Alternative dystopian WWII history

S M Stirling’s Marching through Georgia is an alternative history tale with a dystopian orientation. A totalitarian slave owning society, the Draka, is established in South Africa and gradually takes over all of Africa. At the same time, they evolve to few themselves as a master race with aspirations to enslave the entire globe. Most of the story takes during WWII where the Soviet Union has been broken by Hitler. The US, fighting in two theaters, has a tough decision to ally themselves with the Draka to de-feat Hitler who is running roughshod over Europe. The action take place in Georgia (the country) with a crack unit of the unit facing overwhelming odds against superior German forces.

Stirling intersperses the action with generous helpings of backstory both historically dealing with the origins of the Draka as well as personally, dealing with the main characters. Each chapter leads with an excerpt from post-WWII publications, mainly history texts. In addition, there are discussions concerning the philosophical underpinnings of Draka psychology that add insight.

The narration is excellent with solid character distinction. Pacing is even and brisk.
