A cycle of six {{Doorstopper}} books by HarryTurtledove which covers the story of WorldWarII from a global perspective, using [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters Loads And Loads Of Viewpoint Characters]] from all the major participant nations ([[AndZoidberg and Finland]]). The twist is that this is not the WorldWarII ''we'' know, but the same sequence of events transposed onto a generic LowFantasy world which has used FunctionalMagic to achieve industrialisation. Fantastic equivalents for real weapons and technologies abound: dragons for aircraft, leviathans for submarines, behemoths for tanks...

With MagicMissile shooting "sticks" as guns, dragons as aircraft, behemoths for tanks, leviathans for submarines, earthquake-generating spells powered by HumanSacrifice in place of airstrikes, the America equivalent even develops a FantasticNuke.
