The new United States in central Germany launches a one-plane Doolittle Raid on Paris, France. The target: their arch-enemy, Cardinal Richelieu. Meanwhile, an ambassador from the Mughal Empire of northern India is being held captive in Austria by the Habsburg dynasty. Mike Stearns decides to send a mercenary company to rescue him, led by two seventeenth-century mercenary officers: an Englishman and a Irishman, who seem to spend as much time fighting each other as they do the enemy.

Mike Spehar's 'Collateral Damage' and Chris Weber's 'The Company Men' are just two of the stories contained in this second volume of the Grantville Gazette. In other stories:

● A prominent Italian musician decides to travel to Grantville to investigate the music of the future.

● An American archer and a Finnish cavalryman become friends in the middle of a battlefield.

● A Lutheran pastor begins a theological challenge to the establishment based on his interpretation of the Ring of Fire.

● American and German detectives become partners to investigate a murder.

Contains mature themes.

Grantville Fan-written stories can be as good as those written by known authors because they write from their field of knowledge/specialty. In particular in volume 2 are the stories focused on a German pastor coming to grips with the religious tolerance in Granville and its implications for 1633 dogmas of his faith. The conclusion of his struggles highlights one of the most relevant truths as necessary in the 21st Century as in 1633. A second story of note is the extremely well written drama of medical culture and care clashing across four centuries. As Grantville emissaries struggle to tolerate 17th century academics and doctors at the closest University, while attempting to set up a jointly staffed modern medical school to turn out new fully trained doctors, nurses, and other health care workers up to 21st century standards starting with both uptime and downtime students. Insightful tutorials on public health issues, herbal medicines, specific trauma cases, and personal health care are woven throughout the interplay of characters. And the issue of women's status in a male dominated medical system is addressed head-on. Fun, enlightening, and entertaining.
