Colonization: Second Contact

by Harry Turtledove

I had already picked this book up at the library sale, so I figured I'd go ahead and read it anyway. Despite the fact that I was unimpressed by the first volume of the preceding Worldwar tetralogy, I found my interest piqued by this sequel. The 1960s start with the planet Earth being shared by humanity and "The Race", reptilian aliens who tried to conquer the planet in 1942. The Race's colonization fleet arrives to discover that their invasion fleet hasn't quite tamed the planet for them. There's a number of intrigues between humans and aliens, as well as the various factions of humanity: principally the Americans, the Soviets and the Third Reich. Guess I'll be getting the other books in the series and trying to forget the spoilers I read online.

I'll be checking them all out, I guess.
