Worldwar: Upsetting the Balance Summary


Worldwar: Upsetting the Balance by Harry Turtledove

Alien invaders from another star system have attacked the Earth, wreaking massive destruction and havoc with their terrifyingly advanced military technology. Humans are forced to unearth secret caches of terrible, once-forbidden weapons. Hitherto unthinkable tactics are brought into action against the alien enemy.
Even as fuel shortages force people back to the horse and cart, the world's scientists work desperately to create Earth's first atom bombs - with horrific results. If the carnage and slaughter ever stop, will their be any pices to pick up?

Worldwar: Upsetting the Balance 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 *
