Product Description

Product Description

It’s 1923, and the Austro-Hungarian Empire is in trouble. Following Germany’s triumph in the Great European War, as described in “Gray Tide In The East”, and the subsequent expansion of its power, influence and military strength, there are few countries in the world that are not affected and even fewer that do not expect Germany to use the slightest excuse to take control of them if the opportunity arises.

For Emperor Charles the First of Austria, there are other problems. Ethnic unrest threatens the break-up of the Empire, and he is well aware that Germany will take advantage of it. He has a plan to stabilise the countries within his control, but that will not placate Germany and already Charles is facing civil unrest and the threat of revolution. The only way forward is to form an alliance with other powers, the countries not yet wholly under Germany’s influence, but Austria’s diplomatic corps is riddled with German spies, as are most other Austrian government organisations. Any such plan would be sabotaged before it started, unless…

It might have seemed crazy, but there was one man who might be trusted, a man who could meet with Heads of State and senior government officials without arousing suspicion, a man sympathetic to anyone opposing Germany’s expansionist plans and yet a man whose high-level meetings would not alert Germany to his true mission. The only problem was that he was an American….

This short book is the second part of "Tidal Effects", which is the second full book in the series that started with "Gray Tide in the East" and which contains both this book and "High Tide". This book is a complete story in itself, and includes illustrations from historical archives.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly Great Read 9 Oct 2014

Pretty good Alternate world story. Alot of behind the scene actions of different government. A wold that Wold War 1 ended differently and World War 2 hasn't happen. This was suppose to have been a one book story that is developing a life of it on. I like how the story effects everyone from the German Kasier to halls of washington and every country in between. I like how the author has been using real people and real facts. It is a what if world in which anything can happen. I can see World War II is going to have to happen but will the author let it and how will it effect his world. I will be following his story.

I thoroughly enjoyed the interpretations the author presented us readers. In fact, the failure of the Allies to "seize the moment", following the end of the Great War(saving the AustroHungarian empire by turning it into a federation, the implications of which would have greatly altered the course of European politics in the early twentieth century), could be regarded as one of the most significant innocents ever...

This is a story that has not only the elements of alternative history but laced with historically accurate personages. It is a very interesting story and very plausible. A quick read.

Left me wanting for a more interesting ending, the solution to the Austrian German Hungarian issue would have been expected
