Summary
It is 1943, the third summer of the new war between the Confederate States of America and the United States. CSA President Featherstone has miscalculated the North's resilience. In Ohio, where Confederate victory was once almost certain, Featherstone's army is crumbling, and reinforcements of uninspired Mexican troops cannot stanch a Northern assault on the heartland. The tide of war is changing, and victory seems within the grasp of the USA. Still, new fighting flares from Denver to Los Angeles. As air, ground, and water burn with molten fury, new and demonic tools of killing are unleashed. The U.S. government in Philadelphia has proof that Featherstone is murdering African Americans by the thousands in a Texas gulag. And the leaders of both sides know that the world's next great power will not be the one with the biggest army but the nation that smashes open the power of the atom.--From publisher description
