This is a book to dip into and consider. Eminent historians have taken a wide range of subjects and imagined what might have been – and some of the results are scary!
Topics range from dropping the atomic bomb to potatoes, and some surprising conclusions have been drawn. We also get a close look at some key events in recent history, the “inside” story if you like. And that is fascinating.

Each chapter is discussed in depth by an expert in that field, but we are still free to think up our own scenarios – what if…? But the clear insight displayed is a pleasure to read. And the choice of incidents is both varied and, in some cases, world-changing. Not all the scenes are scenes of carnage and battle, and in many of them, the very small change at the time would have had far-reaching results.

I found these stories full of interest, but better read in small chunks. Naturally, I enjoyed reading about some events more than others, but all were written with a depth of thought which was stimulating and thought-provoking – surely the essence of a good read.
