Publisher's Summary

"Somehow I doubt that this is quite how anyone expected Adolf Hitler's death to turn out...." - Squadron Leader Adam Haynes, No. 303 (Polish) Squadron
August 1942. London is in flames. Heinrich Himmler's Germany stands triumphant in the West, its "Most Dangerous Enemy" forced to the peace table by a hailstorm of nerve gas and incendiaries. With Adolf Hitler avenged and portions of the Royal Navy seized as war prizes, Nazi Germany casts its baleful gaze across the Atlantic toward an increasingly isolationist United States. With no casus belli, President Roosevelt must convince his fellow Americans that it is better to deal with a triumphant Germany now than to curse their children with the problem of a united, fascist Europe later.
As Germany and Japan prepare to launch the next phase of the conflict, Fate forces normal men and women to make hard choices in hopes of securing a better future. For Adam Haynes, Londonfall means he must continue an odyssey that began in the skies over Spain. American naval officer Eric Cobb finds that neutrality is a far cry from safety. Finally, Rear Admiral Tamon Yamaguchi must prepare himself and his men to fight a Pacific War that is far different than the surprise attack Imperial Japan had once planned but never executed.

I loved the new direction the war went

I love the fact that they went in a different direction with the war. I thought it was great they kept close to the facts but at least changing the outcome.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was OK but there were some minor problems


What other book might you compare Acts of War to and why?

I would buy the next one in the series but it is not on Audible


What didn’t you like about K. Caldwell’s performance?

He did not have the correct pronunciation of several words. For example: corpse man. Obama did it too, but it doesn't make it right. Also, Cavite, fuselage, and some others. He hurries through some action sequences so rapidly that they are hard to follow. There are several unexplained gaps in the recording.


Do you think Acts of War needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, because the story moves along.
