1945 was an awesome regarding what could have happened during World War II. It starts a little slow, speeds up and then BANG. It has pulled you into the story. Unfortunately the last three words are---To Be Continued. To my knowledge, and dismay, Newt has never written the last installment.

A great alternate-history WW2 tale. Unfortunately, the authors clearly intended this to be the first book in a series that never came off. This book ends with the words "To be continued..." but no sequel has appeared in the 14 years that have passed since this novel was published. Perhaps it did not sell well enough to encourage the publisher to allow Gingrich and Forstchen to continue the story, which is a damn shame. I give this book 4 stars, when it really deserves 5, only because of the fact that the promised sequel has never been published.

As things stand, the reader is treated to a great story about a Nazi raid on America's nuclear bomb facilities in Oak Ridge and Los Alamos, setting the stage for a final showdown between America (and Britain) against a Nazi Germany that rules all of Europe and parts of Africa. Sadly, the reader is left hanging, as the authors build up to what was obviously going to be one hell of a "Battle of Britain II" in the next novel, but after 14 years it seems doubtful that the reader will ever get to find out how the story plays out.

I must admit that had I known that I was only going to get to read a portion of the story that Gingrich and Forstchen intended to write, I would not have bothered to buy this book as I do not appreciate being left hanging with no resolution to the story.

I really wish the authors would finish this story line. They've been quite successful with their alternate-history of the Civil War, (a trilogy), and I would think that their publisher would have enough confidence in them by now to let them finish out the long-delayed "1945" story. One can only hope...

An interesting and adventurous premise. Adolf Hitler sends Otto Skorzeny, his top SS commando, to the US in command of a team of crack Nazi commandos - they fly across the Atlantic and refuel in Mexico, then on into the US and attack and destroy US nuclear facilities at Oak Ridge, Tennessee, just as America is on the verge of final development of the atom bomb. In doing so, America's program is set back considerably, thus setting the stage for advancement of German similar plans and eventual nuclear confrontation between Nazi Germany and the US. Unfortunately, Mr. Gingrich and Mr. Forstner leave the reader hanging at the very end, the novel is ripe for a climatic sequel, but none has been forthcoming for several years and I don't think there will be one.

I remember reading this when it was first published. It premised an alternative path for WWII based on two key events: 1) Adolf Hitler being incapacitated at the time Pearl Harbor was bombed, so that US did not enter the war in Europe, and 2) the ultimate clash between the two victors, the Germans in Europe, and the US in the Pacific. The book was creative, engaging, and at times, humorous--I did not want to put it down. And if Newt and William ever read this review, I am still awaiting its sequel. Where is it? Still, an excellent read.
