Publisher's Summary

In 1914, they called it The Great War, and few could imagine anything worse. For nearly three decades, a peace forged in blood and fatigue has held sway in North America. Now, Japan dominates the Pacific, the Russian Tsar rules Alaska, and England, under Winston Churchill, chafes for a return to its former glory. But behind the façade of world order, America is a bomb waiting to go off. Jake Featherston, the megalomaniacal leader of the Confederate States of America, is just the man to light the fuse.
In the White House in Philadelphia, Socialist President Al Smith is a living symbol of hope for a nation that has been through the fires of war and the flood tides of depression. In the South, Featherston and his ruling Freedom Party have put down a Negro rebellion with a bloody fist and have interned them in concentration camps. Now, they are determined to crush their Northern neighbor at any cost.

Great book bad narrator

Would you listen to Return Engagement again? Why?

I would, inspite of me feeling the narration wasn't very good.

What did you like best about this story?

Seeing old and new characters from Southern Victory back again.

What three words best describe Paul Costanzo’s voice?

Not that great.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The scenes of blacks being killed almost made me cry.

Any additional comments?

They should've stuck with George Guidall as narrator.
