Book Review: The Bomb That Never Was by J.R. Shaw

Title: The Bomb That Never Was Author: J.R. Shaw Publisher: iUniverse Genre: Alternative History Format: Ebook/Paperback

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

The Review:

What if? That is the question you will be asking yourself long after you finish The Bomb That Never Was by J.R. Shaw. What if Hitler had a bomb that was headed towards the US? What would be different today?

It is evident that a lot of research went in to the history that was going to be intricately woven into this tale of historical fiction. Even though the book is fiction, you need to make sure that you have the basis from real events, which it seems like the author did a great job of (I admit, I'm no expert when it comes to WWII). I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of what could have been if things had been different, and can't wait to see what the next tale tells.
