The CPE has the information of twentieth century know-how, yet wishes iron and metal to make the machines. The iron mines of the higher Palatinate have been rendered inoperable via wartime harm, and American information is required instantaneous to pump them out and get the steel flowing again--a project that may turn out extra advanced than somebody expects. within the maelstrom that's Europe, even a twentieth century replica of the "Encyclopedia Britannica" can precipitate a obstacle, whilst readers examine of the 1640 Portuguese rebellion, a predicament that might contain Naples in addition. one other issue: Albanian exiles in Naples, encouraged by means of the american citizens, are plotting to get well misplaced Albanian turf, to be able to precipitate another trouble within the Balkans.
This century used to be choked with revolutions and plans for extra revolutions ahead of the american citizens arrived, and gave each would-be progressive an instance of a revolution that succeeded. Europe is a pot coming to a boil, and Mike Stearns may have his palms complete for the reason that it doesn't boil over directly to Grantville and the CPE.
