About this title

Synopsis:

History shows that leadership is crucial in war, but there are other factors at work. What if history were given a twist or two, and great commanders on land and sea fought their greatest battles under different circumstances? Suppose General Douglas MacArthur had been captured before he could escape from Manila and became a prisoner of war? Suppose Joan of Arc had not been burned for heresy and had gone on to lead France to very different victories? Suppose Genghis Khan had been a convert to Judaism and his horde had fought for a different cause than in our universe? Turtledove and his colleagues turn the past upside down and inside out, and the possibilities are endless...

From Booklist:

With many novels and edited anthologies on the topic to his credit, Harry Turtledove has cornered the market in alternate history--or, at least, dominates it. In the third book in his Alternate Generals anthology series, he collects short stories of alternate military history whose speculative scenarios range from Joan of Arc escaping martyrdom and leading France to victory in medieval Europe to the Vietnam War ending in 1987 with the U.S. eking out victory. In John Mina's "I Shall Return," General Douglas MacArthur is sequestered as a POW in the Philippines during World War II and changes the war against the Japanese in an unexpected direction. In "East of Appomattox," Lee Allred imagines the caustic reactions of other countries when the South wins the Civil War and President Jefferson Davis continues to protect slavery. Turtledove's own contribution daringly essays alternate Christian history when Jesus first leads his followers into battle against the Romans before succumbing to Pilate. Thirteen tales to please buffs and fans of military sf and history alike. Carl Hays
