What if Britain had fallen in WWII? British soldier/diplomat Harry Lloyd fights to free his homeland
.

Harry Lloyd teams with characters right out of the history books to undermine the Nazis who now control his British homeland.

Together with an ex-bodyguard named George, Harry goes undercover to steal the Enigma code machine for the Americans before the Germans discover it's existence. Along the way he rescues Churchill and fights off Nazi thugs set on stopping him.

WWII was won by the allies with overwhelming industrial power,courageous soldiers and a lot of luck. This story tells us what happens if luck had differed from that which the allies enjoyed during the war years.

Excerpt
Hopkins turned to face Harry as he said: “ We have very good reason to believe that you folks have improved on the Polish decoding techniques of
the German Enigma ciphering machine. The intelligence derived from this is of the highest priority. It could greatly assist in countering Hitler’s moves. Unfortunately, under your current situation, you cannot take advantage of it. If Churchill is ousted, we need you to get that intelligence
before the Germans realize you have it and take it from you.”

“What the hell is an Enigma machine?” a confused Harry asked.....

Desperate Times: World War II Alternative History By Lynda Ochsner
Great dialogue and action adventure keeps the story moving. A simple adventure, Desperate Times features no subplots, romantic or otherwise. Women characters are few and in minor roles, and none of the characters have romantic interests. For a short novel (Desperate Times is only 160 pages) this is fine; the single-plot story would likely have been expanded to include subplots for a standard-length novel (about 300 pages or more). Historical figures enter into the action, with great dialog and involvement from many World War II names, including Mosley, Churchill, Hitler, President Roosevelt, (then-colonel) Eisenhower, Eden, and Halifax.
