Tensions mount at flashpoints girdling the globe, till battle erupts over an Anglo-French disagreement at Fashoda in 1898. Battles on land and at sea are waged on a scale by no means sooner than seen—including a Royal army raid laying waste to Boston and long island City—before peace is restored .in 1901.

Now in quantity Two—Bloodshed Universal-Slavery Triumphant—King and Bredehoft chronicle an alternative "Great struggle of 1914-1918" whose scope and devastation drastically exceeds the realm warfare considered one of our heritage. on the finish Imperial Germany emerges grasp of Europe, seconded via a revivified Habsburg dominion. Reminded by means of accomplice experts that “Slav” stocks a linguistic root with "slave," and encouraged through the Confederacy's emergence as a workable version for business and army improvement in accordance with human bondage, Germany and Austria-Hungary restoration serfdom to the Eurasian hearyland. A horrified nice Britain, appalled on the Germanic Frankenstein's monster it has unleashed, needs to now flip to its former enemy the USA, and make universal reason opposed to Berlin's pursuit of absolute weltmacht.
