1632 by Eric Flint

What happens when a cosmic accident swaps a present-day West Virginia mining town with an equivalent chunk of German countryside in the middle of the Thirty Years' War?
Everything seemed normal enough when UMWA local leader Mike Stearns' younger sister was married to the son of a powerful businessman. Then the Ring of Fire fell and nothing was ever the same.
Suddenly the outside world they've taken for granted is gone. Instead they are surrounded by armies fighting one of the most destructive wars in human history.
Mike and his fellow miners soon decide they can't just wait for things to happen -- they're going to take a hand in trying to make this world a little better place to live in. But to do that, they are going to have to fight.
