Publisher's Summary

Set in an alternate 1950s in which General MacArthur ignites a nuclear war that nearly destroys the planet. The third and final installment in an all new series, from "the standard-bearer of alternate history" (USA Today).
Not only is the outcome of the world's first nuclear war still to be determined, as the Americans and Russians continue to sling death at each other, but there remains the question of how hard it will be for humanity to rebuild itself from the ashes of destruction that this war has wrought. For can a victor truly be declared when all of humanity has paid the price?

Anticlimactic end to what should have been two books

***spoilers***
I was really looking forward to finishing this trilogy and it seems so was the author. The war basically wraps up about a third of the way in with "hey we have an H bomb!" "Lets kill Stalin with it" and then they do. In about that level of detail, description, and excitement.

The next eleven hours drones on about minor skirmishes and how all the characters get back to their old lives which includes a cringeworthy graphic description of a young widow having sex with a senior citizen.

Save your credits/$$$ and skip this book.

A great trilogy

A great trilogy from Turtledove. The thing about these books is that hut for a small twist, it could well have gone this way. Frightening, isn't it? A great narrator and story, you won't regret a purchase of this audio book.
