Harry Turtledove, the master of alternate history, crafts arresting novels based on hypothetical scenarios and featuring iconic figures from the past. A generation after the South wins the Civil War, it annexes critical territory in Mexico. Outraged, the United States declares total war. This time the American army faces danger on all sides—Confederates, outlaws, Apaches, French, and even the British. George Custer and Teddy Roosevelt fight hard and give the Americans hope. But to win, they need a commander as brilliant as Stonewall Jackson, and they must stop Jeb Stuart’s glorious cavalry. Riveting what-if situations make this a unique, intriguing book. Expert narrator George Guidall creates distinct personalities for the numerous characters, including socialist lecturer Abraham Lincoln, Confederate President James Longstreet, and antiwar journalist Samuel Clemens.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Cliff Marsh | 1/21/2014

    " Better than I expected. Wasn't really thinking that Alternative History would be my thing, but I really got into this. "

    " Shame on me for thinking there isn't any worthwhile fiction out there. This novel is great because it combines the study of history with imagination. Turtledove does a great job fleshing out historical figures and turning them into compelling literary characters. More importantly, however, he makes the reader think about cause and effect and the various elements at play that can be huge one way or barely a blip on the radar another way. The Emancipation Proclamation is an example of how this happens in the novel. "

    " I just had to start reading the Southern Victory series again. I couldn't help myself. "

    " Awful. Granted, I am not much of a Civil War Reader, but the writing itself is even bad. Corny and hard to trudge through due to multiple similes (about every other sentence) and multiple dashes (about every other sentence), and goodness knows Turtledove leaves absolutely nothing for the reader to figure out on his or her own. Ugh. "
