Best-selling master of alternate history Harry Turtledove offers a new vision of America after World War I. In 1920, as veterans question the very nation they fought for, socialist Upton Sinclair challenges Teddy Roosevelt for the presidency. And in the defeated Confederacy, a fiery racist whips his followers into a frenzy. '[His] skill at dramatizing historical forces proves magisterial once more.'-Booklist

A decent story but I wish there was more backstory as to why history changed rather than simply stating that the Confederacy won the Civil War and that the allies were mixed up for World War I. I really wish it gave explanation on why these things happened and why they were different.

The similarities to the US in the 1920s and today are striking: Spanish flu -- COVID-19 black people still fighting for justice & equality The way Harry Turtledove wrote the election of 1920 seemed just like the 2016 election of Donald Trump. It is brilliant. I felt just as depressed reading it as I did in 2016. Featherstone was writing his "Mein Kampf" while he's trying to become president. He wasn't a struggling artist, but he was held back in rank unfairly. If Turtledove is sticking to history, it makes sense that Featherstone would be a racist. He's like Hitler, but the US had a massive surge in the white nationalist movement in the 1920s. Quotes I liked from the book: A party that shouts for freedom doesn't want it. Do we want them to think of nothing but paying us back?
