Don't mind me, just dropping off my Turtledove review:

Just finished reading "After the Downfall", and enjoyed it very much as usual with Harry Turtledove's books. But I would like to point out one technical error concerning the weapon Pemsel had. The machine pistol he had was referred to as a Schmeisser, when it is actually an MP-40. That is a common error as Hugo Scmeisser did not develop the MP-40, but he did have a patent on the MP-40's magazine. The Schmeisser name was stamped on the magazine, so when captured by American troops they mistakenly called the MP-40 a Schmeisser.

Sorry to miss you Mak, I would have enjoyed a get-together but I guess it's too late now. I've pretty much lost interest in our little board land but I do still work on Turtlewiki. I came in here today out of a morbid sense of curiosity but I'm the fartherst thing in the world from regular here. Turtle Reader, it sounds like you want to have a real, honest to God intelligent discussion on Turtledove's works. I'm afraid you're in the wrong place. No one's used this board for anything worthwhile in years.

Just finished reading 'Breakthroughs' and 'Blood and Iron'. Sort of surprised. With the CSA recruting blacks and giving them voting rights I thought Turtledove would take the stance that adversity breeds a new nation, and the CS survives. Then Germany and the US, what with having so many communists and the US having problems with Mormons would be like the Nazis in real life. Then the Allies would defeat them in WWII. But I'm guessing thats not how it goes. Would be good, though.
The CSA/Nazi thing isn't as believable, since blacks are so numerous, important economically, and armed. Jews were far fewer, like Mormons, and so easier to get rid of.
Nice try on his part though.

well I voted for McCain And I feel cheated...the only reason I voted for him is Because Of Sarah Palin and Nut Ball and after the campaign McCain ran I think He was running to Lose so Obama would win I hope Palin wasn't in on the fraud becuase if she was the only way America will survive is if a majority of Americans Form A militia....We don't need some Obama National Security Force for Us!!
