1920: America’s Great War

We rated this book:


What would have happened if France hadn’t won the battle at Marne during World War I? Robert Conroy imagines just that in his fast-paced thriller 1920: America’s Great War. The Germans have just conquered both the French and British at Marne and the only remaining threat to German expansionism is the United States. German forces are already raiding the Texas border and discretely entering California’s ports to destroy America’s railroads and paralyze America’s mobility and prevent them from getting guns and soldiers to the site of the invasion. Engaging from page one, Conroy takes his readers into a fascinating alternate reality.

While some of the historic details are questionable, the plot is thrilling, the characters are instantly engaging, and the drama and danger are palatable. Conroy masterfully blends together fact and fiction, bringing alive historic characters like MacArthur, Eisenhower, and Churchill in realistic ways right alongside fictional hero Luke Martel and heroine Kirsten Biel. 1920-: America’s Great War is completely outside my normal genre selection but I’m truly glad to have given this one a shot. I can’t wait to read another Conroy adventure.
