast moving and entertaining. Any person interested in history will be properly moved by the what-if scenarios involving victorious armies and men of history. A great read. I highly recommend it!
—Brian Sobel, Author of The Fighting Pattons


I have always enjoyed counterfactual histories, but good ones are more than just entertainment. Alternative histories can make us think about what might have happened if things had turned out a little differently, and what the consequences would have been. Bill Yenne’s A Damned Fine War succeeds triumphantly on both accounts. It is an excellent read, and offers us some sobering “might have beens.”
— Gary Sheffield, Professor of War Studies, University of Birmingham (UK)
