Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Robert Conroy has earned considerable critical acclaim and favorable comparisons to fellow speculative history maven Harry Turtledove.

In the days after the Allies’ landing at Normandy, Adolf Hitler is removed from his position atop the Third Reich, and SS chief Heinrich Himmler assumes control. Meanwhile, the Allies begin grappling with competing solutions for bringing the war to an end. But with a second wind - and a potentially devastating secret super-weapon - the German war machine is primed for a final assault.

    Story
    "Well Worth A Listen"

    Conroy begins his story with a lost and damaged American bomber struggling to get home and dumping it's bomb load over a military installation in East Prussia. This installation is the infamous "Wolfs Lair" and Adolf Hitler is removed from the board by this accident of war shortly after D-day. Himmler seizes power with the support of the German army and things begin to happen differently from the world we know.

    The story developments flow smoothly from this action and most of them seem to be logically consistent. The story is well crafted and the characters are believable and sympathetic. Conroy follows Harry Turtledoves recipe of telling the story from multiple character viewpoints. The recording was seamless and the narrator, Mr. L. J. Ganser, was highly professional.

    While I did have some trouble believing in a Russo-German ceasefire and a Nazi bomb these, rather far fetched, developments did not interfere with my enjoyment of the book. If you enjoy alternate history tales as I do I think you will find this one well worth a listen.

    "A nice one shot alternate history book."
    What did you love best about Himmler's War?

    Even though there were some plots Conroy could've gotten rid of to exspand on to other plots; the overall story made me want to listen to it even after getting to my next location.
