The Manstein Alternative: Part 1: The Great War - Part 2: Prelude - The Spanish Civil War
By: Joe Avinger
About the Book
Erich von Manstein had always felt he was destined for great things on the battlefield. A Russian's bullets had other ideas and now the Great War was passing him by. While rehabilitating from his wounds, a chance encounter with Erich Ludendorff, second in command of Germany's armies, set him on a different path. One that would change the world.
The German Empire has survived the Great War, but will Manstein be able to guide it forward? France and Italy have created a new Entente and Charles de Gaulle and Benito Mussolini want revenge.
