Publisher's Summary

No one could stop them - not Stalin, not Togo, not Churchill, not Roosevelt....

The invaders had cut the United States virtually in half at the Mississippi, vaporized Washington, D.C., devastated much of Europe, and held large parts of the Soviet Union under their thumb. But humanity would not give up so easily. The new world allies were ruthless at finding their foe's weaknesses and exploiting them. Whether delivering supplies in tiny biplanes to partisans across the vast steppes of Russia, working furiously to understand the enemy's captured radar in England, or battling house to house on the streets of Chicago, humankind would never give up.

Yet no one could say when the hellish inferno of death would stop being a war of conquest and turn into a war of survival - the very survival of the planet....

    "Easy to tell if you will like this book"

    This is the second book in the World War series. “In the Balance” is the first and you need to read that first.

    So, if the first one gets you hooked and you understand that this has same type of non-ending; by all means go ahead and get this.

    "Good story, great performance."

    If you've enjoyed the first book in this series, you should enjoy this one as well. I like the story, but what really makes this title enjoyable for me is the performance by Todd McLaren. He has different voices for the characters and does a good job providing accents for the different nationalities. Not all narrators do this, and it makes listening to this book much more enjoyable.
