Robert Conroy - 2012
From Conroy's introduction: North Reich tells what might have happened if Hitler had not so foolishly declared war on the United States. FDR certainly understood that Germany was the greatest threat, but might have been helpless to do anything about it. War between the United States and Germany was still considered inevitable, but not in December of 1941. North Reich is the story of the war that was going to come sooner or later. However, in this instance, the fighting takes place not in Europe but in North America.

The Radiant Warrior Omnibus
Leo Frankowski - 2004
Things went downhill from there, and he finally had to face the disheartening fact he had somehow been stranded in 1231 A.D. He would have been happier if he had known less history.

He needed the army most of all, because he knew that the Mongol hordes would attack in only ten years and destroy Medieval Poland-and that would really mess up Conrad's life.
