1942 is an alternate history novel written by Robert Conroy. It was first published, as an e- book, by Ballantine Books on February 24, 2009, with a hardcover edition following from the same publisher in March 2009.[1] In 2010, the novel won the Sidewise Award for Alternate History.[2]


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, which is far more successful than in reality, as well as the ensuing struggle by the United States to regain the islands in 1942.
