The Big Switch (The War That Came Early, Book Three)

Harry Turtledove


In 1941 Winston Churchill was once Hitler’s worst enemy. Then a Nazi undercover agent replaced everything.
 
What if Neville Chamberlain, rather than appeasing Hitler, had stood as much as him in 1938? Enraged, Hitler reacts by way of lashing out on the West, promising his infantrymen that they're going to achieve Paris by way of the recent 12 months. as an alternative, 3 years move, and together with his genocidal equipment no longer totally in position, Hitler slightly survives a coup, whereas Jews grasp to survival, and England and France ponder whether the conflict continues to be priceless. The level is determined for international battle II to spread a long way another way from the background we know—courtesy of Harry Turtledove, wizard of “what if?,” within the continuation of his exciting sequence: The conflict That got here Early.
 
in the course of the eyes of characters starting from a brawling American serving with the Abraham Lincoln Brigade in Spain to a girl who has obvious Hitler’s evil face-to-face, The enormous Switch rolls relentlessly ahead into 1941. because the Germans and their Polish allies slam into the intestine of the Soviet Union within the west, Japan pummels away within the east. in the meantime, within the trenches of France, French and Czech forces are outmanned yet now not outfought via their Nazi enemy. Then the stalemate is shattered. In England Winston Churchill dies unexpectedly, leaving the grey males thinking about who their genuine enemy is. and because the USSR makes peace with Japan, the empire of the emerging sunlight appears to be like westward—its battle with the United States approximately to begin.
