Overview

Only days after Normandy, Hitler is taken out of the equation and Heinrich Himmler, brutal head of the SS, assumes control of the Reich. On the Allied side, there is confusion. Should attempts be made to negotiate with the new government or should unconditional surrender still be the only option? With the specter of a German super-weapon moving closer to completion and the German generals finally allowed to fight the kind of war at which they are masters, the allies are pushed toward a course of accommodation or even defeat.

Will the soldiers of the Grand Alliance find the courage and conviction to fight on in the face of such daunting odds? And can alliance leaders put into place a new plan in time to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by the German war machine? A new and terrible battle for a free world is on.

Conroy is superb! Another "what if" based on well researched history. I loved the irony of the first chapter, and the continuous action thereafter. Conroy creates a complex cast of characters, both real and imagined, engaging and exciting to follow. The genre of alternative history when done well stimulates the reader's thinking and prior knowledge. But best of all, Conroy's storytelling skills are addictive. A great read for history buffs, from both miltary and social aspects of the time period... or for those who simply enoy a good story!

Fast paced story telling, believable and empathetic characters some on the edges would have been interesting to explore more deeply but it did not affect the story. Interesting premise and strategies shown from beginning to end, some outcomes that others might disagree with , but that is the nature of alternative history stories. Great read overall.
