Series review by Larry Thompson
"Excellent alternate history saga woven through with historical characters and plausible scenarios. Stuart can certainly write well as he weaves a common theme through this historical trilogy (with a marvellous fourth book loaded with short stories and scenarios he couldn't work into his main three books) following a half century of service, intrigue, betrayals, obsessions, strategies, wins and losses. He primarily follows one family through it all; it is fascinating and unlike anything I've ever read. It certainly turns history upside down. Stuart develops characters exceedingly well, and makes you love, hate, admire or fear them. It was what I call a really fun read (admittedly, it helps to have a basic knowledge of our history so that one can see the "divergences", understand and delight in them).
