Stars and Stripes in Peril (Stars and Stripes #2) - Harry Harrison

"HARRY HARRISON IS ONE OF SCIENCE FICTION'S MOST PROLIFIC AND ACCOMPLISHED CRAFTSMEN." – The New York Times Book Review

In the midst of Civil War, a stunned North and South join forces to combat a sudden attack of British troops. Though the Americans are victorious, three years later a new threat emerges. Her Majesty's Army is massing for a possible attack through Texas. Into the gauntlet Lincoln sends his chosen angel of death, General Ulysses S. Grant – while his top soldiers, including Robert E. Lee and William Tecumseh Sherman, plan the most daring naval invasion ever launched: an assault on British soil itself.

Stars and Stripes in Peril is the new masterwork from one of the world's most provocative authors. Venturing beyond a fascinating question of what if? Harry Harrison brilliantly examines the people and passions that make up nations both great and small – and shows how technology and politics had the power to shape history’s first great World War... half a century before it began...

"Lovers of novels of alternate history hold Harry Harrison in high regard and his latest book can only enhance that esteem."Abilene Reporter News
