Although I was initially disappointed, as I was expecting more stories than history, I quickly warmed up to the various histories of different people groups. Cozort is detailed and expansive. He doesn't give into the easy possibilities, focusing only on the history of war, like some other series. Cozort recognizes that war is only one small part of the human condition, and there is much else that influences the tides of history as well.
I would still have liked further exploration of different scenarios. Often he stops when things start to really get going. He doesn't want to explore anything beyond the mid-1700s, because he says it's too difficult to predict. That's okay. That's where the fiction comes in.
I also found it difficult that there were so many grammar and spelling errors, likely because the book was self-published. And lastly, Cozort misses a major opportunity for discussion of American Indian victories. There was one group of Europeans who consistently stood by the Native Americans, who always treated them as equals, and indeed ended up giving up power because they did not agree with how other Europeans were treating the Natives. What if the Quakers had managed to continue control of Pennsylvania, had not given up power, and fostered true First Nation freedom and equality within that colony?
A very broad view that at the end as a paradox leaves you with a better understanding of the mechanics underlying the real history of the American indians.
