Praise for this book

"THE WILD BLUE AND THE GRAY is a tragicomic alternate look at the first great catastrophe of the twentieth century. Laughter is often the only way to shield ourselves from pain that would otherwise be intolerable. Sanders understands this well--and also that, the more things change, the more they sometimes look the same." - Harry Turtledove

"God damn! I liked Sanders' new book! It pushes all the right buttons for me - a great protagonist, WWI fighter pilots, terrific background, and - mainly - a fine story with really clever twists. It was one of those where I just wanted to keep going, though he did choose a satisfying place to stop. THE WILD BLUE AND THE GRAY is an absolutely captivating story by one of the hottest new talents in the business. Subtle, strong, gutsy, humorous - it's got it all. Watch this man. You won't regret it." - Roger Zelazny
