Those who write non-fiction so good, it seems as if you are there, in person. E.g., Anthony Beevor's Stalingrad, Cornelius Ryan's Longest Day. They concentrate on the Big picture, yet get down to unit or soldier level, with their unique knowledge of history and data on units, etc.
Then there are those who write fiction so good that you keep reading them, repeatedly, even though you know its fiction. E.g., Harry Turtledove's worldwar series and Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising. They provide an overall story, and get down to individual levels. But without the attention to detail that historical authors do. Their stories are good, and eminently readable. Yet we know they are fiction.
There's a third kind of author: very rare and very exceptional. They bring together the attention to detail and historical narrative of the first, with the storytelling ability of the 2nd. These are the authors whose attention to detail, down to unit level and even the flavor of tea they had in the morning in the real storyline, makes you forget this is fiction. John is that kind of author. His storytelling abilities are unique. The way he portrayed Naval Combat, with hounds being unleashed for the Hunt, was amazing and easy to understand and comprehend by non-military readers.
Every one of his book contains attention to detail, down to battalion and even to individuals and how they behaved in real-life, thus extrapolating them in this timeline. There are very authors like him who write fiction so good that you forget its fiction and enter their world. Only one other author Not Alone
made me forget reality for a while. The attention to details and a strong storyline is stunning.
And also am happy that Fedorov and Karpov are working together.
