About this title

Synopsis:

In the tradition of Fatherland and SS-GB, Hugo Award-winning author Ben Bova unveils a fascinating tale of an alternate history - in which one bold, top secret plan changes forever the shape of the world.
1945: As the War in Europe winds to its bloody close, and a crazed Adolf Hitler awaits the end in an underground bunker in Berlin, the Allied forces - led by FDR, Churchill, and Stalin - look warily at the post-war world - and at each other. Once the war is over, who will control Berlin, as well as the future of Eastern Europe?
In the world we know, the Red Army marched on Berlin and the Cold War began. In Triumph, however, Bova imagines another possible twist of fate, whose consequences result in both a new world order and gripping human drama that will keep you turning pages until the powerful conclusion.
Convinced that Stalin poses a threat to democracy as great as Hitler, Churchill launches a risky, covert operation involving a ceremonial sword, future cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, and a small dose of lethal plutonium.
Mixing startling fictional surprises with genuine historical figures such as General George S. Patton and British spy Kim Philby, Triumph is an irresistible and compelling peek at a world that might been.

From Publishers Weekly:

The prolific SF author of the Voyagers series suggests what might have happened at the end of WW II if Stalin had died and Roosevelt had lived. In Bova's scenario, Winston Churchill presents Joseph Stalin with a ceremonial sword at the 1943 conference in Tehran. Fearing a Soviet attempt to dominate Europe once Germany is defeated, and loathing Stalin as a dictator worse than Hitler, Churchill slips a piece of plutonium into the sword, dooming Stalin to death by radiation poisoning. Further, FDR has given up smoking, thus preventing the stroke that in reality caused his death toward the end of the war. And so a radically different postwar Europe comes into being. Featuring Eisenhower, Patton and other known figures, and covering the 30 days of April 1945, this tale had potential. Written in functional, mechanical prose and devoid of narrative drive, it seems less a work of fiction than facile historical speculation.
