By 1920, Kaiser Wilhelm II is looking for new lands to devour. The United States is fast becoming an economic super-power and the only nation that can conceivably threaten Germany. The U.S. is militarily inept, hosever, and is led by a sick and delusional president who wanted to avoid war at any price.

America desperately resists and as a second battle of the Alamo looms, only the indomitable spirit of freedom can answer the Kaiser's challenge"--

Liberty 1784 : the second war for independence by Robert Conroy( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
"A compelling alternate history novel by the breakout author of WW II era alternate history Himmler's War and Rising Sun. The British win the American Revolutionary War, and a desperate Washington and the American founders must make a last stand in an enclave called Liberty. In 1781, George Washington's attempt to trap the British under Cornwallis at Yorktown ends catastrophically when the French fleet is destroyed in the Battle of the Capes. The revolution collapses, and the British begin a bloody reign of terror. A group of rebels flees westward and sets up a colony near what is now Chicago. They call it Liberty. The British, looking to finish what they started, send a very large force under Burgoyne to destroy them. Burgoyne is desperate for redemption and the Americans are equally desperate to survive. Had the Battle of the Capes gone differently, a changed, darker, New World would have been forced into existence. But even under those dire circumstances, Liberty may still find a way!
