      Hitler's War is a hoot.

      I bought a copy at a flea market book stand... ....geez - maybe some time back in the early '90s, before I knew who or what David Irving was. Even then, it seemed a weird take on the war years.

      You might be better off with this version of the same title:

      Hitler's War (Del Rey, 2009) is an alternate history novel by Harry Turtledove. It is the first volume in a series depicting an alternate World War II. The Point of Divergence has José Sanjurjo surviving a plane crash in 1936. Subsequently, during the Munich Conference in 1938, Konrad Henlein, a political leader of Sudetenland Germans is assassinated. Hitler uses this act as a pretext for war with Czechoslovakia, knowing that the Spanish Nationalists will side with him. Britain, France, and the Soviet Union declare war on Germany. Poland, despite previous ties with France, sides with Germany against the USSR. Further, Japan, which has been expanding into the Asian mainland, begins skirmishes with the USSR in Mongolia. The United States is on the sidelines, although it has troops in China, and volunteers participate in the Spanish Civil War.
