About this book
Reissue of the book that first put Niall Ferguson on the map, a witty, clever and contrary attempt to reimagine ways history might have worked out differently.
What if Britain had stayed out of the First World War? What if Germany had invaded Britain in 1940? What if Nazi Germany had defeated the Soviet Union? How would England look if there had been no Cromwell? What if there had been no American Revolution? And what if John F Kennedy had lived? This book deals with these questions.
