    It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis (Lammers)
    Lammers: Though written about the near-future, the passage of time has rendered this book "Alternative History."

Wasn't bad, wasn't as good as Newts Civil War rewrites. I guess I know a little more about WW2, so it is less plausible to me that teensy little Germany (pop 80.6 mil) could take on and defeat the US (pop 130 mil) and the USSR (pop 190 mil). And the Jerry "superweapons"...well it very much felt like it was written by a second rate sci-fi author and a second rate men's adventure writer rather than two men with Doctorates in history. Well, it's still better than Harry Turtledove

They really should have spent a little more time researching the Jerry weapons, they botched both the panzershreck and the MP 40, but I have come to realize that apparently no one knows more about small arms than I do.

Oh and it's a series. ends on a cliffhanger, next one isn't written yet. Feh. ( )
