Best books about Allied soldiers?

I like anything by Ambrose. "Another river, another town" is an excellent choice. "Footsoldier" is also very good, sorry, but the authors names escape me.

Back to how the Germans win the war. Had Kirk and Spock allowed Joan Collins to live instead of die in that car accident, Germany would have completed all their "Hard Water" experiments and developed the A-bomb first! Ouch!!! Dr. Strangelove, Baby!

Herr Doktor: Your points are well taken, My point once again is not so much what the Germany of today "needs", but what the Germany in 1939 wanted.

What if Germany waited to invade Poland...

And smashed into Russia, Even as Ribbentrop was negotiating with Molotov concerning the non-aggression pact! None of the Western allies cared about Russia, America hates communism, England flatly refused Stalin's treaty advances, That is the only reason a German-Russian pact came to exist anyway. Ta...
