9781451638219: 1636: The Saxon Uprising (The Ring of Fire)

A new addition to the four-time New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series. After carving a place for itself among the struggling powers of 17th century Western Europe, the “out-of-time” modern town of Grantville, West Virginia must fight for its life against Dark Age domination.

Alternate history master Eric Flint returns in top form with an epic addition to the multiple New York Times best selling Ring of Fire series.  A cosmic accident sets the modern town of Grantville, West Virginia, down in war-torn seventeenth century Europe and a new nation is forged.  Now when United States of Europe ally King Gustavas of Sweden invades Poland, the U.S. of E. is dragged into a full-scale European war against ruthless opponents. Meanwhile Mike Stearns, wily and courageous leader of the up-time West Virginians, has been turned out of office in an election. But, like Churchill (before and after him) Stearns is not done yet.   He’s determined to stoke the fires of democratic rebellion in Saxony near the main front, and thus keep the young nation he founded, and once led, out of the hands of medieval tyrants–tyrants who would like nothing better than to wipe those troublesome upstarts from the future off the timeline and go back to the bad old days of oppression and serfdom.

Book Description Baen Books, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. The West Virginia town of Grantville, torn from the twentieth century and hurled back into seventeenth century Europe, has allied with Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, in the United States of Europe. So, when Gustavus invades Poland, managing to unite all the squabbling Polish factions into repelling the common enemy, the time-lost Americans have to worry about getting dragged into the fight along with the Swedish forces. But Mike Stearns has another problem. He was Prime Minister of the USE until he lost an election, and now he s one of Gustavus generals; and he has demonstrated that he s very good at being a general. And he s about to really need all his military aptitude. Gretchen, who never saw a revolution she didn t like, has been arrested in Saxony, and is likely to be executed! The revolutionary groups which she has been working with are not about to let that happen, and suddenly there s rioting in the streets. So Gustavus orders Mike Stearns to go to Saxony and restore order. But he makes one mistake. He didn t tell Mike to take his troops along on the mission. But he didn t tell him not to, either.
