THE RISE AND FALL OF THE DRAKAN EMPIRE
In Under the Yoke Steve Stirling has created a world in which the losers in the American Revolution did not have a Canada to flee to; instead they had-South Africa. Strangely enough, this seemingly minor reality shift made the future history of that world totally different from our own.
The refugees called their new world Drakesland, and they called themselves the Draka. In Drakesland these slave-owning American Tories and their descendants created a society dedicated to the proposition that all peoples are created equal - equal under the heel of the Draka. Having pacified Africa, they headed north to Europe, with the same result. Now it's our turn.
