About the book:

Robert Cowley and the editors of Military History Quarterly present a fascinating anthology of World War II essays from some of the world's most eminent historians.

"A collection of riveting essays about World War II-often asking militarily, 'What if?'" (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

"Absorbing. A must read. Cowley... has chosen judiciously, taking us to Africa, Asia, Guadalcanal and other WWII hot spots. [A] combination of solid writing and star power." (Publishers Weekly)

"Useful for the military scholar and captivating to the general reader, Cowley's collection is likely to stand among the best histories of the year...Eyewitness memoirs...lend a participatory air of authority to the proceedings. These essays will revive the drama and sense of desperation that marked WWII for a new generation of readers." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Several of the dozens of episodes examined here have never been written up before. Chronicled and assessed by several dozen top-rank contemporary military historians, unusual or seldom noticed aspects of the war come to light. A suite of surprises awaits even the most knowledgeable reader of the war's history." (Booklist )

"Can easily be read for enjoyment." (Library Journal)
