Can't believe Turtledove wrote this
on 31 October 2010
I have read and enjoyed many of Turtledoves Novels, but this series and in particular this book, is without doubt the worst yet, dull and uninteresting characters and very little action, i felt like i'd read it all before in his previous books set during World War II.
I find it hard to believe that Germany would be equipped to fight in France, Norway and Poland in mid 1939, though he does make the Panzer II to be a world beater, there are many more examples that a completely unbelievable.
One trait of Turtledove's that has annoyed me in all his books that contain UK forces, is his how he continues to refer to the UK and it's armed forces as "England/English" even when scenes contain an apparent Welsh character.
"Hitler's War" was a struggle, but this really was excruciating reading, i certainly won't be purchasing the next in the series
