Humanity is still locked in a battle for supremacy with the conquering alien
invaders, the Race. The German Reich has finally been subdued and the
Race believe it only to be a matter of time before the rest of the planet follows

However, they underestimate humanity’s desire for freedom and the lengths
they will go to gain it. With America and Russia holding the alien invaders
off in a technological standoff, the disorganised red armies of Mao Tse-tung’s
revolutionaries causing havoc and the ever-increasing dependence of the
Race on the addictive substance ginger, the Empire realises that the colonisation
of Earth may only be achieved through its total destruction.

‘Turtledove the standard bearer for alternate history.’ USA Today


With shocking vividness, Turtledove demonstrates the extreme fragility of our modern world . . . This is state-of-the-art alternate history, nothing less
<i>Publishers Weekly</i> on HOW FEW REMAIN)
Turtledove plays heady games with actual history, scattering object lessons and bitter ironies along the way. Strong, complex characters against a sweeping alt-historical background.

Good fun. It has an authentic speculative quality, energy and dash.
<i>Time Out</i> on A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE
Engrossing ... definitely the work of one of alternate history's authentic modern masters . . . totally fascinating.
