あらすじ・解説

This fascinating third volume in the Britannia's Fist series will have you pondering how easily history could have been swayed differently. What if other countries had become involved in America's Civil War? Historian Peter G. Tsouras presents the third installment in his Britannia's Fist alternate history series.

The winter of 1863 lowered a white curtain on the desperate struggle for North America. The United States and Great Britain fought each other to a bitter draw. On both sides of the Atlantic, the forges of battle glowed as they poured out new technologies of war. British and French aid transformed the ragged Confederate armies and filled them with new confidence. Both sides strained to be ready for the coming campaign season. Now both sides seek to anticipate each other. The British strike suddenly at Hooker's strung-out army in winter quarters in upstate New York in a brutal, swirling, late battle across frozen fields and streams. Besieged Portland shudders against relentless assault. The French attack Fort Hudson on the Mississippi. At Lincoln's direction,two great raids are launched at the United Kingdom itself as Russia enters the war on the side of the Union to raid the Irish Sea. These are only preliminaries to the great gathering of modernized armies and ironclad fleets, and with them are deadly submersibles and balloons.

Battles rage from Maine to Northern Virginia and the Chesapeake Bay, down to steamy Louisiana. And far away across the sea, Dublin stands siege as Russia simultaneously eyes Constantinople. For Americans (blue and gray), Britons, Irish, Frenchmen, and Russians, the summer of 1864 is the crescendo battle of destinies and dreams.

Thoughtful and Dramatic Alt-History

Peter Tsouris wraps up satisfyingly (for a Yankee). The series is not for those seeking great psychological insights. But it includes enough drama and personality to be a novel and not an imaginary history textbook. The narrator delivered excellent voices--especially Lincoln-- and pacing.

Disappointing ending

After 3 books in the series the author nailed out on the ending. I also did not like what the author did to Americas allie.

Good ending

I feel better. Enjoyed as much as volume 2. one mention for all three I got used to but didn't enjoy, I wasn't fond of changes of subject from the middle of battles. Especially when the detailed back histories or descriptions seemed longer than the battle sequences. But like I said, I got used to it and have that time to allow me to enjoy the book and series overall.

USA vs Empire

I’ve read all the books in the Britannia’s fist series and I have enjoyed each one.
There is lots of action with all sides giving it their all some people have said it’s far fetched and that some of the weapons used like the airships could never have happened all that some of the events could never have happened.
But as story it is just great fun and that’s all I want from a book and if that’s what you want you will like this book.

Partisan and parochial

Very well tesesefhed but the premise and conclusions are poor. The writer sssumes gross failures of diplomacy and strategy by the European powers. Meanwhile the US adopts new technologies over night and wins the battle of espionage at every turn. Good fun but poorly put together.
