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.
SPOILER* Germany wins WWI and France has to pay reparations to it. Hitler dies during service and Goering is arrested due to his Nazi activities and the party being abolished.
This follows a number of people serving in North Africa where things aren't going so well. The main character Tucker an American, meets the other main character a Nurse who you realise that there is a spark between the two but she is also being pursued by a fellow Doctor.
When I was reading this I was thinking that typical, Americans portrayed as being unbeatable but, mixing their training in with SAS, Montgomery' s death in Russia, Rommel coming in late, Germany under the Kaiser with its Central Power allies made for an excellent read.
One of the longer books I have read so far since I have had this Kindle, I would highly recommend this books as it has a number of twists that would change time, and would make you wonder how things would turn out in our time if, it happened.
I also wonder if there would be a sequel as, it though shows the allies regaining the western med and Gibraltar, who eventually wins the war?

There are so few books like this about. It is a fantastic and interest look into a world that might have been.Published on 27 Feb. 2014 by martin putt
Very disjointed I lost interest and didn't finish it . Hitler's death in The Great War was a good idea but an introductory story would have helped.Published on 22 May 2013 by Kindle Customer
For the money, this book was an excellent read. I heartily recommend it.
I look forward to reading his next book.
