He really puts the idea of US vs Germany in an invasion into such a realistic storyline. For anybody that likes a great action novel with twists

i was very impressed with the book. I love the what if concept in history. The book was also very educational for me it forced me to look up related information and i used in my global history class.

As a student of history, I often wonder about the what ifs and the impact of subsequent events on the world and local stage. In a well researched, but little studied historical situation regarding Kaiser Wilhelm's animosity toward the United States, Conroy reconstructs a German invasion upon the American continent. Germany being a fine tuned military power in Europe at the time, attacking the U.S., militarily rebounding from its Civil War, and widely scattered in the west fighting Indians. Conroy tells the story through fictional characters while utilizing actual historical figures who rally in the American spirit to overcome adversarial autocarats to defend democracy. Military figures who play pivotal roles in past and future battles in U.S. history flesh out the story line of this novel, and stimulates the reader's strategical thinking skills. The story is well told, but the concept of this novel allows us history buffs to test our knowledge about those little known 'what ifs'. Quite the creative concept!

The set up and historical figures are exciting, but the author fails when it comes to both story and realism.

The book is fast-paced and entertaining. The author blends a great macro war story while demonstrating the micro impact on the lives of selected characters. The tale includes major land battles, skirmishes, scalpings (yes, scalpings) naval engagements, politics, and economics while maintaining a brisk, energetic pace. If you're an armchair general you'll enjoy the strategy discussions among the American and German leaders as well as the colorful battle sequences.
