Alternate History Books


Welcome to Alternate History Books, the site about alternate history and counterfactuals.

Ever wanted to know what might have happened if history had turned out differently? On this web site, we review books about alternate history - events that might have been that weren't.
  • Some of the books contain serious historical studies of what might have been if leaders of the past had made different decisions or luck had not influenced historical events in a particular way.

  • Other books that we look at, include novels or short stories - sometimes these books involve realistic changes to history that could have happened, but didn't - whereas in other cases, they involve fantastic elements such as time travel or travel between parallel worlds, dinosaurs or even or vampires.
We hope you enjoy our website, and don't forget to tell all your friends about us too!

The Three Eagles: A 'What If?' Novel of the U.S.A., Mexico and the First World War

By Alexander Rooksmoor

A.R.C. Rooksmoor
Released: 2017-02-09
Kindle Edition (385 pages)

The Three Eagles: A  What If?  Novel of the U.S.A., Mexico and the First World War
 
Product Description:
NOTE: This book is a well-rounded alternate history novel which means it looks at the impact of a different history on the lives of a number of characters. Consequently it is more like a book by Harry Turtledove rather than a book by Peter Tsouras. While it involves some battle scenes, this is not a book simply of military action that just lists various units and how they might have fought against each other. If you are looking simply for a book outlining alternative battles then this book is not for you. If you want an actual novel about the Americas in an alternate early 20th century, then it will be of interest.

The novel is in three sections. If this format is not to your taste, please do not buy the book.


It took 23 months from the sinking of the ‘Lusitania’ and the resumption of German submarine attacks on US shipping for the third time, before the USA entered the First World War. Meanwhile, in 1914 US marines had been sent to occupy locations in Mexico and in 1916 the so-called Punitive Expedition, a small-scale invasion of Mexico was launched by American forces to chase after revolutionaries. It only needed very minimal differences for the USA never to have entered the First World War and instead to have been drawn into a sustained war in Mexico. Drawing on US plans of the time, this book looks at what might have happened both within the Americas and across the world if this had occurred.

The book is in three sections set in 1917, 1920 and 1923. It features the adventures of a soldier, a spy and a pilot as they deal with the situations that have been thrown up by the decisions of the US President. Having just about won the war, the Germans seek to extend their influence in Mexico as a stepping stone for a global belt of control running from the Caribbean around to Pacific Islands. Those concerned are not simply politicians and commanders but also businesses seeking to exploit or being excluded from the Mexican economy and from the regions the forces, backed by German arms and troops, have occupied.

Alexander Rooksmoor has been writing alternate history fiction for over twenty years, based on a career researching and teaching history. In this full length novel he shows how a small change could have led to a different outcome for the First World War and the ripples this would have had across North America and the wider world. While filling the book with carefully-considered ‘what if?’ developments, he also provides rich characters to engage with, as they work to survive the challenges of this alternate history and to ensure that the USA is not left at a detriment as a result of the decision taken in 1917.

THE KNIGHT S GAMBIT: The Alternate History Novel of the Battleship TIRPITZ and Convoy PQ17. (The Malta Fulcrum WW2 Alternate History Series)
 
Product Description:
"THE KNIGHT'S GAMBIT" is the alternate history novel of the German battleship Tirpitz, Allied convoy PQ17 and the Battle of Bear Island. In Book 1 of the Malta Fulcrum Alternate History Series, "OPERATION HERKULES", the Axis powers have seized the Mediterranean island of Malta in a daring airborne operation, mauling the British Royal Navy in the process. With his supply lines secured, Field Marshall Rommel and his famed Afrika Korp set their sights on Cairo and the Suez Canal in Egypt.
Now the western Allies are determined to avenge the Malta defeat and recapture the strategic initiative by delivering desperately needed Lend-Lease supplies to the Soviet Union with convoy PQ17. The Germans are just as determined to stop them. Tirpitz sails to destroy the convoy. But the Allied battleships HMS Duke of York and USS Washington have set a trap for Tirpitz, and the men and ships of PQ17 are the bait! The chessboard is set for the largest fleet action of the European war!

Product Description:
In 2150 Earth is just recovering from an ecological nightmare. Rising sea levels prompted generations of war. Worldwide peace yielded many dividends, of which lunar settlements was one. A hidden alien base is discovered near the moon’s South Pole. As a result, Earth is involved in the last battle of an interstellar war and the planet suffers catastrophic atmospheric damage, plunging the planet back into its carbon crisis. The only way to avoid this is to send someone back in time and change some bad environmental habits as preparation for the forthcoming alien attack – and perhaps even prevent it. And the best way to do this is to ensure Italy defeats Great Britain in the Second World War. This is the story of how a time traveler with a database full of designs for weapons, electronics, and green tech changes Italian culture, commerce, and industry. By introducing key pieces of military hardware – and by bribing Mussolini – the time traveler is able to make the impossible a reality. Science fiction, history, peacetime romance, and wartime action, "Mussolini’s Redemption: Mare Nostrum" is an epic what if novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Amazing!!!!! March 5, 2013
This novella was sooooo good! I usually dont read books under 100 pages. But this one caught my attention. I love historical fiction, Native Americans, vampire, zombie and ectera books. I have been longing for someone to write a story about NA or historical zombies because I wondered what people would do if that happened back then. Well I got it answered in this story! Amazing writing and storyline! Cant wait for the sequel. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Product Description:
The Civil War comes alive in all its passion and fury–only now the Brits are fighting . . . alongside the Confederacy

Outraged when the U.S. Navy seizes three Confederates aboard an English sailing ship, Britain retaliates by entering the fray in support of the Rebels–and suddenly it’s a whole new war.

Once again, cotton is king as the North’s blockade crumbles before the might of the Royal Navy. While Lincoln confronts the monumental challenge of vanquishing mighty Britannia, the Redcoats revive their 1812 penchant for burning down American cities, and Union troops see Canada as ripe for the picking. From the Mississippi bayou to the Pennsylvania farmlands to the woods of Maine, the great armies of Generals Grant and Lee face off in the nation’s deadliest conflict. And to the victor goes history.
