Added DiffLines:

* ObfuscatingStupidity: The various al-Nouris in ''Stalin's Hammer''. They all behave in a stereotypical "dumb and friendly Middle Eastern official" manner, but Julia isn't fooled for a moment, seeing keen minds and plenty of experience behind this facade.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''Stalin's Hammer'', the USSR has [[spoiler:{{Kill Sat}}s that obliterate the forward defensive NATO positions before moving in with the ground troops and other satellites that blow up Western spy sats. In response, "Slim Jim" Davidson's lawyer (secretly working for Kolhammer) activates the secret secondary mode of Davidson's satellites, which proceed to wipe out most of the Soviet {{Kill Sat}}s]].

Added DiffLines:

* DesignatedGirlFight: In ''Stalin's Hammer'', two temp women with uptimer combat training engage in a fight. Subverted in that there isn't any stereotypical hair-pulling or scratching. The fight is brutal, precise, and deadly. [[spoiler:The American woman comes out on top, killing the Stasi woman]].

* FictionFiveHundred: By ''Stalin's Hammer'', "Slim Jim" Davidson is the wealthiest man in the world, having had the foresight to study future knowledge in order to capitalize on it before everyone else. In this reality, he's a mix of Bill Gates and Elon Musk, with his various ventures being at the bleeding edge of technology. His personal goal is [[AsteroidMiners asteroid mining]], although the technology is still decades away from that.

* KillSat: ''Stalin's Hammer'' starts with an orbital kinetic bombardment weapon system being tested by the Soviets... in 1953. This is a counter to the West's superior nuke production. The fact that Soviet factories are cranking out ''thousands'' of tungsten rods to be used for the weapon system implies that a whole network of these is in development.

Additionally, the USSR has also launched a number of anti-sat satellites, designed to destroy Western spy satellites. [[spoiler:As it turns out, Kolhammer's people have secretly turned "Slim Jim" Davidson's satellite networks into secret anti-sat satellites]].


Added DiffLines:

* WorldWarThree: With Stalin determined to avoid the mistakes of the past (e.g. a prolonged ColdWar), it seems inevitable that it will inevitably happen. [[spoiler:The Cold War goes hot near the end of ''Stalin's Hammer'', although it's not nuclear year]].
