Volume 2 Nothing special Modern american town Finds itself in the midst of the thirty years war and brings Democracy, Big Guns and Apple Pie to the people. To be fair the authors do try to give the Pie a european flavour.[return][return]I learned some odds and sods about the history while grappled with an unlikely plot. Eric Flint is very much a product of the American trade union movement which gives the revolutionary ideals of this book a different feel to that usual.[return][return]For some reason this book brought home to me that many Americans do genuinely see themselves as part of an on going and continuing revolution. Democracy is for them very much a revolutionary ideal.
