Summary

Harry Turtledove, Ph.D., critically acclaimed novelist and "Master of Alternative History," enriches his compelling narratives with authentic period details. In this enthralling epic begun by Sidewise Award winner How Few Remain and continued in Blood & Iron, the Great Depression devours the Roaring Twenties - leaving the USA and the CSA vulnerable. As the Socialist Party battles Coolidge to retain the presidency in 1924, it seems as if it can do no wrong. The stock market soars, and the USA prospers. Although victors in the War of Secession, the CSA still reels from its loss of the Great War while the Freedom Party promises new vigor and pride. But should these gray-shirted fascists seize power, they may prove dangerous. Sharing world supremacy with Germany and bloated with prosperity, the USA fails to notice ominous events inside the weakened CSA.

A wonderful and masterful book

Turtledove again has made an incredibly detailed interpretation of alternate history.

I will get what I dislike about the stories out of the way. Turtledove has the infuriating habit of over analyzing things. A small detail may come up that has little bearing on the story. And I cannot count how many times he has used the phrase “__ and __ were two different things” or something like that in this series.

That being said, Turtledove I have come to realize is playing the long game when it comes to book writing and if you have patience this is an extremely rewarding series. Little nods to historical facts can rise up and you realize he did it before many self described historians told you about it.
You don’t Love all characters in the series but there is enough for anyone to find one they like, and I found myself genuinely attached to some. Thoughtful reimagining of certain parts of history come up that are not wild to believe in this universe ( although some are doubtful I.E. the invention of tanks). But in the end turtle dove has created an immersive a complicated story and has done a great job and I am excited for the next one!
