What If...? Vol 3 - Abridged

The World's Foremost Military Historians Imagine What Might Have Been

What If...?: Book #3
By Robert Cowley & Robert Cowley
Narrated by Murphy Guyer / 4 hours 59 minutes

Historians and inquisitive laymen alike love to ponder the dramatic what-ifs of history. In these never-before-published essays, some of the keenest minds of our time ask the big, tantalizing questions: Where might we be if history had not unfolded the way it did? Why, how, and when was our fortune made real? The answers are surprising, sometimes frightening, and always entertaining.

This provocative collection of essays features today's foremost historians speculating on these "what ifs", providing a fascinating new perspective on history's most pivotal events. The essays include:

* Infectious Alternatives: The Plague that Saved Jerusalem

by William H. McNeil

* No Glory That Was Greece: The Persians Win at Salamis
