Ever since I first read about the Fashoda Incident I have always wondered what a Anglo-French War at the turn of the Century would have looked like. I know Osprey has delved into Myths & Legends and Dark Osprey, but would there be a market for real life “What Ifs ?”. I was also thinking that it may find a tie in with the gaming community. A series very much like Osprey Campaign, for instance “The Fashoda Incident: The Anglo -French War of 1898-99” It would give the historical background, the opposing Armed Forces, Commanders etc. Then we could go with a chapter on how a war might have actually played out. I was also thinking of other possibilities such as: Plan 1919 Operation Prone 1989 (Cuban Invasion of SWA and SADF response) Operation Felix 1941 Any thoughts ?

Not a bad idea at all, Louie. I'd certainly buy a book based around Fashoda.

I'd suggest:  "The Trent Incident 1861" with an Anglo-French intervention in the American Civil War and "The Fall of Warsaw 1920" where the defeat of the Poles leads to a Red Army invasion of Europe.

Something I've always wanted to do but we've never quite got there. Maybe next time...

Its kinda been tried before in elite 26 tank central front NATO v Warsaw pact and bolt action op sealion, both of which are good. As long as it didn't affect the output of historical books, I'd be interested.
