Tournai, Philippe. L'empire des Gaules
Title trans.: Empire of the Gauls
Divergence: 52 BCE
What if: Vercingetorix rather than Julius Caesar was the victor at Alesia.
Summary: An apparent historical novel that in its final chapters becomes allohistorical, describing Vercingetorix's victory, proclamation as emperor of Gaul, and subsequent conquest of Rome itself.
Comments: In the introduction Tournai announced his intention to write four other allohistorical novels derived from events in French history, but apparently none were ever published.
Published: Pensée Universelle 1973.
Original in: French.
