a techno-thriller like no other book. I am an avid reader of alternate history novels and Harold W. Coyle has set the bar way above the rest that I have read. After finishing the book, his style of alternate history put him in the same league as Harry Turtledove and Robert Conroy. Being a former armored officer has given Harold a better insight as to the inner workings of a team and therefore also given him a unique perspective when he wrote this book... a great piece of literature and all those who start it will have trouble putting it down until they are finished. (Armor Modeler Preservation Society)

While one might wonder at the need to revise and update fiction, this is done because of new facts revealed about each side's plans and strategies, so it offers a revision based on the latest knowledge of events and behind-the-scenes politics on both sides. While newcomers will thoroughly appreciate Team Yankee, prior fans of the old version will find this new remake adds more depth and information, and will appreciate its revealing perspective.
