Neatly avoids national stereotypes!
on 31 May 2012
All things said, this was an easy and enjoyable book to read and represented a much needed brand new slant on AH. Are we all bored with the Confederates winning the Civil War or the Nazis the Second World War yet?
The action was well crafted and national stereotypes employed by other, better known authors of this genre were artfully avoided! That, to me, made it all the more pleasurable to read.
There were one or two silly moments which made one cringe. The first was american soldiers firing the guns on a Royal Navy cruiser and hitting a target! Another was a nurse and biplane pilot flying a four engined bomber. Not to mention all of the coincidences!
I could also have done with a bit more explanation on how the war started and what happened leading up to it. It was partially covered but not in enough detail.
I will probably read a sequel. Well done if you are a first time AH author.
