For "uptimers" like Britain's Prince Harry and the men and women who serve aboard the supercarrier USS Hillary Clinton, war is a constant struggle with their own downtime allies, who are mired in ignorance and bigotry.
As the Allies counter the Nazi assault and set off for the coast of France, Japan begins to buckle, soon every battle will be played out in a lethal dance of might and intelligence, unholy alliances and desperate gambles, and each clash will be fought with the ultimate weapon; knowledge from the future.
Thanks to the historical records, all sides know that two superpowers will emerge, while the losers will be pounded into submission. But time has shifted on its axis, so none know who will survive, or how peace will take hold in a world turned upside down. These are the questions that John Birmingham brilliantly answers in his critically acclaimed adventure of war and imagination.

Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
Completely enjoyed this series. Would like to have seen it as a movie would have been great a bit long of course but good. Well writen kept me looking forward to the next chapter and the ending covered the open details.
This series was an excellent and quick read. Very good story from an alternate universe. I wish there had been an extra book in there as there was a lot of action between Book 2 and Book 3 that was only briefly talked about in Final Impact.
A different slant to World War II
I think that Mr. Snyder did a great job with the narration and characters.
The end of J. Edgar Hoover
Great series right up there with Harry Turtledove
Harry Turtledove fan
Tight and wonderful live narration.
The Morning star series
Yes. Day by Day Armageddon. His dramatization was different in that book.
Yes. Especially funny at unexpected times. Like Himmler cursing Windows File manager and cursing Bill Gates.
Hope Audible creates such wonderfully narrated books instead of messing them up.
Enjoyed listening to the series. After growing up watching the movie "The Final Countdown", this series took that storyline all the way through WW2. It was fast paced and addictive. There were some big time gaps between books. Overall a entertaining fun trilogy.
I liked JB's Without Warning series so much that I decided to give these a try. Really great story and a cool premise. I thought he did a good job with the historical figures and has a good sense of the historical view of the strengths and weaknesses of each, as these are understood currently.
A great wrap to the trilogy by Birmingham. Great historic reality combined with just enough fantisy to keep you tied into the serious actual events and what could have happened if things were just a little off center.
On the whole and in the grand total. I really enjoyed the book. And given recent events. It inspires hope that given power we act to the best of our abilities to high ideas.
