The story line is a political stretch
What was most disappointing about John Birmingham’s story?
The story keeps digging into politics. I don't think the author understands American politics. I can handle the worm hole story in the plot but too unbelievable was an aircraft carrier named after Hillary Clinton and a flag officer stating that the military loved Hillary Clinton. The author keeps banging a drumb about race relations, that in 2021 magically all of the race issues that the U.S. Struggles with are resolved. If the author had brought his political and race agenda up only a dozen times per chapter, I might have been able to continue with the book. The politics just destroyed the book for me. Bottom line, a worm hole to the past is far more believable than the authors vision of American politics and Americas racial problems.

Excellent Alternate History
I really enjoyed the premise of this book and rank the storytelling right up there with Jack Campbell's "Lost Fleet Series" in the intensity of the action and portrayal of characters.
There may be too much gratuitous sex sprinkled throughout though. I really don't need to know about Beria getting ready to masturbate to pornography while talking to Stalin (book 3). And way too much with Slim Jim.
Worth the credits.
