What if histories are always fascinating. What if Hitler had invaded Britain, what if Napoleon had actually won at Waterloo. Generally, the type of alternative histories look at the aftermath, but this one is concerned with looking at the alternative strategies available to Napoleon at Waterloo and what would the outcome of those have been. The author does this by skilfully weaving actual fact and history into alternate history, without the joins showing. In this regard it sits halfway between the aforementioned histories and straight up historical fiction but does offer an intriguing look at how the fighting could have panned out.
