Gibson has given us a compelling and enjoyable way to witness history. Fans of alternate history, social media, and history itself will find a treasure trove in this face-paced, eminently readable and well researched volume written in hypothetical tweets.

A Myrt's Review A Unique Perspective on a Historical Event I liked the use of social media as the narrative structure in retelling this significant time in history. I read the other two books in this series that focused on Berlin and Tokyo in '45 and I found using Twitter as the format for the story to be an intriguing story telling device. Obviously, there requires a certain suspension of disbelief as not all such messages would have realistically been sent on a public forum. However, I found the book was a great way to familiarize myself with a point in time that I really didn't know many details about. I think it would make a great way to introduce someone to this momentous time in world history. I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
