I loved the book, but I am looking for the sequel! Is there one, and if not why not? I would really be disappointment in Mr.Gingrich-that he would just leave us hanging.

A different point of view on what could have happen in Europe. If you enjoy the Gingrich/Fortchen books then do read this early work by them. I just wish they would revist this idea and write the sequel(s) that are needed.

Wonderful book, I was really hooked, then I read "to be continued" and apparently no sequel has been released.... I am really disappointed. Still worth the read though, just prepare to be unhappy.

I truly enjoyed the book it was factual in its presentations of actual historical figures and made the fictional seem to truly exist. But I am saddened that no sequeal is yet released even though the ending states ' to be continued ' I have been waiting nearly a decade for its continuance

Clearly an understandable work of fiction based on facts found out after WW2. Well written and exciting. Fast moving and emotional. A must read for history buffs.

I loved this book. I am a great fan of WWII books and its history. So this book just drew me in. I think the authors did a great job in predicting a war without the U.S. and was thoroughly satisfied with the technology and the situation in 1946. The only part i did not like was how they created that think tank that will win the war. I thought it a bit farfetched and personally thought that being able to strap that RATO device to something of the order of 10000 planes is pretty crazy. It seems to me the authors are going to have good old American ingenuity to throw together something to beat the Nazi war machine. I think they could come up with something a little better but other than that a fantastic read that i could not put down

This was the first book that really turned me into the realm of alternative history. At first i thought the book was a history since the authors included Forchester. Other than Turtledove's Guns of the South and Heller's Catch-22 i cant find any other books that drew me in so much.

Gingrich and Forstchen do any amiable job in fabricating this world, but I can't help but feel as though the authors wanted to give it something more, but settled for a romance novel. World War II scenarios have been almost as popular in this sub-genre as the Civil War, but I don't believe anyone has come close to matching Fatherland, unless you count an alien invasion by Turtledove. Personally, I'm waiting for the follow-up.
