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.

The Center does not hold.

Would you listen to American Empire again? Why?

I would. Not sure why to be honest.

What did you like best about this story?

The overall storylines, and the way they were narrated.

What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His narration, especially with different accents and dialects is excellent.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Featherston is one of the characters I love to hate the way he treats people around him.
