Having read the entire series so far, I must admit I'm only still reading them to see what happens. Although Turtledove does write good stories, I find his alternate history less than perfect. This book shows a slavish obsession with the events of our history. This history diverged in 1862, is it really realistic that the same events will still be happening on the same days, only with different players? I don't think so. By all means if your following the series read the book, it is interesting. But if you haven't read the series so far I'd give it a miss as you won't follow the back story of the characters and the events are formulaic and uninspiring.
