The Axis of Time series - John Birmingham
I just finished reading this series, and thoroughly enjoyed it!
The series takes a fictional multinational force from the year 2021 and throws them back in time (thanks to idiot scientists) into the middle of the Pacific in 1942... in fact into the middle of an American fleet.
There is so much to work with here, and John does a brilliant job dealing with the impacts of modern technology and a society that no longer discriminates by race, gender, or religion. Imagine the fun of having Russians and Japanese as part of the multinational force? And what happens when the bad guys also get hold of the technology?
