Praise for The Bomb That Never Was

 “Hitler has the bomb, and it's headed for the USA. This meticulously researched historical novel will have you asking, ‘What if?' This is an intelligent, fast-paced page-turner that will make you forget that you already know how it all turns out. Provocative, informative, and entertaining—I couldn't put it down.” —Joseph P. DeSario, author of Limbo and Sanctuary and coauthor of Crusade: Undercover Against the Mafia & KGB

“Authoritative and credible in its attention to detail, The Bomb That Never Was captures the spirit and temper of the WWII years and raises some deep philosophical questions about loyalty, treason, and commitment to country. A page-turner … tough to put down … a story well told.” —Robert L. Aaron, journalist and public relations executive

My Review

How many times have people mulled over WWII and the events that occurred. I admit, I am a late bloomer when it comes to history as it never interested me when I was younger. But, I have always had a fascination with the Nazis. In all reality, I can't wrap my head around what happened and how it went on for as long as it did. Thankfully Hitler was finally stopped, but this book examines what if things went differently. What if Hitler had a bomb and targeted the US? How would things have turned out?

The author has done a great job fleshing out the dynamics of this alternate future, and held my interest from the very beginning. I would recommend this book not only for history buffs, but for anyone looking for an intense read that asks the question...what if?
