Settling Accounts: The Grapple Summary


Settling Accounts: The Grapple by Harry Turtledove

Turtledove's alternate history of a century-long American civil war continues ...The third book in the Settling Accounts sequence takes the story to 1944, the most violent year of an utterly different World War II. The United States have found their fighting form at last. Pushed back from Pittsburgh, the Confederate States of America are struggling to hold their ground against an American army that seems to grow stronger by the day. While the United States press on towards the Mississippi valley, Jake Featherston's strategists in Richmond look for some way - any way - to slow down their inexorable advance. Deep in the heartland the extermination camps continue, but when all hope seems lost for their victims, the United States army turns at last towards the Texas plains. The fate of both sides, though, may lie elsewhere. A new menace appears in the Atlantic, intent on attacking the United States and scientists on both sides of the rapidly-moving border have nearly perfected an awesome new weapon that will guarantee victory for whoever uses it first. The greatest war of the twentieth century - fought this time in the heart of America - moves towards its blood-soaked climax.

Settling Accounts: The Grapple 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 (starred review for 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 SETTLING ACCOUNTS: RETURN ENGAGEMENT Turtledove's books are always great entertainment but in all these novels about an alternate North America the possible route of democracy, demagoguery and repression ring all too true ... the power of the book is in its ordinary people and their struggles. SFX Magazine on SETTLING ACCOUNTS: RETURN ENGAGEMENT Engrossing ... definitely the work of one of alternate history's authentic modern masters ... totally fascinating.
