A continuation of 1635: The Eastern Front, this is the tale of overreach, greed and a desire to return to old ways meeting up with public enthusiasm and desire for change that results in less carnage than forecast due to restraint on several characters' actions. The title is a bit misleading in that the Saxons did not rise up, rather repression came down upon them. Definitely not the book to start the series (Eric Flint has a guide to reading the series in the back of the book).
