"Tsouras reaffirms his status as a leading author of alternate military history in this story of a path untaken: the outbreak in 1863 of a war between Great Britain and the Union. The cause of the conflict is plausible, the details of combat are credible, and the narrative is a page-turner. He is a master of synergizing reality and fiction. Readers will look forward eagerly to the next volume in the series." --Dennis Showalter, professor of history at Colorado College
"Only a superb historian and a fine storyteller could have written this entrancing book. In the field of alternative history, no other author approaches Peter Tsouras's command of the actual historical facts--the essential foundation--and classic narrative skill. A grand read from first page to last!" --Ralph Peters, author of Looking For Trouble, Adventures in a Broken World
It leaves the reader hanging and waiting for the next book in what promises be an excellent series.
Peter Tsouras provides the reader with a fascinating look at "what could have been" during the American Civil War in his latest book "Britannia's Fist".
So well researched that the author presents fictional documents and photographs so well done they appear genuine.
I know the story's better than 3 stars. The issue is that (and please forgive me if I'm just now catching the "Obvious Bus") Kindle versions can't possibly be final print versions. Read morePublished 2 months ago by W. K. Aiken
Tsouras is at his worst in this one. Miles of text and very little dialogue. Actually worse than "For Want Of A Nail" and I didn't think that was possible.Published 8 months ago by J. meyer
I am a fan of alternate history as long as it is at least semi-realistic. Britannia's Fist fits the bill for me. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Gregory McClune
Where to start, first dont beleive all the 5 star reviews. I assume most are fictious or havent read the novel.
Why? Read more
Three stars only, but certainly not due to Tsouras' great story or the opening historical essay that is worth the cover price all on its own. Those factors deserve five. Read morePublished on September 20, 2011 by innpchan
Really didn't care for this book which is odd in that the reviews were so positive. Stopped about half-way through the book and ended up giving it to a library to get rid of it.Published on July 16, 2011 by Blue
I almost gave this series a pass. Writers of alternative history seem to ride on each other's coat tails a lot. Read morePublished on October 10, 2010 by Scott Martin Gavin
Writing alternative military history is a unique talent. Just think what it takes to write a factual military history book. Read morePublished on September 27, 2010 by Craig McLaughlin
Ok, I really liked this book. I agree with the other reviewers- the author's technical & historical details are amazing, and his depth of characterization is better than many. Read morePublished on April 5, 2010 by Wulfstan
