Description - Visions of Victory by Gerhard L. Weinberg

Visions of Victory explores the views of eight war leaders of the major powers of World War II - Hitler, Mussolini, Tojo, Chiang Kai-shek, Stalin, Churchill, de Gaulle, and Roosevelt - and compares their visions of the future. Astonishing in its synthesis and scope, Weinberg's comparison of the individual portraits of the war-time leaders is a highly-original and compelling study of history that might have been. What emerges is a startling picture of postwar worlds: besides the extermination of the Jews, Hitler intended Germans to inhabit all of Eastern Europe. Both Mussolini and Hitler intended to have extensive colonies in Africa. Churchill hoped to see the re-emergence of the British and French empires. De Gaulle wanted to annex the northwest corner of Italy. Stalin wanted to and achieved control of Eastern Europe. Roosevelt's vision of the future was the closest to being fulfilled, including, the establishment of the United Nations.
