How different could the world have been, then and now, if lead-ups and events surrounding the Second World War had occurred vastly differently? What if different alliances had been formed through dramatic circumstances and, subsequently, the tyrants had been unable to wield their evil powers?

In the latter half of the 1930s, Russia and Germany are going through the motions of getting on well with each other until a series of “events” occur. A spectacular explosion kills many fascists including Hitler and the Russians decide to seize the moment and invade. Britain and France declare war on Russia and become allied to a Germany under new leadership. There are more shocks when Stalin disappears just when the Russians seem on the brink of success.

Germany, however, has a great deal of support and there are great sea powers, especially Britain, who begin to demonstrate their vast reach. One of the smallest navies in existence also has a big say in subduing a mighty power.

Although he passed up on an RMA Sandhurst education, he has always been a keen student of military history. He enjoyed his National Service during the 1950s, serving in Berlin, Spandau and latterly Hong Kong. He later completed studies at the London Royal Academy of Music and Drama. As a human resources manager in the UK for a Canadian company, he was transferred to Melbourne from whence he covered most corners of the world as a performance appraisal/interpersonal skills trainer. He is a highly motivated member of a local community in Sorrento, Victoria. He has lived the greater part of his life “Down Under” with wife, Jane, and three sons.
