It's truly remarkable how just one strike and a couple of days can change a war in such a way.

Slight correction: Istanbul's first name was Byzantium. It was renamed by the Emperor Constantine..

This whole thing was really good! I liked the looks at both sides, and the excerpts from postwar books.

I enjoyed your alternate-alternate history very much. S.M. Stirling's Draka novels were quite innovative and entertaining, but a bit disturbing (naturally), so it was nice to see them taken down a peg. I detected echoes of "The Chosen" by S.M. Stirling and David Drake, too.
Regarding Admiral Yamamoto and Commander Fuchida, I recommend that you read "Shattered Sword" (Battle of Midway) by Parshall and Tully. It appears to be an excellent, revisionist review of the Battle of Midway, and expresses. . . very firm . . . opinions of Admiral Yamamoto and Commander Fuchida.

Ok so a few things
Firstly great story; well done. I rarely give compliments but this was quite excellent.
Secondly some people will say that this doesn't fit with the Draka mythos. Here I will disagree. Stirling did a very good job with his Draka books but what happened was that he fell in love with his own villains and just couldn't kill them off. I always consider an alternate ending where the Draka loose to be more in line with how the true ending should have been. Stirling's ending was ok at best; this ending is better.
EDIT: Well derp, there is a sequel. Reading it now P

Unbelievably, professionally good. Now stop writing fanfiction and go write a novel so I can buy it!

Hey, thanks for doing a Draka story. I really appreciated and enjoyed this. Don't be discouraged if you don't get many reviews - hard category to find. Plus there's always someone who can't stand the idea of the Draka losing.
On that, if I had one criticism it would be that it seemed a bit too easy. Yes, Stirling's whole series was too easy for the other side and American intervention on in Europe sure seems like it would have worked but this a little too close to one (operation) and done.
But mostly just enjoyed it.
