Publisher's Summary

A compelling alternate-history novel by the breakout author of WWII-era alternate history Himmler's War and Rising Sun

The British win the American Revolutionary War, and a desperate Washington and the American founders must make a last stand in an enclave called Liberty.

In 1781, George Washington's attempt to trap the British under Cornwallis at Yorktown ends catastrophically when the French fleet is destroyed in the Battle of the Capes. The revolution collapses, and the British begin a bloody reign of terror. A group of rebels flees westward and sets up a colony near what is now Chicago. They call it Liberty. The British, looking to finish what they started, send a very large force under Burgoyne to destroy them. Burgoyne is desperate for redemption and the Americans are equally desperate to survive.

Had the Battle of the Capes gone differently, a changed, darker New World would have been forced into existence. But even under those dire circumstances, Liberty may still find a way!

Why

I really like the story and the characters were real enough, but why so much graphic sex? I only made it through the first few chapters and had to stop.

Bronson, just... no.

This is one of the few Audible purchases that I’ve made over the past 10 years where I’ve actually had to force myself to finish. One of only reasons I did finish is because I just had to write a review and didn’t want to be a hypocrite by not completing this... ‘book’.

Amazing

It started out boring but my god I can not recommend this book enough. The performance made me love the characters and the ending itself was amazing. I recommend this 10/10

Alternate History at its Best!

I have been a fan of Robert Conroy's work since I read Castro's Bomb many years ago. I love how Bronson Pinchot brought the characters to life and how Conroy manages to convey the vile hostility of the British Government in the colonies with the determination of the rebels. I wish all of his novels were available as audiobooks. I would buy them in a heartbeat!!!

Give me Liberty or I'll try aging

Warning: Grapic Sexual content and torture

The story should have gave a warning to the above subject has I thought this was an alternate history novel but authour really went into showing how different historical figures could be with events differed to how we knew them. Has I listened the authour stuck yo a few Figures in American history lay giving reasons to why others had little parts do I think he should giving Gerogie Washington his POV in his finale moments. There are also the Native Americans who the author should alot biased towards in the novel by ignoring there parts in the american revolution and has he shiwed chacthers has they appeared either has scheming cowards or blood thirsty warriors. I believe the novel should been longer are expaned into a book series has in my opinion the authour tryed to do everything in one novel.

Great story, not the best narrator

This is the second Robert Conroy book I have listened to on audible. I have not read any of his books, so my experiences with the author are all audiobooks.

When reading an alternate history you have to be ready for things to happen in the story that don’t fit what you know and are comfortable with. I was almost shocked right from the beginning of this book, and didn’t like what he did, but that’s the author’s prerogative. Even with that I really liked the story, and nothing in it seemed so far fetched that it would not be a plausible alternate history.

My only disappointment with this book was the narration. It is not that it is horrible, but I had just finished listening to 1901 right before I started listening to this book. I think the narration in 1901 was much better which led to a little let down with the narration of 1784. Even so it doesn’t ruin the story, and overall this was an enjoyable listen

Absolutely perverted and disgusting

Although some may enjoy listening to graphic sex and enjoy that stuff I found the storyline average at best but the various sex scenes and other sexual in nature deeds were just too much. However what made me the most disgusted with this book is the pedophilia in this book where the author describes a full grown man raping a 12 year old. This is too much why is this book even allowed? Gross and sickening

Outstanding

This is what alternate history should be. Robert Conroy absolutely mastered this story and Bronson Pinchot delivers a great performance.

Crap

What utter crap!
Characters are cartoon two dimensional at best. The sex scenes are best skipped altogether, rather embarrassing actually. Benidict Arnold is a minor character that could of been explored more. Washington is removed very early in the book. Banastre Tarleton is both stupid and a murderer. The British are portrayed as evil and rather stupid at times. The French enter their revolution early which I don't think would of happened as economics at the time had to play out. The Americans are noble good men and the women hardy. This piece of fiction is ridiculous and formulaic. The ending is unbelievable and to be honest, I had trouble finishing this book. Why is it that Americans still push 'the lie' of the the revolution. Why not just tell the truth and look at it objectively to learn from it rather than glory in the fiction.
