First, the title of this book is meant to invoke pop-history "clickbait", while the reality is of scholarly articles that mostly argue that the differences in policy would not lead to any change in the outcome of the war.

That being said, it''s a very mixed bag. David Glantz''s pieces on the Eastern Front are as effective as always. The Soviet army was a paper tiger in 1941, with nowhere near the logistical ability to actually take advantage of its on-paper strength in tanks, and with an inexperienced force that was the consequence of expanding too quickly (the oft-stated purges were small compared to the problem of skill). So Glantz rightly argues that either a preemptive offensive west or a defense anchored around the Stalin Line would both be doomed to fail.

Other claims are somewhat more suspicious, including the 1942/43 invasion of France ending the war sooner. The authors of those sections make their case, but I feel they overestimate the ability of the Western Allies in that time period.

While not bad and certainly better than a genuine "Axis Wins" pop-history, this book suffers from the same inconsistencies in quality that any work with a large number of contributors would have. For true enthusiasts, I recommend individual works on the specific parts in question.

Not what I expected.
Reviewed in the United States on December 20, 2020
This is not what I expected. It''s an interesting book, but the stories read more like submittals from history students. The authors are not professional writers, and most of the book is very dry. If you are expecting entertaining sci fi/alternate history, this isn''t it.

Dispelled the primary belief that slightly different actions taken by the allies or axis powers could have changed the historical outcome of ww2. The history of the war was determined by the personalities of the war era leaders and the industrial capacity of the countries involved. Once the war was set in motion, its outcome was predictable.

An entertaining read that doesn''t pretend to be a weighty tome of stupendous historical significance. That doesn''t mean it''s a lightweight effort either. Having to compress 60 scenarios into a book this size means it will be offering thought provoking but fairly brief alternatives. Working within these confines has resulted in an interesting and thoroughly readable book

There are many alternate scenarios in this book, but very few that lead to an Axis "victory". Even those that produce a survival of the Nazi regime do not result in a defeat of the allies. This book is written by historians, not fiction authors. If anything, this book explains why Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan had no hope of winning WWII.

This is not really Alternate History genre. Rather, it is an examination of points of history that could have gone otherwise by historians who are interested in "what if." Scholars will say this is not scholarship, but it is interesting speculation for the historical buff. Written by authors used to writing "scholarly" material, it can be more than a bit dry.

The first part and the last part were less about alternatives, but did have interesting insights into the dynamics, particularly the ongoing plots against Hitler in the military. The alternatives presented in the main part of the book sometimes seemed somewhat colorless.

For those with an interest in the second world war this is a very interesting read. It takes you right through the war exploring how things might have worked out very differently if the principal players had taken different courses of action at various points. As with all multi author projects quality is variable but on the whole it is an enjoyable read and not too academic for the general reader while still being based on actual history as far as possible. Most of the scenarios are perfectly plausible and while some result in radically different outcomes others only affect timescales but not the eventual outcome. As others have pointed out the title is quite misleading many of the scenarios turn out better for the allies.
