Publisher's Summary

From "the standard-bearer of alternate history" (USA Today) comes the second installment in an all new series, set in an alternate 1950s in which General MacArthur ignites a nuclear war that nearly destroys the planet.
With the destruction of Paris by the Russian bombers, an already hot war ramps up to scalding. And even those whose lives have not yet been substantially touched by the war now find themselves in the midst of a living hell as Russia and the US continue to raise the stakes, wiping more and more cities off the face of the globe forever.

Turtledove has done better.

The Soviet Union built their first nuke in 1949. They now (1952) have an inexhaustible supply. No explanation given.

US forces keep falling for the same tricks time and again. IFF codes are changed, but the USSR always has the current ones. No explanation given.

The USA still only is using B-29 bombers, in spite of the existence of the B-32, B-36, B-50 and now the B-47. No explanation given.

needs better pauses

Any additional comments?

I would like to see a little more of a pause between sections. Sometimes the narrator goes from one section to another, changing setting and characters, with hardly an intake of breath to indicate the change. It can be a little confusing.
