You might enjoy Harry Turtledove's "Darkness" cycle. It's basically WW2 reintepreted into a fantasy-style war in a different world. It's a fun, but kind of long romp.
"Guns of the South" was pretty good, but I must say that I really dislike Turtledove's writing. I read a couple of books of his about the aliens invading Earth during WWII, and while I liked the concept, I found myself often getting jolted from the story by the recurring thought of "No one would really say something like that."
Onward Fisher, Onward Fisher, block right through that line.
Block the ball clear down the field, a touchdown sure this time.
Onward Fisher, Onward Fisher, fight on for her fame.
Fight, fellows, fight, fight, fight, we'll win this game.
