    History is rewritten in an instant as the future smashes into the past, and high-tech hardware goes head to head with World War Two technology. In the chaos that ensues, thousands are killed, but the maelstrom has only just begun. The veterans of Pearl Harbor have never seen a helicopter, or a cruise missile - let alone nanotechnology, ceramic bullets, and F22 Raptor stealth jetfighters. Allied and Axis forces are then caught in a desperate struggle to gain the upper hand.

    The Zombie Specialist says: "Great... addicted to another loooooong series!"
    "Not a bad read, but think twice before you buy"
    Overall

    I read the reviews prior to purchasing and saw several had mentioned the language of the book as a negative. I can tolerate most language, but WHOA... I wasn't prepared for the rampant use of the N-word, the F-bomb, and other racial slurs.

    I also found the book to have several areas that are unbelievable, even for sci-fi. The author does a fairly good job setting the scene of the 1940's, but I find some of the technology from 2021 (just a mere 12 years away) to be a stretch. The author fails to recognize how slow the military is to implement cutting edge technology.

    The narrator is decent and makes an effort to sound like the real historical figures (like Roosevelt and JFK).

    Unlike other reviewers, I did push through to the end, but it was a difficult task. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this book to most people.
