Обложка книги Beating Plowshares Into Swords: An Alternate History of the Vietnam War Beating Plowshares Into Swords: An Alternate History of the Vietnam War

 Автор: Schaefer F C


It is January of 1965 and without warning the North Vietnamese launch their Tet Offensive against the South, routing the American supported army and rolling over territory without a fight. In a matter of days it appears as if the Communists are about to score their biggest victory in the Cold War since Stalin’s armies rolled over Eastern Europe at the end of World War II, while the West is on the verge of an unprecedented defeat. In Washington, President Lyndon B. Johnson cleans house at the Pentagon and reaches across the political divide to a man who has built a career out of being tough on the Reds: former Vice President M. Richard Nixon, a man in the wilderness of politics after a career ending defeat. With Nixon as Secretary of Defense, the United States sends more than a million men to South Vietnam and proceeds to bomb the North back to the Stone Age, but it is not enough, as the North Vietnamese refuse to give up and beg for terms of peace. Is it time to think about the unthinkable? Told in the form of an oral history by the men and women who fought, protested and profited from the Vietnam War, Beating Plowshares into Swords is a look at the history that never was, but might have been, and a very different 1960’s than the one we remember.


For years I’ve heard historians and armchair warriors claim that America fought the war in Vietnam with our hands tied behind our backs; that we really could have won if only North Vietnam had been bombed into to a waste land; if only the Ho Chi Minh Trail had been cut; if only a million more men had been sent in country; if only we had wanted to win. In this short novel, I attempt to construct a scenario where the United States military put the hammer down on the North Vietnamese and what the consequences of such a policy would have been for America, Indochina and the wider world. At the same time I constructed different fates for such historical personages as LBJ and Nixon, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, as seen thought the eyes of fictional characters: a young man fighting in the jungles of Southeast Asia, a General working in the halls of the Pentagon and the Oval Office, and an idealistic school teacher marching in the streets of America’s cities. History is a great Leviathan, driven by ego and ambition, fear and avarice, ignorance and insight, brute instinct and sheer brilliance, and most of all by forces far beyond the control of any one person no matter how much power they possess. It is full of fascinating What Ifs and Beating Plowshares into Swords is but one of them.

An airborne operation of German, American, and British paratroopers drop on Berlin in this exciting new episode in the WW2 zombie series, THE FRONT!

 Серия: Milkweed Triptych


Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of the Second World War, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him. When the Nazis start running missions with people who have unnatural abilities—a woman who can turn invisible, a man who can walk through walls, and the woman Marsh saw in Spain who can use her knowledge of the future to twist the present—Marsh is the man who has to face them. He rallies the secret warlocks of Britain to hold the impending invasion at bay. But magic always exacts a price. Eventually, the sacrifice necessary to defeat the enemy will be as terrible as outright loss would be.

 Серия: The Zone


THE ZONE 2 • BLIND FIRE

A Russian armoured column has hurled across the Zone and is heading for Frankfurt, a soft target. Major Revells’ men are ordered to stop it. But they intend to destroy it down to the last tank, no matter what destruction and mayhem is necessary.

SYNOPSIS

Seemingly out of nowhere a powerful Russian armoured column has launched itself towards Frankfurt, crushing and thrusting aside any opposition. The city is unprotected, highly vulnerable and the only NATO force that can move to protect it is Major Revells’ tank hunter Special Combat Force. Ordered to halt the enemy, Major Revells’ men decide that half measures will not do, they have to utterly destroy the tanks and armoured personnel carriers. Employing only hand held weapons, time after time they ambush the Russian armour, blasting it apart at close range with anti-tank rockets and cannon fire until in the outskirts of the city both sides engage in a spectacular battle to the death.

 Серия: SF Masterworks


Trapped in 1877, a historian writes an account of an alternate history of America in which the South won the Civil War. Living in this alternate timeline, he was determined to change events at Gettysburg. When he's offered the chance to return to that fateful turning point his actions change history as he knows it, leaving him in an all too familiar past.

From the Inside Flap

“[WARD MOORE IS] ONE OF THE BEST AMERICAN WRITERS.”

—Ray Bradbury

The United States never recovered from The War for Southern Independence. While the neighboring Confederacy enjoyed the prosperity of the victor, the U.S. struggled through poverty, violence, and a nationwide depression.

The Industrial Revolution never occurred here, and so, well into the 1950s, the nation remained one of horse-drawn wagons, gaslight, highwaymen, and secret armies. This was home for Hodgins McCormick Backmaker, whose sole desire was the pursuit of knowledge. This, he felt, would spirit him away from the squalor and violence.

Disastrously, Hodgins became embroiled in the clandestine schemes of the outlaw Grand Army, from which he fled in search of a haven. But he was to discover that no place could fully protect him from the world and its dangerous realities….

“The Civil War has been often rethought, most effectively in Ward Moore's Bring the Jubilee.”

—Donald E. Westlake, The New York Times

#42 in the Millennium SF Masterworks series, a library of the finest science fiction ever written.

‘Seminal… concise and elegiac.’

Encylopedia of Science Fiction

‘A classic alternative world story.’

‘One of the best American writers.’
