This is a really good "alternate history" type of science fiction book and I would recommend it to anybody who likes that genre.

Very good book. You definitely get the feeling that this could have happened. It comes to a logical conclusion yet you are still left wondering, "What would happen next". I do wish this was the first in a series. I would love to read more.

I am a big fan of alternate histories, and the concept here is a good one, if a little more far-fetched than most in the genre. The execution of the story leaves a bit to be desired and I found the author's characterizations weak.

This is an interesting and readable alternative history about Germany going to war against the United States in 1901. Conroy combines fictional characters with actual historic characters from different eras. For example, we see World War II Admiral Bill Halsey as a young ensign and Confederate General James Longstreet as an old man called from retirement to be in charge of the Army. A friend of mine knows the author of this book and said his style was inspired by Tom Clancy. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes military-oriented historical fiction.

I have always been dissapointed when I read alternative history novels, but I never read this book before. I read it in one weekend. I couldn't put it down. Robert Conroy tells an intersting "what if" story that is both logical and suspenseful. I recommend this book to anyone who likes action and historical fiction. Personally, I have now added all of his other books to my wish list.

Fast-paced, interesting concept. Both my husband and I really enjoyed the story. A real page turner!
