Publisher's Summary

From "the standard-bearer of alternate history" (USA Today) comes the second installment in an all new series, set in an alternate 1950s in which General MacArthur ignites a nuclear war that nearly destroys the planet.

With the destruction of Paris by the Russian bombers, an already hot war ramps up to scalding. And even those whose lives have not yet been substantially touched by the war now find themselves in the midst of a living hell as Russia and the US continue to raise the stakes, wiping more and more cities off the face of the globe forever.

    "needs better pauses"
    Any additional comments?

    I would like to see a little more of a pause between sections. Sometimes the narrator goes from one section to another, changing setting and characters, with hardly an intake of breath to indicate the change. It can be a little confusing.

    "Turtledove has done better."

    The Soviet Union built their first nuke in 1949. They now (1952) have an inexhaustible supply. No explanation given.

    US forces keep falling for the same tricks time and again. IFF codes are changed, but the USSR always has the current ones. No explanation given.

    The USA still only is using B-29 bombers, in spite of the existence of the B-32, B-36, B-50 and now the B-47. No explanation given.

    "turtledove is great"

    turtledove writes well, the charter development is very strong. Look at both sides gives a different perspective on conflict. he builds his charters with great care. I've noticed that all of the serries have a woman on each side of the conflict. there are a few other details that run through his stories.

    "Another Turtle dove classic"

    My review? I can't wait to dig into the third book in this series. Does that tell you what you need to know?

    I enjoy dramatic non fiction, historical, military, science fiction, humor and well... as long as it's a good read I won't turn it down!

    "Great Read!"
    Any additional comments?

    I grabbed this book while on a camping trip and couldn't put it down- had to down load the Audible version to listen to on my commute when I returned. I didn't realize that this was the second in the series so I can assume that Bombs Away had some more of the back story but it read fine as a stand alone. May suggest reading Bombs Away first, but this was definitely a fun book to read!

    "Good read but some major technical issues"

    It's 1952 and they use the B29 as a modern day stealth and that is not realistic at all. After the first sneak attacks both sides have figured out the tactics they use.

    Then several bomb strikes later they are still using the same tactics with B29s. Where are the B36 and B47 bombers?

    Then people magically heal up from Radiation sickness?

    It's an alright read but he really should of changed things up after the first book in the hot war series
