ISOT American 2002

The continental United States of 2002 is transported back in time to 1942. War's over, right? Not so fast. But I'll say no more about the tale.

Anyway, I haven't read it since it was first published 10 years ago in installments on the soc.history.what-if? message board, but it's all on one webpage that I was able to find (linked above). If you can get past the annoying apostrophe formatting issues, it's a read I recommend!
