With hindsight, the victory of Parliamentarian forces over the Royalists in the English Civil War may seem inevitable but this outcome was not a foregone conclusion. Timothy Venning explores many of the turning points and discusses how they might so easily have played out differently. ?What if, for example, Charles I had capitalized on his victory at Edgehill by attacking London without delay? Could this have ended the war in 1642? His actual advance on the capital in 1643 failed but came close to causing a Parliamentarian collapse Ð how could it have succeeded and what then? Among the many other scenarios, full consideration is given to the role of Ireland (what if Papal meddling had not prevented Irish Catholics aiding Charles?) and Scotland (how might Montrose's Scottish loyalists have neutralized the Covenanters?). The author analyses the plausible possibilities in each thread, throwing light on the role of chance and underlying factors in the real outcome, as well as what might easily have been different.

The Civil War comes alive in all its passion and fury–only now the Brits are fighting . . . alongside the Confederacy Outraged when the U.S. Navy seizes three Confederates aboard an English sailing ship, Britain retaliates by entering the fray in support of the Rebels–and suddenly it’s a whole new war. Once again, cotton is king as the North’s blockade crumbles before the might of the Royal Navy. While Lincoln confronts the monumental challenge of vanquishing mighty Britannia, the Redcoats revive their 1812 penchant for burning down American cities, and Union troops see Canada as ripe for the picking. From the Mississippi bayou to the Pennsylvania farmlands to the woods of Maine, the great armies of Generals Grant and Lee face off in the nation’s deadliest conflict. And to the victor goes history. From the Paperback edition.

Das Buch erzählt die Lebensgeschichte der Schwestern Meg, Jo, Beth und Amy, die gemeinsam mit ihren Eltern in Neuengland aufwachsen. Die kluge, jungenhafte Josephine, die hübsche und fügsame Meg, die selbstlose und friedliche Beth und das Nesthäkchen, die egoistische Amy, werden von ihren kindlichen Luftschlössern bis hin zur Frauwerdung begleitet. Marmee, Mutter der vier kleinen Frauen, wacht aufmerksam über die Entwicklung und den Umgang ihrer Kinder. Der Vater ist im Krieg. Meg, die im Vergleich zu ihren Schwestern den größten Wert auf die Einhaltung bestehender Konventionen legt, heiratet schon früh. Mit John Brooke, dem Hauslehrer des jungen Nachbarn und Freundes Laurie, gründet sie eine Familie, die bald um die beiden Kinder John, Jr. "Demi" und Margreth "Daisy" erweitert wird. Später kommt noch Josephine "Josy" dazu, die in Little Men erwähnt wird. Beth, die ihr Leben ihrer Familie widmet und aufopferungsvoll im Haushalt und bei kranken und armen Nachbarn arbeitet, ist selbstlos bis in den Tod. Bei der uneigennützigen Versorgung einer armen Nachbarsfamilie steckt sie sich mit Scharlach an. Wenn sie sich auch vorübergehend von der Krankheit erholt, ist diese ausschlaggebend für Beths frühen Tod. Amy, das Nesthäkchen der Familie, möchte alles und bekommt es nicht immer. Sie sieht sich als Künstlerin, kann als Gesellschafterin mit einer Tante nach Europa reisen und sich dort künstlerisch weiterbilden. Sie heiratet Laurie, den wohlhabenden Nachbarsjungen ihrer Familie, den langjährigen Seelenbruder ihrer Schwester Jo, kehrt gemeinsam mit ihm nach Amerika zurück und bekommt eine Tochter. Jo möchte im Gegensatz zu Amy viel, bekommt aber weniger. Sie wünscht sich unter anderem finanzielle und individuelle Unabhängigkeit, Ruhm und Anerkennung als Schriftstellerin sowie eine Reise nach Europa. Die ersehnte Reise wird nicht von ihr, sondern von Amy angetreten.

Excerpt: After their success in the Second Global War, Britain had won a major victory, but also had serious war debts to pay. They turned to the Byzantines, who could not help as they themselves had large debts to handle, so payment was denied. The Byzantines had to keep their economy steady as to keep their new overseas territories, and to supply their territories with troops. The Byzantines now showed more support for the reconstructed France than Britain, mainly to help reestablish good relations and support a returned ally. What became known as the Diplomatic Revolution, a new France and Spain became allied to the Byzantines, while Britain, who left the Byzantium Pact in 1769, established good relations with many of the states in Germany, and with Russia, which was increasingly becoming antagonistic to the Byzantines. The Byzantium Pact now consisted mainly of the Byzantine Empire, France, Spain, Prussia, Sweden, and Poland in Europe, against the British alliance of Britain, Austria, Hanover, Hesse, Denmark, the Dutch Republic, and Portugal. Meanwhile, in America, colonists were subjected to increasingly harsh taxes, eventually leading many colonists to feel ...
