Er, actually, NON-SPOILER warning. I am almost done with the 3rd book in the series. PLEASE don’t give away how it turns out, and the “Colonaiation” series is next, keep that to yourself too. Thank you.
I am really enjoying this series. I am a historian by training and Alternate History, when done like this, or like Mr. Turtledove did it in “How Few Remain”, is lots of fun! When history is strained through the PC crap we have to live with today, it’s bullshit. You can’t learn anything from that. History is the study of people and how they reacted to circumstances, not how it would be in your prissy ivory tower! Sorry. Has anyone else read this series, and what did you think?
REAL SPOILER WARNING*
As I read the books, it occurs to me that The Race is about where we are today, as far as warfare technology is concerned. Does anyone else get this impression? I keep thinking it would be a war of about a week or so had they landed now, not in 1942. We’d fry those Lizzards. Shame, really, I prefer a “Star Trek” vision of contact. Still, a bunch of DAMN good books!
