John Barnes is an odd author he writes hard science fiction but his field of science is sociology So you get all this interesting speculation about why societies behave the way they do This book is a non stop action thriller that takes the protagonist into an alternate timeline where Nazis won World War II He is an action hero a well educated bodyguard who kills bad guys like a video game or a movie like Die Hard so there is a lot of violence some of it described in detail Overall it was entertaining but a bit of a guilty pleasure It was a less real world than some of Barnes other booksA friend tried to get me to read this in college but I had some strange prejudices about real time travel and didn t pick it up at the time

I like most John Barnes novels Patton s Spaceship is no exception It s got an interesting premise that has endless possibilities and I can definitely see the potential for seuels of which there is at least one that I know of I know because I have it and have read itIn this book Pittsburgh art historian Mark Strang s mainly happy life ends on a holiday weekend when a terrorist group called Blade of the Most Merciful attacks his family His father is an academic expert on terrorism They kill his pregnant wife his brother and permanently maim his sister He and his father escape with minor injuries Strang s life is changed foreverStrange discovers a new passion a combination of revenge and protection of innocents He founds a bodyguard company hires some good muscle apparently is well trained for an art historian and carries a big 191145 One of the first times we run into him in this book is when he and his crew are trying to protect a young girl maybe 10 12 named Porter and her mother from her psycho father Why her father is so psycho is not totally clear to me But it gets pretty hairy there for a bit He helps her escape though Porter we are told is to play a major role in the future At times I felt like I was readingwatching The Terminator But I never uite discovered what was so important about her Odd After some time he meets another professor in his office named Harry Skena Skena is a front man for a group representing the ATN a group fighting to keep The Closers aliens from controlling different universe timelines The Blade terrorist group was a front for the Closers who want to conuer our timeline Eager to strike back at those responsible for the Blade s terrorism Mark agrees to help the ATN after thinking through how surreal everything seems yet how it s all making sense after thinking it throughBefore he knows it he and Skena are in another timeline or rather he is because Skena s dead and he s trapped there with no way back In this timeline he uickly learned that it s the 1960s and that Hitler and the Axis won World War II and dominate the globe and he better learn how to act in a world gone mad uickly or he ll wind up deadThere is a free zone though in southeast Asia of all places Barnes does a good job of describing a conuered America and the last defenders of the Allies when Strang arrives in the US In the free zone he later enjoys having Strange meet his heroes such as General Patton and help them make an effort to fight the Axis And what Strang brings to his new colleagues is knowledge Future knowledge of future technology Like flight Rockets Perhaps bombs Many things He doesn t view himself as overly technical or knowledgeable but just getting ideas across to the Allied scientists does a world of good so he s a huge help Some of the chapters have uite a bit of action and there s plenty of excitement to be had Of course there s a big climactic ending I won t go into what or how things happen or end but you can use your imagination It s fairly satisfying I d say very satisfying actually After reading this book I looked forward to the seuel While I don t view this as a five star book I view this as a solid four star book certainly worth reading by anyone who enjoys alternative histories and time travel Recommended
