Dilorenzo is one of the very few who writes from facts rather than what they wish it were.

OTOH - Alternative History is a form of fiction writing. My wife and I had one of our worst rows over an assignment she completed in her soph year. Her story considered the outcome if the Confederacy had won the war. Her conclusion was that it would end up communist. Neither of us won that 'discussion'.
