The Napoleon Options
Alternate Decisions of the Napoleonic Wars
Edited by Jonathan North
This compelling alternate history, brilliantly written by ten leading international authors, presents the great "maybes" of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. The Napoleon Options focuses on some of the pivotal episodes of those catastrophic wars, gives them a historical twist and explores in detail an alternate sequence of historical events. Rooted firmly in reality, and projected from entirely factual events, these dramatic possibilities are played out as though they actually happened in vivid and dramatic narratives.
As the Napoleonic conflict had such an impact on the formation of the modern world, these captivating scenarios colourfully illustrate how alternate events might well have shaped a radically different world. They graphically illustrate the role of chance in history and demonstrate the far-reaching consequences of minor changes upon the surging course of events.
