North Reich

North Reich

A novel by

American military forces are focused on fighting Japan after Pearl Harbor. Hitler's army has taken Stalingrad, defeated opposing countries in Western Europe, England has surrendered, and German troops, including the terrifying Gestapo, now control Canada, with a puppet government in Ottawa.

Many historians consider Hitler's greatest blunder was declaring war on the United States in 1941. Award-winning author Robert Conroy presents an exciting alternate history scenario, where Hitler did not declare war on the U.S. and American armed forces stayed out of the European conflict, focusing its military might on the Pacific.

In NORTH REICH, border skirmishes with Nazi-occupied Canada and saboteur efforts within U.S. escalate into a Nazi invasion. This novel presents a moving picture of Nazi-occupied Canada, what the U.S. response might have been, and how warfare on American soil could have played out.

"Robert Conroy is truly one of the top players in the field when it comes to imaginative well written tales. Be ready for some sleepless nights when you argue with yourself "I'll just read one more chapter," because Conroy's work is the type of book you simply can't put down."
- William R. Forstchen, author of NYTimes bestseller ONE SECOND AFTER and co-author of YORKTOWN and GETTYSBURG

"Historical accuracy in the midst of creative speculation makes this piece of alternate history believable. It should appeal to fans of Harry Turtledove."
- Library Journal

"An ensemble cast of fictional characters ... and historical figures powers the meticulously researched story line with diverse accounts of the horrors of war, making this an appealing read for fans of history and alternate history alike."
- Publishers Weekly

*Starred Review* "Conroy's latest novel is substantially his best. It supposes that in 1945, President Truman decided to send American troops across the Elbe to claim the American share of Berlin. That catches Stalin in a paranoiac mood, and the Red Army attacks the force headed to Berlin... Add the prospective disintegration of the Western Alliance over the prolongation of the war ... and J. Edgar Hoover displaying a paranoia that rivals Stalin's, and every aspect of the scenario becomes engrossing and grimly plausible. Even the book's two well-realized romances add interest to the proceedings, and the suspense holds up literally to the last page. If Conroy's enthusiasm for alternate history leads to a sequel to this one, it will continue a story comparable to the best by the subgenre's masters."
- Booklist

on 1945:
"Conroy explores the carnage of war through numerous viewpoints (a naive American soldier, an escaped POW, a Japanese-American operative, the deposed emperor, etc.) with moving and thought-provoking results."
- Publishers Weekly

on 1942:
"A high-explosive what-if, with full-blooded characters."
- John Birmingham, author of WITHOUT WARNING

"Fans of Tom Clancy and Agent Jack Bauer should find a lot to like here."
- Publishers Weekly

"A significant writer of alternate history turns here to the popular topic of Pearl Harbor, producing what is arguably his best book."
- Booklist

on 1901:
"The yarn is likely to please both military history and alternative history buffs."
- Booklist

"This cleverly conceived alternative history proposes that Kaiser Wilhelm II launches an invasion of the U.S in 1901 after President McKinley summarily rejects a demand that he surrender Cuba and the Philippines to the Germans ... Conroy tells a solid what-if historical."
- Publishers Weekly
