The Great War: the American Front Summary

The Great War: the American Front by Harry Turtledove

It is 1914, and a generation lies rotting in the stinking trenches of modern warfare. A continent is crucified by a million miles of barbed wire. The cream of two powerful nationas are fighting each other to bloody stalemate. But this is not France . . . this is America.

The bloodiest of conflicts is played out in the heart of the new world, where north fights south to the death - again.

The Great War: the American Front Reviews

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
