Coup D’Etat by Harry Turtledove

This is a compilation of vignettes of soldiers fighting an alternate history World War II.  

I am normally a very big Turtledove fan.  Not so much on this book.  It covered many of the WWII fronts and the lives of the men and women who suffered through war.  Turtledove had good character studies, as always.

What was missing from this book was any kind of plot if you ignore the fact that WWII could be identified as the plot.  Nothing fit together; you just couldn’t tie all the character studies into a visual whole.   I kept expecting to see some masterful pulling together of separate threads to make a garment that I would happily donned.  It never happened.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
