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.

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!

Provision: A 'What If?' Novel of the Second World War

By Alexander Rooksmoor

A.R.C. Rooksmoor
Released: 2016-10-14
Kindle Edition (466 pages)

Provision: A  What If?  Novel of the Second 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, on both sides of the Atlantic. It is more like 'Fatherland' by Robert Harris or 'Dominion' by C.J. Sansom than a book such as 'Disaster at D-Day' 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 a different Second World War, then it will be of interest.

Rather than turn the history of the Second World War upside down to imagine a victory for Hitler, this book considers how just one night’s bombing could have had an immense impact on the course of the war. In real history, for eleven months of 1942, Allied codebreakers were unable to read the ‘Shark’ version of the Enigma cipher that was used by German submarines. This led to a tripling of the amount of Allied shipping being sunk in the Atlantic. What would have happened if this situation had not been resolved? What if the Allies had struggled, even more than they did in our history, to read a range of Enigma messages?

Through the eyes of four members of the prosperous Seymour family, ‘Provision’ witnesses this alternate history in the air, on land, in the fields and on the home front. It looks at the weapons, technology and the policies that this different war would have fostered and the effects on the people of the Allied nations. Britain imported more than two-thirds of its food and much of its raw materials. How would the war in North Africa, on the Eastern Front and the Far East have been affected if such supplies had begun to run critically short? What if there was inadequate to ship on to the Soviets and the soldiers fighting in the Middle East? With numerous US troopships being sunk in the Atlantic, where would the American focus for the war have fallen? How long would D-Day have been delayed?

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 longer Second World War and one that, for many people, would have been harsher. While filling the book with carefully-considered ‘what if?’ developments, he also provides rich characters to engage with, as they work to survive the greater challenges of this alternate history and look to aid and soldiers from North America to bring the conflict to an end.

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!!!
