With shocking vividness, Turtledove demonstrates the extreme fragility of our modern world ... This is state-of-the-art alternate history, nothing less Publishers Weekly on HOW FEW REMAIN) Turtledove plays heady games with actual history, scattering object lessons and bitter ironies along the way. Strong, complex characters against a sweeping alt-historical background. Kirkus Reviews on RETURN ENGAGEMENTS Good fun. It has an authentic speculative quality, energy and dash. Time Out on A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Engrossing ... definitely the work of one of alternate history's authentic modern masters ... totally fascinating. Booklist on THE GREAT WAR series
