Review by: resonant on March 07, 2014 :
Well done, and better than Robert Conroy's "1901", which also involved the Kaiser impulsively directing German forces elsewhere.

There were a few anachronisms - for example, "Better Living Through Chemistry" wasn't Dupont's slogan until the 1930s. However, there was nothing glaring, and nothing that detracted from the story.

Review by: Scott Skipper on June 24, 2013 :

"Grey Tide in the East" brilliantly depicts how the whim of an Emperor could easily change one detail of history resulting in global consequences. Andrew J. Heller meticulously and intelligently describes the likely outcome of World War I had Kaiser Wilhelm II decided not to attack France through Belgium. This well researched tweaking of true events reads plausibly and convincingly, and examines the ramifications of that single, possible, alteration of fact from a worldwide perspective.

This book will appeal to all who are fond of history, alternative history, historical fiction and the Great War. This story craves a sequel.
