    Great, but complex

    I'm a huge fan of Turtledove's writing. That being said, you need to know what you're getting into. There are dozens of characters, each with their own independent plotlines to keep track of, not to mention the actions of the various nations in the book as well. You really do need to pay attention or its easy to become confused at whats going on, especially at the beginning of the book.

    If you can manage to follow all the different storylines though, then you're in for an amazing read.

    I do have some criticism of the ebook itself though. Random typos litter the book and there appeared to be at least one page that just would not load for me. Still, they don't really hinder the ability to enjoy the novel.

    A great book for those who want to give Turtledove's writing style a try, but who aren't history buffs, although a knowledge of WW1/2 makes it all the better.

    A 1st Class Parody of WWII

    I have just finished this book and I am still awed at the grand scale at which he writes, not just focusing on one or two characters, but encompassing families and relationships throughout the war. My rating is well-deserved, as Turtledove obviously put an extraordinary amount of work into this saga.

    Extremely well detailed, quite gripping.

    I found Harry Turtledove's description absolutely fascinating as well as his ability to depict a story, involving many different charecters, from their individual pionts of veiw.

    GREAT READ!!!

    Harry Turtledove's charachters are real, this and the fact that he has a great talent for battle scenes make this book one of the best I have ever read along with The Guns Of The South.
