Anyone else tired of the alternative Nazis? I mean the Nazis who keep showing up in alternative history books? No offense to Harry Turtledove – you do you – but there’s SO much more to history than just WWII. History is full of tipping points, and it turns out that a lot of those points were tipped by the choice made by a woman.
Here’s the experiment: For 10 weeks, I look at 10 women and how making a single decision can lead to a completely different world. I don’t give the women any special powers, any skill, any asset or weakness that they didn’t really have. All they have to do is make a choice which was theirs to make – and we go down an entirely different leg in the Trousers of Time.
