This book shows different paths that American and world history could have taken. Author really held my interest all the way through. Some of the book centers around the space race. In addition the book covers space travel and colonizing the moon and beyond. When changes are made to affect the outcome of certain events, the books shows what would have happened if things were changed, and what things are fated to happen no matter what. Many important events in history are covered in this book. Everything is believable and I found myself wishing a lot of it happened like it does in the book.
Excellent story - I couldn't get enough. Stayed up 'til 3:30am to finish. I'll look for more books by Cliff Ball.

I enjoyed your story, it was very long but was well worth the reading to know more about all that had happened during the time lines that you had chosen because my hubby and I did not have any tv available to us during this period of time as we were very busy sharing Jesus with the Mormons at this same time period. It does keep one's interest that the reader wants to continue reading it to find out just what will happen. I recommend this ebook for those who may have also been in a position as we were and were not able to know all what was going on at this time period. Or even those who are real history buff readers. Not for those who need a short easy to read ebook though and not for young children.
For all of these reasons and the fact of all the research study he must have had to do to write this ebook I am giving this ebook five stars. Great work Cliff! By Angela

I just love Alternative History story because of the interesting story that comes out of it. It seem like what ever the human race does in the timeline it never goes well until countless times though the timeline. But I am telling the whole story. This is a recommended read if you are looking for something different to read .

I was fascinated by this authors ambition. The story was certainly entertaining however the pacing of the story was very fast. When I realized it wasn't going to slow down, I just decided to hang on and see where the author/story took me. It was a very fast read. I'd like to give it more stars because it actually was fun to read if not unbelievable at times. I would like a president like McBride. He had no fear of the unknown and was decisive and confident. Absolutely none of the other characters were memorable. The book was about the story and the characters were known by their role in history and not by what the author wrote. It would have worked if there had been a fully developed, strong character who was part of the story throughout most the book.
