Multi-published historical writer, Kev Richardson, writes a ‘What If…’ tale of WWII, centered in Australia. Think about it. What would have happened had Adolf Hitler hadn’t decided to take on Russia? What if…Japan hadn’t been driven out of Australia? What if…America hadn’t joined the fray with their Atomic bomb that forced the Japanese surrender? As a world encompassing war…whose flag would we be saluting today if…victory had gone differently? This book is definitely a 5+ thought provoking read.
Richardson, in this fantastical historical, paints a clear picture of what could have happened to the world had Hitler not attacked Russia when he did, but continued having its manpower strength with him rather than against him.
In mid 1941, Britain was reeling with unreadiness to defend itself against invasion, he writes. As was the USA when Japan attacked it in December of that year, he hints. Nazi Germany was on a roll and had Hitler added the forces used against Russia, to those already active on his western front, nothing could have stopped him taking Britain. While Russia subdued the Middle East, Germany could well have then, aided Japan in its fight against the USA, saving Japan from being turned around.
Japan could well have then captured the entire Pacific as Germany had captured the entire continent of Europe. America alone could not have stopped that happening.
A brilliant expectation of how the war could have flowed, had Hitler not made that monumental error.
