Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the fifth book in a series which speculates about what might have happened if World War II had started in 1938 after the Munich peace talks failed. Like most of the previous books in the series this is very much a "marmite" book which some people will like and others hate.

The books in the series to date and planned are:

1) "Hitler's War"

2) "West and East (War That Came Early)"

3) "The Big Switch: The War That Came Early"

4) "Coup D'Etat (War That Came Early (Del Rey Paperback))"

5) This book, "Two Fronts (the War That Came Early, Book Five)"

6) "Last Orders: The War That Came Early" (due for publication Summer 2014)

"The War that came early" is yet another alternative version of World War II from Harry Turtledove. It is quite astonishing that he can still find new perspectives from which to write about that war, but he does.

Nothing in this review is a spoiler for "Two Fronts" but it is difficult to describe this fifth book in the series without major spoilers for the third and fourth books which precedes it.

I was disappointed in this book. The pace was slow, much that was potentially interesting was left out, and in general the book added little to the series as a whole.

There were too many brief stories about combatants in various fronts which seemed little more than an attempt to pad out the series.

The concept that Britain and France would join in the war against the Soviet Union for no better reason that Hess asked them is quite frankly ludicrous. It might be plausible to argue that they'd accept an armistice, but expecting us to believe that they'd send troops to fight the Soviets, and then, after some fighting, simply pack up, go home and re-start the war against Germany defies all reason.

Another minor gripe is that the author believes that "England" and "Britain" are interchangeable.

As so often with Turtledove, his somewhat convoluted and repetitive prose comes close to ruining what is a well thought out story arc. His attempts to capture the vernacular of the time often grate, particularly with his British characters. Inexcusably for a historian, he uses "England" where "Britain" would be far more appropriate. I will likely finish reading the series, but I may give the next one a miss.
