Overview
The ultimate time travel thriller -- genre-busting and epic in every way.
There is only the war.
Otto Behr is a German agent, fighting his Russian counterparts across three millennia, manipulating history for moments in time that can change everything. Only the remnants of two great nations stand and for Otto, the war is life itself, the last hope for his people. But in a world where realities shift and memory is never constant, nothing is certain, least of all the chance of a future with his Russian love."

This ambitious epic is a sad flop. After time travel is discovered in the 28th century, Germany and Russia lock themselves in a never-ending battle to alter history on a genocidal scale, each determined to eliminate the other entirely. Otto Behr, one of Germany’s top soldiers in this war, struggles to keep his side alive from the Middle Ages to the future. Wingrove (the Chung Kuo series) makes it clear that readers aren’t supposed to root for his protagonists, who actively work to help Hitler murder Jews and are outrageously misogynistic, reducing women to brood mares. Otto’s lust for the women he meets does nothing to mollify this. Since the characters are so oppressively unlikable, it’s difficult to appreciate the discussion of how history turns on small decisions or Wingrove’s willingness to tackle time travel paradoxes head-on. Reading about the odious Otto handily demonstrates time dilation: even a few hours of it feels like an eternity. (Apr.)
