1942 is an alternate history novel written by Robert Conroy. It was first published as an e-book by Ballantine Books in February 2009, with a hardcover edition following from the same publisher in March of the same year.[1]


Departing from actual history, the novel depicts a fictitious Japanese invasion and conquest of Hawaii in late 1941, in the wake of an attack on Pearl Harbor far more successful than happened in reality, and the ensuing struggle by the United States to regain the islands in 1942.


In 2010, the novel won the Sidewise Award for Alternate History.[2]
