Product description

The Second World War was turned on its head at the moment Admiral Kolhammer's ultra-modern stealth warships were hurled back through time from 2021. But no one could have predicted just how much of a nightmare would ensue...Only months after the Transition, the great powers scramble to develop the weapons of tomorrow. The year 1942 is now a world of crude jet fighters, monstrous attack helicopters, and unholy dirty bombs - a mongrel technology, born decades prematurely. Then, in a radical rewriting of history, Japanese forces sweep into Australia, foreign agents begin a campaign of terror in the USA, and Germany prepares for an all-out attack on Britain. The twenty-first-century forces must resort to the most extreme measures yet and face a future rife with possibilities - all of them apocalyptic...Picking up from where he left off with "Weapons of Choice", John Birmingham shocks and awes us with this gripping second installment in the "Axis of Time" trilogy.

Review quote

Praise for Weapons of Choice: 'An excellent page-turner' FHM 'Breathless plotting, catholic geekery and the central premise suggest great things for the next two volumes' Daily Telegraph 'If there was a Booker for explosive alternative history techno-thrillers with guts and brains, it would be a cinch' Sydney Morning Herald
