Have you ever wondered about different “what if…” scenarios when thinking about history? What if Rome never fell? What if Constantine never created the Council of Nicea? What if Napoleon won at Waterloo? What if Hitler had developed the atomic bomb first?
World War 2 scenarios can be some of the most tantalizing. Just imagine how close we came to living in Philip K. Dick’s Man in the High Castle! Have you ever wondered exactly why Hitler failed? M. L. Winitsky is the guest for this episode and he certainly has taken that train of thought. He asked: “What if a valet altered the course of World War II?”
M. L. Winitsky has a creative imagination. As a former university professor, historian, consultant, and researcher for television, his life-long, academically informed fascination with alternate history led to writing A Fly on the Wall. This book is the first in his three-volume magical realism epic.
