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!

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!!!

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.
