Publisher's Summary

By the author of breakout World War II era alternate histories Himmler's War and Rising Sun, a compelling alternate-history thriller. After winning World War I, Germany invades America in 1920, marching through California and Texas as a desperate nation resists.
Consider this other 1920: Imperial Germany has become the most powerful nation in the world. In 1914, she crushed England, France, and Russia in a war that was short but entirely devastating. By 1920, Kaiser Wilhelm II is looking for new lands to devour. The United States is fast becoming an economic super-power and the only nation that can conceivably threaten Germany. The U.S. is militarily inept, however, and is led by a sick and delusional president who wants to avoid war at any price. Thus, Germany is able to ship a huge army to Mexico to support a puppet government. Her real goal: the invasion and permanent conquest of California and Texas.
America desperately resists the mightiest and most brutal army in the world, in a battle fought on land, at sea, and in the air as enemy armies savagely march up on California and move north towards a second Battle of the Alamo. Only the indomitable spirit of freedom can answer the Kaiser's challenge.

Glad It Didn`t happen

Where does 1920: America's Great War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Most of the books I have downloaded are good and some are very good. This one rates with the good. Good story, good characters and a good performance. The author does his research. His insights into the major players of the time are interesting and probably right on.

Not much here if you are not into military history

I am not a history buff, and did not get much out of seeing a number of historical characters and military men portrayed. Same goes for military tactics. These may have been awesome selling points for others.

Unfortunately there wasn't much else. The characters weren't that interesting. The anti-pacifist, pro-US... was just not all that new or insightful.
