The series that started in Hitler's War chugs along slowly and somewhat repetitively here, though things happen of course and history moves even farther away from our timeline (one hint: Winston Churchill never gets to be PM when Chamberlain's cancer takes him down in 1940)

The main problem with the book is that the format that worked very well in the first volume and reasonably well in the second (multiple pov's from front line grunts - low ranking officers or just regular soldiers - in all theaters of war plus the two very different women's experiences - a Jewish girl in Nazi Germany and a wealthy American trapped in Europe) stalls here with the same old, same old to a large extent; this being said the book still compelled me to turn the pages and I finished it fast, but it is a very middle-series book where things just chug along and i hope the next volume heats them up considerably
