Here are some of my favourite Turtledove novels. Eventually we will have detailed reviews of them all.

One of his earlier books, Guns of the South, is set during the American Civil War, though this time the Confederates are armed with AK-47 Assault Rifles... As might be imagined the impact of such a deadly weapon on troops armed with Springfield Rifles is pretty clear cut.

The Confederates, finding the AK-47 a more than decent replacement for their rifles and smoothbore muskets, easily win any firefight... Buy it now from amazon.co.uk

This novel makes the assumption that following the Civil War, America remained divided.

In 1881, a generation after the South won the Civil War, the peace is shattered. Furious over the annexation of American territory, the United States declares total war against the Confederacy. In this second American Civil War the times, stake and battle lines have changed - and so has history. Buy it now from amazon.co.uk

On the western front, the Confederacy struggles to overcome defeat, dissension, and Weimar-level inflation, and the U.S. labors to stay on top of things and prepare for the next round of combat.
