The remaining two are unrealistic. This AH presents the idea of Hitler having discipline knocked into him by a petty officer and developing an acute understanding of sea power and its relation to world politics. Ted Nomura and Ben Dunn of Antarctic Press have created a fictional world where several key events delayed the allies' victory. But in the summer of they suffered a dramatic defeat during the Battle of Britain, and by May the Germans had surrendered to the Allies and the Third Reich collapsed. For over 50 years, historians have debated what could have happened if a number of events had ended differently.

ByGermany was able to extract 9. If you think about it, if the Luftwaffe had fielded more jet bombers, the Allies would have put much more effort into bringing their jet fighter projects into combat sooner. While an outright invasion seems somewhat unlikely to have been realistically feasible, I think cutting Britain off could have potentially forced them to seek a negotiated peace. Geography: Nazi Germany waskm2 in Instant-Win Condition : in "Rommel versus Zhukov" the Germans destroy half of the Red Army's combat elements in Europe, temporarily restoring numerical parity in that theatre.

The historical end of the Third Reich occurred in Maybefore the Luftwaffe could bring its advanced rocket and jet aircraft into full combat service. Tranquil Fury : In "Rommel versus Zhukov," after his victory at Normandy and the deaths of Hitler and much of his inner circle, Field Marshal Rommel is persuaded by Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg to take a quick detour to the town of Dachau. I hope more will follow. What if Goering, the brilliant yet flawed Luftwaffe commander, had died prematurely in September These books deal with the idea of "what if the Japanese had followed up on the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion? But in the summer of they suffered a dramatic defeat during the Battle of Britain, and by May the Germans had surrendered to the Allies and the Third Reich collapsed.

An Alternate History Luftwaffe Victorious book

You Have Failed Me : Zhukov is sent to the gulag at the end of "The Storm and the Whirlwind," after he fails to defeat the Germans in a preemptive war. The French and American commanders are held in check by Montgomery so they won't outrun his supply plans.

Driven by the new strategy of blitzkrieg, or lightning war, it stormed across Europe in a very short time. Supremely confident, the odds seemed to be on their side. Strategy Versus Tactics : Poorly understood by the authors, who fall into the trap of treating Operations and Strategy as if they were simply 'big Tactics'.

The Germans did not 'halt', they ran out of ammunition and fuel "The Battle of Britain": What if the Luftwaffe didn't switch targets during their bombing campaign? Watch your words; they become actions. Supremely confident, the odds seemed to be on their side.

Had he died, what radical alterations in the pattern of command would have transpired? Machines that have remained unknown, as they did not reach the prototype or the drawing board project stage, are put into very realistic and detailed scenarios.
