A kingdom Sundered - a global Engulfed is the 1st quantity of a three-part paintings, Democracy's lacking Arsenal. DMA explores a global within which a accomplice victory within the Civil conflict has devastating results on overseas and nice strength kinfolk over the following century. this isn't a singular; relatively, it's an alternate background of an international within which there is not any united usa to function FDR's "Arsenal of Democracy." it's a nightmare global -- one the place slavery is neither stamped out nor fades away, and the place the USA can't interfere decisively at the Western entrance since it is enmeshed at the Potomac entrance. quantity One starts in September 1862 no longer with the stalemate of the military of Northern Virginia at Antietam, yet with the cave in of the military of the Potomac a couple of ranking miles north: at Gettysburg. This victory, denied to Lee in our international in basic terms through happenstance, activates the shelving of the Emancipation Proclamation in addition to Anglo-French diplomatic intervention. the remainder is, good, trade background, resulting in the realization of quantity One on the negotiated finish of the 1st global battle -- in 1900.

The results of virtually twenty years of study, research, and on-the-ground battlefield treks, DMA paints a practical photo of what could have been, with a spotlight a ways diversified from different entries within the burgeoning "alternative background" style. Northern defeat could have echoed in Bolivia and Brazil, in Persia and the Phillippines, within the debates on Irish domestic Rule and within the crafting of the nature of the redoubtable Georges Clemenceau.

The overriding subject matter of DMA is that exact activities do topic, that historical past isn't really crafted exclusively by means of impersonal forces, and that not anything is actually inevitable. it's going to sound a clarion demand modern-day international - an markedly imperfect global, to be certain, yet person who has no less than shunned the deadly absence of Democracy's lacking Arsenal.
