YMMV: Timeline-191
  • Magnificent Bastard: Clarence Potter, the Confederate spymaster who always speaks his mind to Jake, runs a network of agents across the continent, and nukes Philidelphia from the back of a truck. On the US side of things, there's Luther Bliss, head of the Kentucky State Police, and the one man who scares CS intelligence (including Potter) to death.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Chester being a (reluctant) participant in Boris Lavochkin's reign of terror leaves him wondering if he has crossed it. Jake Featherston, Jefferson Pinkard and the CSA as a whole cross it during the "population reduction." Roger Kimble, already largely unsympathetic, crosses it when he sinks a ship after the end of WWI.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: A large number of readers were disappointed that the series is a metaphor for World War II instead of realistically examining the consequences of a Confederate victory on the world.
