YMMV: Julian Comstock
- Author Tract: The book makes the author's rather left-leaning politics obvious.
- Genius Bonus: While Adam is assisting a doctor with amputations during the Goose Bay campaign, a soldier who is posing as a priest uses parts of a Walt Whitman poem as an impromptu prayer for the wounded. During the American Civil War, Whitman volunteered as an army nurse and did much to publicize the experiences of medical personnel and wounded.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The post-apocalyptic U.S.A. is in many ways what a successful and nationwide version Columbia from BioShock Infinite would look like.
