* HumansAreSpecial: Just try to count the number of times in the ''[[Literature/Worldwar]]'' series that a member of the alien Race bemoans how different humans are to the Race themselves or their other subject species. Go on. We'll wait.

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: In the second Hot War novel ''Fallout'', one of the presidential candidates is Joe McCarthy, whose portrayal is reminiscent of how many see Creator/DonaldTrump in the U.S. 2016 election.

** Baseball references also frequently pop up in Turtledove's work. Sometimes he'll even stretch to fit in a baseball analogy, such as in the latest installment of ''The Hot War'' in which President Truman mentally compares chicken served at a political fundraising event to a mediocre ballplayer--and even ''lists the stats'' that make the ballplayer mediocre. This is the ''first'' time baseball has been mentioned in the first two books of this series.

* NoSuchThingAsWizardJesus: In his apparently one-and-only example of work in the "secret-history" genre, the short story ''Under St. Peter's'', he reveals that Jesus actually became a vampire (and not even the first vampire), who in addition, may not have been really divine after all.

* AuthorTract: Defied in two short stories in ''Atlantis and Other Places''. "Bedfellows", which features a gay wedding between UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush and UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden, is a scathing TakeThat against the then-current president. The next story, "News from the Front" is an equally scathing, only somewhat less thinly-veiled TakeThat against Bush's detractors, particularly in the media. Both of these stories are written quite convincingly, conveying the impression that the author is an anti-war liberal in the first one, and a hawkish conservative in the second one. In his preface to "News from the Front, Turtledove, quoting Creator/LarryNiven, states that "there is a technical term for those who judge writers' politics by what they turn out. That term is 'idiot'."
