    " I found this book to jump around too much for my taste. This is the first of Turtledove's books that I have read, but I felt so disconnected from all of the stories. "

    " On it goes. In Harry Turtledove's alternate world, some of the things that happened in Europe between the world wars happen in the United States and Confederate States instead; interesting to think about how people here would have felt and acted in those circumstances. "

    " The end of a trilogy that deals more with politics than war, which I find much more interesting. Characters that we've known for books are dying, replaced by their children who were newborns in previous titles. Turtledove's imagination is without limits. "

    " Great set up for the coming showdown between the USA and CSA. The one gripe is using the Holocaust as an entertainment component of the novel. "
