Through a mixture of guts, ingenuity and sheer luck, Earth managed to defend herself from her ruthless alien would-be conquerors. The 'Race' was fought to a bloody standstill despite its awe-inspiring weaponry and experience of merciless conquest. Thousands died from enemy fire, many more from the smouldering nuclear-scarred fall-out sites. An uneasy ceasefire reigns over this divided globe, as both sides strive to test their strength through more subtle techniques.
But now, years later, this delicate equilibrium has been shattered. For the first assault was only an advance. guard. Now, a whole new fleet orbits the planet.
The real colonists have arrived, fresh and unwill to accept old compromises.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"[A] tour-de-force of speculattive historical fiction. Highly recommended"
Library Journal


With shocking vividness, Turtledove demonstrates the extreme fragility of our modern world . . . This is state-of-the-art alternate history, nothing less * Publishers Weekly on HOW FEW REMAIN) *
Turtledove plays heady games with actual history, scattering object lessons and bitter ironies along the way. Strong, complex characters against a sweeping alt-historical background. * Kirkus Reviews on RETURN ENGAGEMENTS *

"An exciting, often surprising, story that will not only delight his fans but will probably send newcomers back to the WORLDWAR saga"
Publishers Weekly (starred review)


"Outstanding entertainment"
Booklist


Good fun. It has an authentic speculative quality, energy and dash. * Time Out on A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE *
Engrossing ... definitely the work of one of alternate history's authentic modern masters . . . totally fascinating. * Booklist on THE GREAT WAR series *
