    In the extraordinary Worldwar tetralogy, set against the backdrop of World War II, Harry Turtledove, whom Publishers Weekly has called the "Hugo-winning master of alternate SF," wove an explosive saga of world powers locked in conflict against an enemy from the stars.

    I was so excited

    I think I would recommend this only because you'll want to continue thru the story. I was so looking forward to a greater amount of new content. I hav..Show More »

    In 1942, Hitler led the world's most savage military machine. Stalin ruled Russia while America was just beginning to show its strength in World War II. Then, in Harry Turtledove's brilliantly imagined Worldwar saga, an alien assault changed everything. Nuclear destruction engulfed major cities, and the invaders claimed half the planet before an uneasy peace could be achieved.

    Fantastic

    Well written. Love the series. Great thing that it uses real people and try to interpret the books can't wait for next one

    Set in the same universe as the Worldwar series, the Colonization series brings us to Earth in the 1960s, where four superpowers rule: the United States, Russia, Nazi Germany, and the aliens of the Race.

    Nothing much happens (entire series)

    This is the third and last book in the "Colonization" series. After the World War series, this left me utterly disappointed. It feels like Turtledove ..Show More »

    With his epic novels of alternate history, Harry Turtledove shares a stunning vision of what might have been - and what might still be - if one moment in history were changed. In the Worldwar and Colonization series, an ancient, highly advanced alien species found itself locked in a bitter struggle with a distant, rebellious planet: Earth. For those defending the Earth, this all-out war for survival supercharged human technology, made friends of foes, and turned allies into bitter enemies.

    Novel storyline and very good narration

    I was a bit skeptical about the storyline when I began this series but Harry Turtledove does a pretty credible job with his extrapolation of history, ..Show More »
