“The battle of Dorking” was published in 2013 and was written by George Tomkins Chesney.
I obtained a galley of this short story for review through https://www.netgalley.com. I would categorize this Alternate History short story as ‘R’ as there are instances of Violence. The novel is written in England of the 1870s.
The story is told of how a German-like country successfully invades England. I only spent 2 hours reading the story, so there is not a lot to it. It is interesting and reminds me of HG Wells “War of the Worlds” in some ways. It would have been better if it were longer. As it is, I felt like I had read a chapter out of a longer book without benefit of knowing what came before or after.
I give this novel a 3 out of 5.
