Reviews for The War of the Worlds: Battlegroup Charlemagne
cannonfodder43 chapter 2 . 6/27
Truly excellent stuff. Even nine years ago your writing is excellent. The pacing, action and drama are truly palpable and excellent. It reads like a movie, visuals and all.

Makes me want to read War of the Worlds again. Even if I read it off a shelf at school a similar number of years ago. A refresher experience would be nice.

Well I remember stumbling upon this when I inspected your profile years back but never really bothered to peak inside. Boy did I make a mistake.

The world-building is excellent as I expect from you, your descriptions of the outpouring world-wide of support for the British and the fighting; and the scale of the actions and events world wide just beggars the imagination.

This is just wonderful stuff.

JJ Rust chapter 2 . 11/2/2008
Good chapter. Loved the tactics used by the French to knock out two of the Martian machines. Really powerful stuff on the feelings of the French as they killed the surviving Martian and their reasoning behind. Excellent exploration of their psyche in this war.
JJ Rust chapter 1 . 10/30/2008
Pretty good. Nice job presenting it in a history book way without making it boring. It's cool to see how other nations handled the War of the Worlds.
Elegos-Sirinial-Shamtul chapter 2 . 9/13/2008
Cool. I'm not sure I like the Idea of the French saving the British, but thats probably just my national pride

I haven't talked to you in a while.

Glad to see that you've continued the story!

Hope to see more after this! Sorry i haven't worked on Will to Live in a while. I know you liked that story. I've been busy witha prison break story. Actually, it's a series now. Maybe you could check it out!

Anyways, hope you continue this!

Vive La France! I'm loving this story, and your writing style is wonderful, especially your use of battle tactics and the weaponry of the warships. I sure hope you continue this.
Master of the Boot chapter 2 . 7/1/2008
The first clash of forces was most magnificent. I can't sum up why it worked so well because so many things went right with how you described this chapter.

I await the next battle, if or when the Martians strike back.

I just want to congragulate you on this excellent story so far. I think that it is very true to the spirit of the original novel. I like how it takes the plot in a different direction and expands on the whole martian invasion.

I'll be watching. And it's nice to see someone who doesn't take the stereotypical "French are weak" stance in fiction.
