A generation after the South won the first American civil War, America writhes once more in the bloody throes of battle. Furious over the annexation of key Mexican territory, the United States declares total war against the Confederate States. And so, in 1881, the fragile peace is shattered.

But this is a new kind of war, fought on a lawless frontier where the Blue and the Grey battle not only each other but the Apache, the outlaw – and even the British Redcoat. For along with France, Britain enters the fray on the Confederate side.

Reviews

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.
<i>Kirkus Reviews</i> on RETURN ENGAGEMENTS
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.
