The second book in the World War 2.2 series covers the acceptance of 21st Century technology in both America and Germany in progressing the War. It illustrates a number of setbacks faced by the Allies including the invasion of northern Australia by the Japanese.
Based largely on actual events on other Japanese occupied countries, it attempts to show what may have happened to the civilian population had invasion occurred and also the problems faced by the invading force with over extended supply lines, guerilla warfare and the limited military resources available to slow the invading forces.
It also describes the creation of a special zone in the US to replicate technology and the social issues faced by US society in accepting a markedly different society. Issues described include inter-racial acceptance, female equality and the temptation to use historical knowledge for personal benefit.
Definitely a thought provoking book developed on a world stage. Brilliant thumbnail sketches of historical persons and how they react to a completely new and different society.
