KamrajShe hasn't been assimilated yet. She's trying to fake it, and the crew is being tolerant, but it'll take longer than a couple of days.For the Krewe in Nawlins, I didn't think that shipboard sets could be integrated with land batteries very well. Of course, the whole thing was possibly also a gross exaggeration, with most of the shot down planes from the Virginia, and credit given to the land batteries. As far as getting information, I think Little is relying on rumint, signals interception, and creative writing.WB - The dialogue in Newport seemed somewhat strained at times, like the characters were being forced into saying things instead of flowing naturally. It's not a serious fault, because writing nine part dialogue is one of the most difficult tasks an author has to do, next to writing an opening and closing sentence.

Little once again hits a two-pronged attack. Open rebellion in the occupied Confederacy, and a not-so-veiled threat that sometime will fall on the rump USA. As stated previously, the cycle of oppression will inevitably grow.
Hanes is not a team player, nor really aware of her secondary or tertiary skill sets. Her suggestion is plausible for a novice, though may require refinement. She's effectively on probation. Other key personal developments are her aversion to men, and her preference for strict formal relationships.

I'm finding it notable that he's chosen tribal music—this is a broadcast coming from New Orleans, and presumably of a day when there weren't many options for recorded music.
I'm seeing two scenes in the NWC section, really, and I'm curious how it would have flowed had the small Haynes–Alden–Adams meeting been separated from the staff meeting. Haynes would bring some of Crandlemeyer's penchant for quick reading and organization.

At this point the NWC has to either win the war or die trying, because if they lose the victors will be exceedingly unkind to them.
There are times when I think that Malcolm Little doesn't know what he's messing with. There are other times when I think that his opponents are making the same mistake. Right now I'm leaning towards Option 2... but I wouldn't be surprised if my opinion swings back the other way.

The evil and deviousness of this plan is amazing!
The again any thought of holding back went out the window when a nuke was dropped on Boston.
Bio attack , the was no real way to fight Cholera.
Hmm is this a chance for O'Brien to meet up with Sarah again?
Love the story!

They are arguably no staunch supporters oft he negro cause. Maybe a lot of white people could shift loyalties away from the CSA.
Considering the treatment of Japanese Americans in OTL, the future for Negros in the occupied territory seems grim. I guess there will be a lot of internment camps for Negros. The potential resistance fighters are easy to distinguish...
Nurse Hanes idea to poison Chicago brings the next round of atrocities. I have no idea, if and how Cholera could be used as a bio weapon, how it is transported and how much is needed to poison a whole city. The idea is devious.
