Customer Review

on 12 November 2006
This is a brilliant book, I loved it.

Time travel to the past is such a tired idea, but this is like a "breath of fresh air" it takes the concept and makes it seem real. Most books would just look at the weapons and that angle but Birmingham covers the social angle to great effect too. For example the ships that go back to 1942 have crews of men AND women of all ranks and from all races. That doesnt seem strange until you remember that in World War Two things were very different, no women or people from minorities in position of authority especially in the US Marine corps so the survivors from the future have to end up fighting enemies in the USA as well as Germans and Japanese.

History changes rapidly as the info falls in to the hands of Stalin, Hitler and the Japanese none of whom like what the future holds for them and make every effort to change the version we know. It has hooked me and I wonder how Birmingham is going to wrap things up?

Buy this book!
