really liked it

Original view of what could have been, and quite realistic for all I know. As a history buff interested in WW1 and alternate history I liked it. It is told through the eyes of regular people, giving different viewpoints of different sides of the conflict, and showing us what motivates them and the human side of war.
What I didn't like at all were the details. They make the story human, but slow it down almost unbearably. Too many characters, too many details, too much to read for too little story. 3.5 stars, rounded up for all the effort that went into it.
