Interview with John Birmingham, author of Designated Targets. When I wrote the first version of Weapons, which was called World War ., the Multinational Force arrived in 1946, in an alternate world where the Axis had triumphed. Question: Designated Targets is the second in your Axis of Time trilogy, following Weapons of Choice. I wrote about forty or fifty thousand words of that scenario but eventually changed it to the real 1942. My point of divergence was Roosevelt dying of polio in his childhood.

It’s World War II and the A-bomb is here to stay. The only question: Who’s going to drop it first?

The second in John Birminghams brilliant trilogy. The drama continues at a breathtaking pace. Birmingham continues to peel away our rose-tinted remembrances of the past with his excellent juxtaposition of a near-future 'now' with the World of the forties.

Fans of military as a genre should love this book for its hard core (and sometimes gorily detailed) battle scenes and it's devotion to the realities & stupidities of War. SF fans should be intrigued by the near-future-meets-past scenarios and everyone with any semblance of an open mind should read the no holds barred upfront reminder of the prejudices of our (all too near) forebears and be impressed and appalled in equal measure.

I've now read this book (and the other two) at least three times. Frankly, I've lost count; I simply can't stop enjoying the novels. I think my only criticism would be "John, why can't you write a 4th book in this World-view". Please? Please!!

Birminghams trilogy is outstanding and rates as one of my all time favorites! A very well created scenario with great characterization and plot development. This and the other 2 books in the series will keep you enthralled and sleep deprived.

Excellent read - great alternative history weaving together 21st century technology and society with 1940s historical setting. Fast paced with good detail.

A great follow on from the first book. Excellent enjoyable read. Events unfold at a pace that can be digested and understood without feeling carried away on a tide of information.

Very exciting book, I liked it so much I read it in two sittings.
I had problems with Kindle for PC's, Amazom were most helpful.
