Alternative History has always been a favorite of mine; while some might quibble that the collection here is uneven, I appreciate having so much pulled together within the covers of a single volume. ( )

This is a collection of essays by prominent historians. Each essay discusses a pivotal historical incident, and creates a "what if?" scenario. Some of the essays were fascinating, some not so much, but there is a lot of history in this book, and it led me down quite a few new (to me, at least) reading paths. Apparently, this book is a combination of What If? and What If ?2. I found the second half (What If?2) more interesting because the essays were more contemporary. Fascinating book for a history buff, or to spark a fire in a non-history buff! ( )

I was disappointed in this book. The cover blurb promised far more speculation than the book delivered. I was expecting to find more fleshing out of how the various contributors thought things would have happened if certain historical events had gone differently; instead, there was much more about the specifics of the events, and how the actual outcome led to the history we know. Reasonably well-written, and I learned a bunch of historical trivia, but that's not what I was expecting. ( )
