Drive to the East

The next book in the Settling Accounts series from Harry Turtledove will be published soon, it is called Drive to the East.

The thrilling sequel to RETURN ENGAGEMENTS – the next part in this fascinating alternate history series by the creator of AMERICAN EMPIRE and WORLDWAR. It is 1942, and the Confederate States of America are locked in a tangle of jagged, blood-soaked battle lines with the United States of America. In Richmond, dictator Jake Featherston is shocked by what his own aircraft have done in Philadelphia – killing U. S. president Al Smith in a barrage of bombs. But he presses ahead with a secret plan on the dusty plains of Texas, where a so-called detention camp hides a far more evil purpose. The United States face a furious thrust by Confederate army into Pennsylvania. But with the industrial heartland under siege, Canada in revolt and US ships fighting against the Japanese in the Sandwich Islands, the most dangerous place in the world may be overlooked.

Drive to the East

Though from the covers I do prefer the UK version.

The UK covers seem to have a theme of using actual World War Two hardware with Confederate colours, maybe this is something that wouldn’t wash in the US.

Settling Accounts: Drive to the East is published on the 9th August in the US and on the 10th October in the UK, though Amazon will sell you the US edition in the UK from the 9th August.

Buy Drive to the East from Amazon.
