NOTE: This is the 2nd Edition which is now on sale. Responding to feedback from readers, the book has been thoroughly revised and re-written with the aim of being accessible to a broader audience.
NOTE: 'In Other Trenches' DOES NOT contain stories. It has chapters analysing different potential outcomes in history. It is closest in style to the ‘what if?’ collections edited by Peter Tsouras, Robert Crowley, Duncan Brack, Niall Ferguson and Andrew Roberts. It is suggested that you check them out if you are uncertain whether this one is the sort of book you are looking for.
The book draws on Alexander Rooksmoor’s two decades researching, teaching and discussing real history and its possible alternatives. Mixing thoroughly researched fact and well-written speculation it looks at both the detailed changes that could have occurred as well as much broader potential outcomes. This is a book that will fascinate anyone with an interest in why a central event of modern history unfolded the way it did. Fans of alternate history will find ‘In Other Trenches’ a book they cannot put down and will rush to discuss once they have finished reading it.
