This book is proof that Harry Trutledoveis one of the masters of Sci-fi/Alternate History.
Moreover, too many of the characters are underdeveloped, sometimes leaving them indistinguishable from one another.
Still, he manages to convey their alien sensibilities in a credible, believable and understandable manner.
