Colonisation: Aftershocks

Fiction, Science fiction, Fantasy, Historical fiction

Halfway through World War II aliens invaded Earth. They were repelled - but now, years later they are back . . . This is the third volume in the three-part Colonisation series, which follows the Worldwar trilogy, Colonisation: Second Contact and Colonisation: Down to Earth. The whole sequence will conclude with Homeward Bound.

Humanity is still locked in a battle for supremacy with the conquering alien invaders, the Race. The German Reich has finally been subdued and the Race believe it only to be a matter of time before the rest of the planet follows suit. However, they underestimate humanity's desire for freedom and the lengths they will go to gain it.
With America and Russia holding the alien invaders off in a technological standoff, the disorganised red armies of Mao Tse-tung's revolutionaries causing havoc and the ever-increasing dependence of the Race on the addictive substance ginger, the Empire realises that the colonisation of Earth may only be achieved through its total destruction.

Praise for Colonisation: Aftershocks

  • With shocking vividness, Turtledove demonstrates the extreme fragility of our modern world . . . This is state-of-the-art alternate history, nothing less - Publishers Weekly on HOW FEW REMAIN)

  • Turtledove plays heady games with actual history, scattering object lessons and bitter ironies along the way. Strong, complex characters against a sweeping alt-historical background. - Kirkus Reviews on RETURN ENGAGEMENTS

  • Good fun. It has an authentic speculative quality, energy and dash. - Time Out on A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE

  • Engrossing ... definitely the work of one of alternate history's authentic modern masters . . . totally fascinating. - Booklist on THE GREAT WAR series
