What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Midwest Book Review

"Hitler Triumphant provides another alternate history 'what if' collection of scenarios, this using Hitler's decisions and key changing points during the war to provide a more scholarly survey of how different circumstances could have altered the outcomes and given Hitler victory. Most such coverages come from a science fiction viewpoint—but here the analysis of battle strategy and military might makes for a top pick for military readers seeking more than fantasy speculation."

World War II, April 2007

“Hitler Triumphant is a thoughtful, well-edited and very well-chosen selection of essays … Tsouras has assembled an A-Team of well-known historians and military analysts who have given a great deal of thought to the various turning points of World War II.”
