The Thirty Years War continues to ravage 17th century
Europe, but a new force is gathering power and influence:
the Confederated Principalities of Europe, an alliance
between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West
Virginians from the 20th century led by Mike Stearns who
were hurled centuries into the past by a mysterious cosmic
accident. Inspired by the example of American freedom and
justice, a movement in Franconia among the peasants, who
have revolted several times even before the arrival from
the future of the town of Grantville, an independent
revolutionary movement has arisen, flying the banner of
the head of a ram. The West Virginians fully approve of
liberating the peasants from the nobility, but they are
also aware of how revolutionary movements can lead to
bloodbaths. And avoiding that deadly possibility will
require all of their future knowledge and all their plain
old American horse-trading diplomacy. . . .
