At the bloody height of World War II, the deadliest enemies in all of human history were forced to put aside their hatreds and unite against an even fiercer foe: a seemingly invincible power bent on world domination.

 Amazon.com: The Great War: Books: Harry Turtledove   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
Harry Turtledove's second multivolume saga of 20th-century "alternative history," How Few Remain, takes place in a world in which the Confederate States win the Civil War and in 1914, allied with England and France, go to war against the United States once more.
As in Turtledove's earlier Worldwar series, the majority of attention is paid to an assortment of people at the battlefields and home fronts, their stories unfolding in gradual increments that, at least so far, only intermittently connect with each other.
Turtledove is not creating a utopia here, this world in which the South defeated the North in the 1860s and again in the 1880s is a much poorer and more dangerous world than our own.

When we last left the world that Harry Turtledove has crafted in seven books starting with How Few Remain, the Confederacy, firmly in control of Jake Featherston and the Freedom Party was launching its Operation Barbarossa-like attack on the United States and war was once again returning to the North American continent.
The mark of a great alternate history novel, though, is that it tells a story so plausible that you sometimes have to remind yourself that history didn’t really happen this way.
Harry Turtledove could have just as easily titled this final volume of the American Empire series The Triumph of Evil, because that is exactly the story unfolds over the seven years that the story that unfolds covers.
