History Revisited collects seven of the top stories in the alternate military history genre—stories by writers Harry Turtledove, Kim Stanley Robinson, John Mina, William Saunders, Michael F. Flynn and editor Mike Resnick—and submits them to scrutiny by seven eminent historians to discover just how probable the events they describe really are.

Could our atomic bomb policy really have been changed by one faulty screw? What if Napoleon had become emperor of the United States, leading such heroes as Crockett and Houston in the Battle of New Orleans? Would Admiral Nelson’s defection to France really have altered the course of the Napoleonic wars? Would President Lincoln’s assassination during the Gettysburg Address have left the states of the Confederacy as a separate country?

From one end of the historical spectrum to the other, History Revisited looks at what didn’t happen in military history to gain a richer understanding of what did.
