Publisher's Summary

A compelling alternate-history novel by the breakout author of WWII-era alternate history Himmler's War and Rising Sun

The British win the American Revolutionary War, and a desperate Washington and the American founders must make a last stand in an enclave called Liberty.

In 1781, George Washington's attempt to trap the British under Cornwallis at Yorktown ends catastrophically when the French fleet is destroyed in the Battle of the Capes. The revolution collapses, and the British begin a bloody reign of terror. A group of rebels flees westward and sets up a colony near what is now Chicago. They call it Liberty. The British, looking to finish what they started, send a very large force under Burgoyne to destroy them. Burgoyne is desperate for redemption and the Americans are equally desperate to survive.

Had the Battle of the Capes gone differently, a changed, darker New World would have been forced into existence. But even under those dire circumstances, Liberty may still find a way!

Why

I really like the story and the characters were real enough, but why so much graphic sex? I only made it through the first few chapters and had to stop.

Bronson, just... no.

This is one of the few Audible purchases that I’ve made over the past 10 years where I’ve actually had to force myself to finish. One of only reasons I did finish is because I just had to write a review and didn’t want to be a hypocrite by not completing this... ‘book’.

Give me Liberty or I'll try aging

Warning: Grapic Sexual content and torture

The story should have gave a warning to the above subject has I thought this was an alternate history novel but authour really went into showing how different historical figures could be with events differed to how we knew them. Has I listened the authour stuck yo a few Figures in American history lay giving reasons to why others had little parts do I think he should giving Gerogie Washington his POV in his finale moments. There are also the Native Americans who the author should alot biased towards in the novel by ignoring there parts in the american revolution and has he shiwed chacthers has they appeared either has scheming cowards or blood thirsty warriors. I believe the novel should been longer are expaned into a book series has in my opinion the authour tryed to do everything in one novel.

Alternate History at its Best!

I have been a fan of Robert Conroy's work since I read Castro's Bomb many years ago. I love how Bronson Pinchot brought the characters to life and how Conroy manages to convey the vile hostility of the British Government in the colonies with the determination of the rebels. I wish all of his novels were available as audiobooks. I would buy them in a heartbeat!!!

Not for me

I started listening to this book because I enjoyed other works by the author. however this seemed less entertaining than the others. It might have been to my less familiarity with the time period or the much more prevalent scenes of a sexual nature. but it was not my cup of tea.

repeating stories

the stories, while all interesting, are a little repetitive. if you have listened to two or three other stories in Robert Conroy A,R, books you will be able to predict a large number of the protagonists' actions.

Good story but…

I thought the plot was very good but there were problems. The biggest being a lot of graphic sex scenes that did not really forward the plot line. Those could have been dropped and the plot lines of the native Americans and other smaller rebel armies expanded.. There just seemed to be a lot of missed opportunities to make a better novel out of an excellent plot line.

we need more

i greatly enjoyed listening to this book and my only quibble is more in the nature of a compliment I feel the ending seemed somewhat abrupt. My interest was caught by several plot threads such as the stories of Tecumseh and the story of Homer which called for more exploration. Speaking of exploration, the Clark expedition west is briefly mentioned and dismissed along with the mentions of other European powers controlling parts of N. America. To me these points cry out for a deeper exploration in a follow up book or books. If they have already been written and I've missed them thank you and how do I find them. If not please write them.

Entertaining but not great

It was hard to score this one. The ending never felt in doubt. No huge surprises. The villains were fairly standard. Nothing extraordinary but nothing bad.

Crap

What utter crap!
Characters are cartoon two dimensional at best. The sex scenes are best skipped altogether, rather embarrassing actually. Benidict Arnold is a minor character that could of been explored more. Washington is removed very early in the book. Banastre Tarleton is both stupid and a murderer. The British are portrayed as evil and rather stupid at times. The French enter their revolution early which I don't think would of happened as economics at the time had to play out. The Americans are noble good men and the women hardy. This piece of fiction is ridiculous and formulaic. The ending is unbelievable and to be honest, I had trouble finishing this book. Why is it that Americans still push 'the lie' of the the revolution. Why not just tell the truth and look at it objectively to learn from it rather than glory in the fiction.
