Warning: spoilers

It was a fun read, a welcome alternative during the reading (or better the studying) of a tough book: Stella del mattino. I liked it more than the last two parts of Turtledove's WWII series.
There are, however, some flaws: all the non American characters are flat and the bias against the French ones is obvious. Some turning points are too quick and lack of plausibility ((the dealings with Stalin and the Skorzeny's mission) or worse deny the historical background, like Heisenberg's success in making an atomic bomb.

Hitler is killed by a stray bomb not long after the Normandy invasion, and Himmler takes over as Fuhrer. The war continues, on a slightly different course.

Conroy's alternate histories are all interesting takes on military history, but his characters leave something to be desired. This is one of his less successful examples, although still readable. ( )
