The Shiloh Project

Rating
Before Harry Turtledove and Cherie Priest There was THE SHILOH PROJECT "The uneasy peace that has existed for more than 100 years between the Confederate States and the United States may be over...." -- Civil War Times The South won at Gettysburg in 1863. Today the Mason-Dixon Wall divides Union and Confederacy . . . and many other things are different from the world we know. There was no Russian Revolution and no World War Two. The Wright brothers died in fiery crashes, and gigantic Zeppelins cruise the skies. Nevertheless, a shaky peace has prevailed between North and South. For decades now, steaming endlessly up and down the North American coast from the Antilles to Nova Scotia, the Great Line has been the guarantor of the policy (formulated by Winston Churchill in 1955) of "containment" of the expansionist Yankees and their Czarist Russian allies. Each modern line-of-battle ship takes seventeen years to build and strains the resources of its sponsor government. Only now . . . that ring of guns and steel may be broken. For the Union has a powerful new weapon, tested on Yokohama during the just-concluded Yankee-Japanese War. Unless the Confederacy can obtain its secret for the Empire, the long balance of terror may tip into global disaster. Only Colonel Aubrey Lee Quidley IV, Confederate States Army Intelligence, knows of the Shiloh Project's existence. Until the leak. In a police-state South, there are those who want disaster for their own ends. The vengeful "conditionally emancipated" Resistance . . . the fascist, genocidal Kuklos League . . . and a beautiful Yankee mole inside the highest levels of the Richmond Government. Together, they'll turn Quidley's mission into a treacherous triangle of conspiracy, betrayal, and chaos. Whoever wins, the Confederacy will never be the same. . . .
