One more book review

I forgot about the book I just finished today... It's one of the ones I picked up in my $5 bag from the West Boylston library.

10. Alternate Generals, a compilation edited by Harry Turtledove.
All the stories are good, full of alternate history and military fiction, but I wish there had been an introduction to the book as a whole and/or an introduction to each story. As it is, I found myself looking up a lot of people on Wikipedia, asking "how is this different from the way it really happened?" Maybe I'm just not a good enough student of history. I doubt I'll read it again, but it's a B

If anyone's interested in this book, I'd be happy to give it away.
