Publisher's Summary

Walk in Hell is the incredible second book of best-selling author Harry Turtledove’s alternate history tetralogy of World War I, The Great War. The first book, American Front, was chosen by Publishers Weekly as one of the Best Books of 1998.
In this startlingly vivid portrait of a world torn apart by war and strife, the Confederate States of America ally with Britain and France, while the United States sides with Germany in a World War I that might have been.


What the Critics Say

"Turtledove judiciously blends famous historical characters into the plot, so readers learn of General Custer's frustration at being unable to conquer Tennessee and see Woodrow Wilson as a Confederate president. Although there are numerous battle scenes, the gore is restrained. Instead, the author emphasizes character, and his thorough knowledge of the period's history will, as usual, captivate his readers." (Publishers Weekly)
"Alternate history buffs...will marvel at his mastery of detail, enjoy following his logic as he pursues military and social developments onward in time, and find it hard to wait for the next in the series." (Amazon.com review)

Perhaps because I was more knowledgable on the civil war and that era's characters, or perhaps simply those characters were more interesting, the Great War saga so far has bored me comparatively. Only until the end of the book is any broad lens applied towards how the war is going, or any significant gains or losses for either side. Harry Turtledove's attempts to write any coherent female character again end in squalor. Nothing lulled me to sleep better than this audiobook, so do take care if listening while driving.
