The History Files #80: World War 2 Ends

23 mins - Published Thu, Dec 15, 2016 by Gordon Frye and Nancy Frye

Alt history is a great way to analyze the past and take a long look at how we arrived at where we are now. Many historians and fiction writers have speculated about what the world would be like if World War 2 had ended differently. In celebration of season two of The Man in the High Castle, we take a look at the end of WW2 and talk about what happened versus what might have happened.
