Action-packed, sometimes humorous, sometime harrowing & disturbing, always page-turning and entertaining final instalment in Harry Turtledove's Cold War/Korean War/WWIII alternate history trilogy, "The Hot War."

Armistice is the third book in the alternate history series “The Hot War”, in which the Korean War goes nuclear. I have previously read Bombs Away and Fallout (The Hot War #1 and #2), and many of Harry Turtledove’s other alternate histories – particularly the “The Great War/American Empire/Settli...

Always enjoy alternate history, what if being one of my favorite subjects. Turtledove is one of the best at it so I'm really happy when I get a new one from him. This one is a good ending to the series and is typical Turtledove. If you enjoy pondering what if one thing changed, how would the worl...

First off, this is my first novel by Turtledove, who I've heard about for years. I used to teach US and Latin American history, so I really got a kick out of the deft blending of actual historical actors/events with fantasy.
I greatly enjoyed almost everything about this book. The only reason I am...

I have to admit that I've been a fan of Harry Turtledove's for over thirty years and read quite a number of his books and short stories. And given how prolific a writer he is, that is saying a lot.
I found Hot War: Armistice a good read. The plots are well done and Turtledove is a master of keepin...

The first Turtledove novel that I felt might not have been necessary.
Turtledove started the trilogy with a brilliant alternate history premise I've never seen before -- what if Harry Truman had granted Douglas MacArthur's request to use atomic bombs in Manchuria during the Korean War? Since the o...

Third book in a substandard Turtledove series, began with premise of using A-Bomb on Chinese in 1950s Korean war.
Turtledove is usually a good read but this series He made USSR too powerful, it is KNOWN in 1950 USA had 299 A Bombs, USSR only had 5, in 1951 USA had well over 500 where USSR (includi...

I almost gave up on Harry Turtledove’s Hot War alternate history – which postulates that Harry Truman authorized the use of nuclear weapons early in the Korean War – because volume one, “Bombs Away,” was so unremittingly grim. But I stuck with it through “Fallout” and the conclusion, “Armistice”...
