Product Description:
History records that, in the summer of 1864, Confederate President Jefferson Davis relieved General Joe Johnston from command of the Army of Tennessee, putting the aggressive General John Bell Hood in his place. Hood was subsequently defeated at Atlanta, allowing President Abraham Lincoln to secure reelection. The last chance of Confederate victory had been lost.

But what if history had unfolded differently?

Shattered Nation takes readers into history as it might have been. A single telegram radically alters the course of the war. As armies clash in epic battles outside Atlanta, Jefferson Davis strives to secure an independent Confederacy while Abraham Lincoln struggles desperately to keep his dream of a united America alive. A story of military adventure and political intrigue, Shattered Nation is one of the most spellbinding alternate history novels yet published.

Product Description:
With a gift for visionary fiction that “would make Robert A. Heinlein proud” (Entertainment Weekly) three-time Hugo Award-winning author Allen Steele now imagines an alternate history rooted in an actual historical possibility: what if the race to space had occurred in the early days of WWII?
It's 1941, and Wernher von Braun is ordered by his Fuehrer to abandon the V2 rocket and turn German resources in a daring new direction: construction of a manned orbital spacecraft capable of attacking the U.S. Work on the rocket—called Silbervogel—begins at Peenemunde. Though it is top secret, British intelligence discovers the plan, and brings word to Franklin Roosevelt. The American President determines that there is only one logical response: the U.S. must build a spacecraft capable of intercepting Silbervogel and destroying it. Robert Goddard, inventor of the liquid-fuel rocket, agrees to head the classified project.

So begins a race against time—between two secret military programs and two brilliant scientists whose high-stakes competition will spiral into a deadly game of political intrigue and unforeseen catastrophes played to the death in the brutal skies above America.

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:
Tragedy in Königsberg is an Alternate History/Murder Mystery novel. Set in 1956, seventeen years after the Autumn War of 1939: Imagine a world in which the Second World War lasted months not years: where there was no Fall of France, no attack on Pearl Harbour, and no Jewish Holocaust. Such a world holds all the trappings of peace and prosperity, but underneath it all a dark tension remains: suggesting the harmony is deceptive. National grievances remain unresolved, conflict only half-fought, and the desire for revenge grows ever harder to resist. When Inspector Henri Ferrand is called to Königsberg to investigate the murder of the French and German Commissioners to East Prussia, he is unwittingly embroiled in a dangerous game of international intrigue and conspiracy. Aided by his partner Gerard Vasseur and the mysterious Monsieur Lenard, Henri is forced to confront the subterranean forces seeking to shatter the fragile peace. Along the way he will encounter Soviet KGB agents, Italian Fascist police, and Nazi sympathisers, all of whom will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. Henri will discover that a world of unresolved conflicts and simmering tensions can be just as dangerous as one where war is waged with total commitment.

Jackboot Britain: The Alternate History - Hitler's Victory & The Nazi UK!

By Daniel S. Fletcher

Released: 2014-05-19
Kindle Edition (673 pages)

Jackboot Britain: The Alternate History - Hitler s Victory & The Nazi UK!
Product Description:
The Alternate History - What if Hitler beat the Brits?

JACKBOOT BRITAIN is a new novel set in an alternate 1940 in which Nazi Germany was victorious over the British Empire. Jackboot Britain is a nightmare world; the book tells a harrowing tale of militarisation, dehumanisation, prejudice, power and war, as it follows the trials and tribulations of a range of characters from various walks of life, as they struggle to exist in a Europe - and occupied UK - ruled by the Germany of Adolf Hitler.

From a platoon of captured British troops held as prisoners of war, to Major Jochen Wolf and the conflicted, and conflicting men of the SS in whose care they are placed; to the band of auxiliary partisans in the underground British resistance, anti-fascist veterans of the Spanish Civil War; to Naomi, a young, female Jewish teacher in Leeds and her clever, quirky male friend; Maisie a London shopgirl and Hans, an unwilling German soldier drafted to the Wehrmacht; Bill Wilson; ageing, monosyllabic alcoholic in a Bloomsbury pub; a humanist-libertarian journalist of renown; four young conscripts to the German Wehrmacht occupation force; Charlie, a disabled cockney street kid; the men of the SS Einsatzgruppen (action groups), whose 'police' work in occupied countries was a euphemism for murder and suppression; to the SS leaders themselves and their machinations for power and internecine intrigues, including "The Blond Beast", one of the 20th century's most notorious villains in SS and Police General Reinhard 'The Hangman' Heydrich himself...

The tapestry of their lives is woven through the powerful tale of a dystopian world that could have been...

Every aspect of ugliness and suppression associated with the barbarism of Nazi policy - from the genocidal aggression of the Security Police and SD in occupied territories to the devilish work in the shadows of the Gestapo secret police; the dehumanisation of entire races and those otherwise 'unsuitable' deemed 'life unworthy of life'; the institutionalisation of scientific racism, the glorification of war and military conquest and its effects on a generation raised under its influence; the persecutions, the lust for power; the awful internment system of the concentration camps and the savage lethality of German policy in every sphere of life is explored in this wide-ranging alternate history novel; a book that harkens to the hellish years of German atrocities across continental Europe, by showing the terrifying possibilities of what could have been in a Nazi-occupied Britain...

Jackboot Britain depicts the grim realities of a Nazi Britain and Hitler's Europe through the lives and deaths, triumphs, setbacks and tragedies of this diverse range of characters, all of whom are caught up in the carnage and chaos of war in this story of love and loss, hope and fear, prejudice, cruelty and power.

Each tale runs its course through a nightmare that seems unimaginable to the modern British sensibility, but that at one, disquieting moment in modern history, threatened to engulf the world whole. As each character manoeuvres in the dark shadow of National Socialism and its jackbooted armies, we see each story unfold as they near their own powerful conclusions, each trapped by the malevolent force that brought unparalleled suffering and chaos to the world.

Jackboot Britain, by Daniel S. Fletcher (2011) - a debut novel.
