Macksey, Kenneth

Entry updated 12 August 2018. Tagged: Author.

(1923-2005) UK soldier 1941-1978, winner of a Military Cross during service in World War Two, military historian and author. Two of his many books are Hitler Wins texts, Invasion: The Alternate History of the German Invasion of England, July 1940 (1980) and The Hitler Options: Alternate Decisions of World War II (anth 1995), each of which posits an Alternate History in which Germany is victorious; neither is couched as fiction, and none of the contributors to the second volume are known as fiction authors. On the other hand, First Clash: Combat Close-Up in World War Three (1985), written for the Canadian Department of National Defense as a speculative scenario, conveys its World War Three drama in clearly fictional terms.
