The series started well, but then it slid off a cliff.
Jul 25, 2010 rated it it was ok
This series started off entertainingly enough and it was at least a somewhat believable premise as long as you didn't care too much about the actual history but by the third book this has become practically a sci-fi series and goes way off the deep end

This is the final book of the Stars and Stripes trilogy and I would recommend it. I'd call this series my 3rd favorite of Harrison's alternative history series. Hammer and Cross is my favorite, West of Eden is my 2nd favorite, and this is my 3rd. Considering how good Harrison is, coming in 3rd place is a compliment.

In this final book in the Stars & Stripes trilogy, Harry Harrison gives away a huge spoiler in the book's title. Yep, the USA wins its final showdown with Great Britain. But don't worry. If you've read the first two books, would you really have expected it to come out any other way? It's still fun. Not a great book, but entertaining. It is still fun to see Robert E Lee, Ulysses Grant, and Sherman fighting on the same side. The other generals don't make an appearance as they have in prior ins ...more

This is the third and final entry in Harry Harrison's alternate history trilogy set during the 1860's. The first book, of course, set up the notion of the American Civil War being interrupted by a British attack on New Orleans, leading to the Americans re-uniting against a new common foe. Having successfully defended itself, the US follows up in the second book by diverting another British attack through Mexico, aimed at the American's soft underbelly by assisting the Irish to gain their indepen ...more

What if the Civil War had tuned out differently? Anyone who like historical fiction will love this book. Instead of a long drawn out war between the states they come together to fight a common enemy. Oh how that may have changed the world.

I seemed to wait a long time for the third and final part of the trilogy to be published. Whilst not disappointed with the story, was disaapointed with the bias shown against the Englishrilogy. in the t

Interesting series, but demonizes the British WAY too much.
