(2015)
(The sixth book in the Red Gambit series)
A novel by

 
 
The sixth in a series of books that cover World War Three, from July 1945 through to its close in September 1947.
1946 has moved out of its suspended state, and violence has blossomed once again.
In the Pacific, the war reaches a peak of horror previously undreamt of in the history of man.
The severe European winter is a fading memory, but its after effects still resonate, particularly with the Red Army, deprived of the chattels of war. The fighting drags on, with little to show for the plans and devices of the politicians and generals.
Each side has its new efforts; each side experiences new disappointments.
Germany is strengthening and starts to shoulder more of the Allied burden, filling gaps left by the weakening of Britain and the United States.
Logistically bankrupt, the Red Army strives for one more struggle, one focussed effort against one of the Allies, in an effort to knock that nation out of the war, knowing that failure could spell the end, but that success could pluck victory from the jaws of defeat.
[This is a series about combat and contains descriptions of what man is capable of doing to man in all its nasty and bestial manifestations.]
[The 'Red Gambit Series' novels are works of fiction, and deal with fictional events. Most of the characters therein are a figment of the author's imagination. Without exception, those characters that are historical figures of fact or based upon historical figures of fact are used fictitiously, and their actions, demeanour, conversations, and characters are similarly all figments of the author's imagination.]
