9781853676895: Dixie Victorious: An Alternate History of the Civil War

Based on a series of fascinating What ifs" posed by leading military historians, this intriguing new alternate history reconstructs moments during the American Civil War which could conceivably have altered the entire course of the war and led to a Confederate victory. Commencing with real battles, actions and characters, each scenario has been carefully constructed to reveal how at points of decision a different choice or minor incident could have set in motion an entirely new train of events altering history forever. What if Sherman was stalled outside Atlanta, and Lincoln lost the crucial 1864 election? Or if Stuart's Cavalry at Gettysburg arrived in time to give Lee the freedom of operation he lacked in reality? These and many more convincing scenarios are played out against the dramatic and colorful backdrop of this critical and bloody era of American history.

Review:

Publishers Weekly "Solid and provocative . . . This latest entry in a series that’s a byword among alternate-history fans succeeds in avoiding white supremacist fantasies and is well up to the very high standard set by earlier entries."
Civil War News"Dixie Victorious is both fascinating and an entertaining read. The latest entry in the Greenhill Alternate History series is highly recommended for the reconstruction of actual historic events to produce speculative alternative results."



British Army Review
"This will appeal to historians, re-enactors and wargamers, and will undoubtedly stir up debate amongst expert and amateur Civil War enthusiasts alike. Anyone with even a vague interest in the American Civil War will find this an interesting, entertaining and thought-provoking read, and would not be disappointed in seeking out a copy."Midwest Book Review"Dixie Victorious goes beyond most sci-fi scenarios of alternate history to pose scenes by historians who ask 'what if'. Key battle changes, outcomes of general decisions, and more are provided in realistic scenarios which alternate battle results and actions to show how a different choice or incident could've altered history. It's the professional historian participation that makes this an engrossing presentation."
