Overview

A beautiful leatherbound edition of the book that started the Ring of Fire series: 1632! A multiple New York Times best-selling alternate history saga begins!

FREEDOM AND JUSTICE — AMERICAN STYLE

The Year1632, and in northern Germany things couldn't get much worse. Famine. Disease. Religous war laying waste the cities. Only the aristocrats remained relatively unscathed; for the peasants, death was a mercy.

The Year 2000, and things are going okay in Grantville, West Virginia. Half with the town is attending the wedding of Mike Stearn's sister, and everyone there (including the entire local chapter of the United Mine Workers of America, which Mike leads) is having a good time.

THEN, EVERYTHING CHANGED....

When the dust settles, Mike leads a group of armed miners to find out what happened and finds the road into town is cut, as with a sword. On the other side, a scene out of Hell: a man nailed to a farmhouse door, his wife and daughter attacked by men in steel vests. Faced with this, Mike and his friends don't have to ask who to shoot. At that moment freedom and justice, American style, are about to be introduced to the Thirty Years' War.
