Blood & Iron, by Harry Turtledove

  • Title:  Blood & Iron
  • Author:  Harry Turtledove
  • Borrowed from Montgomery County, MD Public Library Audiobook
  • Started: 7/19/2020
  • Finished: 7/29/2020
This book had a few enjoyable payoffs after several books in the series had clearly been leading up to a few major plot points.  Probably the most satisfying was Sylvia Enos killing the man who murdered her husband (torpedoed his boat after the war was over).  You knew it was coming but it will still immensely satisfying.

With much embarrassment I had to admit I confused two of the canadian characters (one in Manitoba, the other Quebec) and was confused as to which had unsuccessfully thrown a bomb at Custer.  No matter what, and no matter how much of the plot is telegraphed in these novels, they're very enjoyable.
