After carving a place for itself among the struggling powers of 17th-century Western Europe, the "out-of-time" modern town of Grantville, West Virginia, must fight for its life against Dark Age domination.
A cosmic accident sets the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia, down in war-torn 17th century Europe, and a new nation is forged. Now, when United States of Europe ally King Gustavas of Sweden invades Poland, the US of E is dragged into a full-scale European war against ruthless opponents. Meanwhile Mike Stearns, wily and courageous leader of the up-time West Virginians, has been turned out of office in an election. But, like Churchill before (and after) him, Stearns is not done yet. He's determined to stoke the fires of democratic rebellion in Saxony near the main front and thus keep the young nation he founded, and once led, out of the hands of medieval tyrants - tyrants who would like nothing better than to wipe those troublesome upstarts from the future off the time line and go back to the bad old days of oppression and serfdom.

Series is worth continuing to hear, but not binging*
& listen at fast speed in talking-head scenes. Those scenes are crucial, but not scintillating. Kudos to Eric Flint—a master writer who has himself another nice series. Review by Rick, April 26, 2018
Yes, that is “binge-ing”, not “bing-ing”
as in Crosby** or cherries.
**a mid 20th century singer who crooned***
***a smooth way of singing or talking

The most boring book ever
This author needs to take a course on alternative history from someone like Harry Turtledove. The performance was okay though I usually find this particular reader much better. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
