Thoughts on this book:

The magical equivalent of the Trinity atomic bomb test was pretty impressive. So was the battle of Sulingen, this world's equivalent to Stalingrad.

Also, Turtledove does not hesitate to kill off viewpoint characters. Worse, he then proceeds to introduce the character's killer as the replacement viewpoint character. George R.R. Martin didn't give us a whole chapter from the viewpoint of *spoiler* Joffrey Baratheon or Walder Frey, did he? Turtledove does. Nice.

Recommends it for: Those who like Turtledove's series
This was a great series as Turtledove is a master at keeping the action moving with a large cast of characters taht he uses and kills off as required. I enjoyed the series and war between Algarve and Unkerlant rages on.
"1942", Sulingen aka Stalingrad, Land of the Ice People aka North Africa

Story continues, page turner, characters die, new characters take their place...

Things are becoming more clear: the characters are more easily recognisable for me. I very much like Pekka, Ealstan and Vanai.
