    1 thought on “Acts of War

    1. Acts of War is a fine example of a new genre called Alternative History, which takes timelines which have already occurred then follows a splintered branch off of it Still bound by the rules of reality which were in place at the time of the divergence, Mr Young has crafted a tale of how the Second World War might have gone down The book has a large cast of characters Some walk onto the page, say something, do something, then leave They may pop up later in a heroic moment or tragic death, but the [...]

    2. It s not my genre, but I did like it Probably in need of some editing, maybe could ve done with less characters to develop I found myself wanting of Adams, less of the brothers and their sister However, the parts of the story surrounding actual war are fantastic I was enthralled and you can tell Young knows his stuff, especially with how the officer characters related with each other However, the character building outside of work relationships didn t work as well for me.

    3. Very enjoyableAnother good what if book It s obviously been well researched and is quite unnerving to think how close to disaster the allies were in WW2 Looking forward to the next one.

    4. Originally posted at amazingstoriesmag 2015 07 World War II alternate histories tend to follow the same formula Usually they are set in a world where the Axis are victorious and may or may not have occupied Britain and or the United States Occasionally you will see something different, usually along the lines of the war itself being fought differently instead of focusing on the nightmare outcome I previously mentioned A good example of this is Acts of War by James Young.Now Acts of War is actual [...]

    5. I suppose this book is classified as science fiction, but I feel uncomfortable with that designation Alternate history is usually included as a subgenre of science fiction, but it has been argued that it really deserves a separate genre of its own and I tend to agree Science fiction is speculative fiction, but there are several kinds of speculative fiction By speculative fiction it is meant that there is the implied question of what if and after the word if is a fantastic supposition A fantastic [...]

    6. Hitler s death makes things worse October 25, 2015This review is from Acts of War The Usurper s War Book 1 Kindle Edition We often speculate about the death and suffering which could have been avoided by the early death of Adolph Hitler In this alternate history Hitler s death does not come early enough World War Two is already underway, the Nazis remain in power with the vicious, evil Heinrich Himmler at the helm These events are used to paint a dark picture of what could have happened includin [...]

    7. Binge reading.I am a WWII buff, my Dad served in Europe, and I enjoy alternate fiction Harry Turtletaub has some great entries in this genre, but Young s tale is less sci fi Ina world where the US is still neutral in 1942 and England has sued for peace, essentially handing over their military capacity to the Reich Japan still decides to attack Pearl Harbor, in March, 1942 Enter the Cobbs, 4 brothers and a sister, the former all I the service, all in Hawaii They bring associated friends, brothers [...]

    8. EXCELLENT THIS GUY CAN TELL A STORY I have read both the short book and this book, and this is an author of great promise Despite minor editing glitches throughout, James Young has the storyteller s touch He creates characters that feel human flaws and all This talented storyteller s characters draw you in and you care what happens to them This is what makes these stories special Totally worth your time Really.

    9. Wow As alternate history novels go, this one is right at the top A great story, with great action great character development, people that the reader cannot help cheering for, and even the good guys putting the egocentric windbags in place This author can easily move in circles with the likes of W.E.B Griffin and other great storytellers.

    10. More, Great story Great characters Give us a sequel I love the brothers A very good alternate history I think I will explore his other works.
