Weapons of Choice was an well-written novel of alternative history. The premise (for why a futuristic naval battle group was sent back to 1942) failed to ring true. However, the rough relationship between the twenty-first century, multinational force and their World War Two counterparts was fascinating to read about. The fluid action scenes, authentic dialogue, and detailed settings were all top-notch. I enjoyed how Birmingham vividly described the era’s many interesting personalities (Roosevelt, Einstein, and so on). The author succeeded in making the book readable and fast-paced despite the large number of events and variety of characters.
