Alternative history requires the deep knowledge of a subject if the author is to retain credibility in leading the reader along the border between fact and fiction. As he demonstrated in his best-selling non-fiction account of "The Final Invasion", Col. David Fitz-Enz possesses just such expertise on the War of 1812.
