Alternate history by definition requires a certain amount of fictionalising. We cannot possibly know precisely what "might have been" but we can extrapolate from what we do know (or think we know!) about the past. Remember though, that we are constantly rediscovering, rethinking, reanalysing history. I will try to make very clear which material in my blog is documented history and which material is my own conjecture. If you read something that seems problematic (and you will!), PLEASE comment and tell me! I hope we all can learn from this experience.
