Baker & Taylor
An alternate history of the atomic bomb and MacArthur's invasion of Japan finds the Manhattan Project set back by production snafus and Roosevelt falling out of favor, circumstances that prompt General MacArthur to refocus on the war in Japan and pursue what he hopes will be his eventual rule over the U.S. 15,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave
In this alternate version of the WWII South Pacific campaign by the acclaimed authors of the Fox duology, MacArthur's war plans call for the invasion of Japan.

Just as Fox on the Rhine and Fox at the Front showed readers an alternate Europe in which Hitler had been killed, thereby radically changing the course of World War II, Douglas Niles and Michael Dobson bring us the Battle of Midway with a very different outcome.
The Allies are wildly out maneuvered and sent home in disgrace. Back in the States things are looking rather grim as the ultra-secret Manhattan Project runs into snafus that greatly delay the final production of the atomic bomb.
President Roosevelt’s approval ratings drop dramatically. Congress is desperate and the country cries out for a hero.

That hero might just be Douglas MacArthur, who vowed that he would return to his beloved Philippines. He plans to do so with the backing of the entire US Armed Forces.

MacArthur’s plan of action is simple: take the war back to the Japanese, island by bloody island, until standing on the shores of Japan, he can proclaim victory.
And possibly gain the leadership of the United States as well.

Fox on the Rhine and Fox at the Front showed readers an alternate Europe in which Hitler had been killed and the course of World War II radically altered. Now Douglas Niles and Michael Dobson give the Battle of Midway a very different and tragic outcome.
The Allies are wildly outmaneuvered and sent home in disgrace. Back in the States, things are looking grim as the ultrasecret Manhattan Project runs into snafus that greatly delay the production of the atomic bomb. President Roosevelt's approval ratings drop dramatically. Congress grows desperate - and the country cries out for a hero.
That hero might just be General Douglas MacArthur, who vowed that he would return to his beloved Philippines. He plans to do so with the backing of the entire U.S. Armed Forces. MacArthur's plan of action is simple: Bring the war back to the Japanese, island by bloody island, until, standing on the shores of Japan, he can proclaim victory. And possibly gain the leadership of the United States as well.
