Alexander : invincible king of Macedonia by Peter Tsouras( )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.E.), who reigned as king of Macedonia for only thirteen years, set a flame of conquest that introduced the dynamism of Hellenism to the Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and South Asian worlds and established a standard of leadership and military conquest that was the envy of the most successful Roman emperors, medieval knights, and steppe barbarians. Julius Caesar wept that he could not surpass Alexander, while Napoleon could only dream of such invincibility." "Alexander had the great fortune to be born the able son of Philip II, one of the most talented men of war and politics produced by the Hellenic world, who created for Alexander the foundation of the Macedonian state and army, the tools of his future greatness. Alexander's invincibility was the product of profound genius, physical perfection, boundless energy, imagination, daring, intellect, and vision. He was a master tactician, strategist, logistician, diplomat, and statesman, with had the ability to win the affection and obedience of others. Even his enemies were quick to fall victim to his valor and charm. His personal attributes and accomplishments were so far removed from those of ordinary men that he achieved almost godlike status within his lifetime. Above all, he was the penultimate man of war, one of history's greatest soldiers and generals."--Jacket
Dixie victorious : an alternate history of the Civil War by Peter Tsouras( )

13 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 1,264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Could the South have won the Civil War? Based on real battles, actions, and characters, ten scenarios have been carefully constructed to reveal how at points of decision a different choice or minor incident could have set in motion an entirely new train of events. What if Sherman was stalled outside Atlanta, or Lincoln lost the crucial 1864 election? Or if Stuart's Cavalry at Gettysburg arrived in time to give Lee the freedom of operation he lacked in reality? These and many more scenarios are played out against the dramatic and colorful backdrop of this critical and bloody era of American history. Based on a series of "what ifs" posed by leading military historians, this new speculative history reconstructs moments during the American Civil War that could conceivably have altered the entire course of the war and led to a Confederate victory.--From publisher description

Once too often in the War Between the States, Great Britain's support for the Confederacy takes it to the brink of war with the Union.

When the U.S. Navy seizes it in British waters, the ensuing battle spirals into all-out war. Napoleon III eagerly joins the British and declares war on the United States. Meanwhile, treason uncoils in the North as the anti-war Democrats, known as Copperheads, plot to overthrow the U.S. government and take the Midwest into the Confederacy

Disaster at D-Day : the Germans defeat the Allies, June 1944 by Peter Tsouras( Book )

33 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"June 1944: the Allies have prepared the largest forces ever gathered for the massive, decisive invasion of Europe. Facing them on the coast of France is the might of the German Wehrmacht ... The question of 'what might have been' has fascinated authors as diverse as Saki and Len Deighton, dealing with the fictional after-effects of great battles. Disaster at D-Day, firmly based on fact is a brilliant study of how a campaign could lead to unexpected results. Peter Tsouras introduces minor alterations at the start of the operation -- the slight repositioning of a unit, the unlooked-for presence of a commander -- and examines their effects as they gather momentum and impact upon all subsequent events"--Jacket
Gettysburg : an alternate history by Peter Tsouras( )

10 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone with an interest in America's greatest battle comes up against its controversies. What if J.E.B. Stuart had arrived on the battlefield before the second day? What if Ewell had pressed hard on the heels of the Union rout on the first day? What if Pickett's charge had been stronger and better led? What if the Army of the Potomac had been commanded by a more aggressive counter-attacker than Meade? 'Gettysburg' presents some of these possibilities as though they were the reality, and explores the impact they would have on the battle and on the course of the war. The alternate events are anchored firmly in the context of the actual events, and are all within the scope of what was genuinely possible." -- Back cover

7 editions published between 2004 and 2016 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On 16 December 1944, Hitler launched a massive surprise attack on the Allies. The Battle of the Bulge had begun. Had Hitler's gambit succeeded, a German victory in the war would have certainly been possible, if not likely. Battle of the Bulge: Hitler's Alternate Scenarios explores this idea, revealing exactly how history could have been dramatically altered. What if the Germans successfully prevented Patton from riding to the rescue at Bastogne? Or if the Allies had suffered a major setback at the Battle of the Bulge which allowed the Red Army to overrun Berlin and drive on to the Rhine? What if Hitler had progressed with the operations plan they had prior to the Bulge? These are
