Publisher's Summary

Set in an alternate 1950s in which General MacArthur ignites a nuclear war that nearly destroys the planet. The third and final installment in an all new series, from "the standard-bearer of alternate history" (USA Today).

Not only is the outcome of the world's first nuclear war still to be determined, as the Americans and Russians continue to sling death at each other, but there remains the question of how hard it will be for humanity to rebuild itself from the ashes of destruction that this war has wrought. For can a victor truly be declared when all of humanity has paid the price?

Anticlimactic end to what should have been two books

***spoilers***
I was really looking forward to finishing this trilogy and it seems so was the author. The war basically wraps up about a third of the way in with "hey we have an H bomb!" "Lets kill Stalin with it" and then they do. In about that level of detail, description, and excitement.

The next eleven hours drones on about minor skirmishes and how all the characters get back to their old lives which includes a cringeworthy graphic description of a young widow having sex with a senior citizen.

Save your credits/$$$ and skip this book.

warning

Where does Armistice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

irrelevant to the point I am making

Who was your favorite character and why?

Which character – as performed by Henry Strozier – was your favorite?

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

irrelevant

Any additional comments?

I felt cheated. Armistice was passed off as a sequel to "Bombs Away" and it is nothing but a rehash of the earlier book. Don't waste your time if you have read the earlier novel. It may be a good read in its own right but that is no excuse for not alerting your readers.

Very slow. Not one of his best

This was a struggle to finish. While the series started if well the same could not be said for this one.

A great trilogy

A great trilogy from Turtledove. The thing about these books is that hut for a small twist, it could well have gone this way. Frightening, isn't it? A great narrator and story, you won't regret a purchase of this audio book.

another fine turtledove

it's formulaic, but a nice listen. Always fun, but nothing earth shattering. you can't go wrong with turtledove. the narration does nothing for the book though.
