Opening Moves

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

[Revised edition Dec 2015] The first of a series of books that cover World War Three, from July 1945 through to its close in September 1947.
From the cold waters of the Baltic to a coffee shop in Turkey, a Chateau in Alsace to paddy fields in China, a foxhole in Northern Germany to the Kremlins private offices, the Red Gambit series will carry you through the events that lead up to and continue through what became known as World War Three.
Told from the point of view of the soldiers in the frontline, aircraft pilots, submarine and tank commanders and on to the Supreme Commanders on either side of the divide.
Ride with Colonel of Tanks Arkady Yarishlov of the Red Army, fight alongside Major John Ramsey VC of the Black Watch, learn about leadership and honour from ex-SS Standartenfuher Ernst-August Knocke and follow Major Marion J Crisp to glory with the 101st US Airborne Division.
Soldiers who had been fighting for years could look up at the summer sky and know that death would not visit them that day.

It was the pause but they didn't know it.

[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.]
March 2013 revisions attend to spelling, grammar and punctuation errors in sixth edition, plus coloured maps and some new graphics.

[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.]
