It is November 1963 - 13 months after the Cuban Missile Crisis went horribly wrong. In this timeline the swinging sixties are not going to happen and the survivors, far from counting their blessings are beginning to wonder exactly what sort of world they have created.

In the aftermath of the war of October 1962 the United States of America had seemed victorious, but what price victory in a world half-wrecked and in which so many old friends have died?

America has survived but has been changed forever. The fracture lines in the Union are widening and America's time of trial, far from being over, still lies in a future fraught with what 18 months before would have seemed like unimaginable perils.
