In a world that has already felt the soul-shattering blow of the Great War, North America in 1934 is the powder keg that could ignite another global conflict.The Victorious Opposition is a drama of leaders and followers, spies and traitors, lovers and soldiers.

When the Viking lander on the planet Minerva is destroyed, sending back one last photo of a strange alien being, scientists on Earth are stunned. And so a joint investigation - by the USA and Russia - is launched, the first long-distance manned space mission and a symbol of the new peace between old rivals. Humankind's first close encounter with extraterrestrials will be history in the making, and the two teams are schooled in diplomacy as well as in science. But nothing prepares them for alien war - especially when the Americans and the Russinas find themselves on opposite sides. The bestselling author of the Worldwar and Colonisation sequences has once again set up an epic story of conflict in an alternate world of 'what if?' and 'what could be'. 'The wizard of If.'

The first volume of the American Empire trilogy from Harry Turtledove, "The Wizard of If".As Turtledove's brilliant series The Great War came to its end, the United States of America, in alliance with Germany, had defeated Great Britain, France and the Confederate States of America in a bloody conflict known as the First World War.Now as the 1920s begin, though, the seeds of a new conflict have already been sown. The United States, led by Theodore Roosevelt, swings wildly towards socialism. In Canada - now a US colony - nationalist terrorists strike against the new American oppressors. But it is in the Confederacy, trapped in a ruinous economic depression, where fascism begins to spread, and the fires are fanned by a charismatic leader who may again plunge the world into war.

But the United States remains pinned between their weakened southern rival, and their other bitter enemy, Canada. But both Presidents - Theodore Roosevelt of the Union and staunch Confederate Woodrow Wilson - are stubbornly determined to lead their nations to victory, at any cost. Meanwhile the new and poisonous weapons of tanks, gas and planes are starting to make their presence felt at the front. It's total war for the first time in human history and it's ordinary people on both sides who are the ones to begin suffer . . . 'The wizard of If.'
