STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER
First in a trilogy which tells the story of a midth century war that never happened. Emotions in Washington and London escalate. In this astounding epic of alternate history--a powerful blend of fact, fiction, and strategic possibilities--Harry Harrison poses a provocative what if scenario that would have changed the outcome of the U. Civil War--and the course of history. The result is an exciting, action-packed, hugely entertaining novel of war and weaponry on both sides of the Atlantic. England responded with rage. The looming crisis was defused by the peace-minded Prince Albert.

Some books, such as the Tsouras, focus on the military aspects of the war, while books like Ward Moore's Bring the Jubilee look at the social ramifications. Although set firmly during the war, Harry Harrison's novel Stars and Stripes Forever , the first of a proposed trilogy, examines the political changes caused by his point of divergence. For his branch point, Harrison has elected to use the Trent Affair, in which Charles Wilkes, an American Captain, stopped the British mail carrier Trent and seized two Confederates who were on their way to England to seek British assistance. In our world, Prince Albert helped diffuse the affair shortly before his death.
