Napoleon Victorious by Peter G. Tsouras

An Alternative History of the Battle of Waterloo

Published by Greenhill Books

I love reading and reviewing the work of Peter G. Tsouras, for his writing is as much about history as it is about alternative history. I would love to see him to an alternative history book on the Russian Civil War.

Previously Peter has written well-received alternative histories of Gettysburg, Stalingrad and D-Day, and remember, you have to really know the actual history to write alternative history.
