Aftershocks (Colonization, Book 3) by Harry Turtledove

World War II. The great powers were at one anothers throats. Armies clashed across rolling countryside. Air forces sowed death from above. Then, in 1942, everything changed. A new front opened in World War IIwhen an alien race attacked the Earth . . . In his extraordinary alternate-history epic, Harry Turtledove created the acclaimed Worldwar saga. Now, in the Colonization series, what began as war has evolved into decades of epic struggles and rebellions erupting against the invaders known as the Race. As the 1960s begins, one of the great powers explodes a nuclear strike against the Races colonization fleet. As she did a generation before, Germany goes to war over Poland, this time against the Race. Retaliation is swift and deadly, leaving much of the Third Reich in ruins. The United States has used its fast-developing military technology to lock the invaders into a standoff. And in China, the ragtag revolutionary army of Mao Tse-tungarmed with Russian-supplied, German-made weaponsmay prove the Races most intractable enemy of all. On Earth, the alien invaders find themselves confronting a far more complex and difficult species than any they have encountered before. From the hatred between the Jews and the Deutsche to the irrepressible inventiveness of human technology, the reptilian invaders realize they have met creatures that cannot be tamed. Ultimately, only superior firepower may keep Earth under the Empires controlor may destroy the world. Despite its military superiority, the Race still fears it underestimates its foes. While uprisings and aftershocks of war shake the planet, while the Races troops are undermined by ginger addiction, one nation plots a stunning counterattack. With its sprawling cast of characters, startling plot twists, and uncanny sense of history, Colonization: Aftershocks is another marvelous achievement from Harry Turtledovethe author USA Today calls the leading author of alternate history.
