Kill Chain - The Kirov Series Surges into WWIII

The Final Season - Book 2

As the Russian Operation Blizzard surges into the North Cape, Kirov leads the North Fleet into the first major engagement of the next war, the Battle of the Denmark Strait. The tension mounts as two American carrier strike groups continue to advance, and Captain Karpov must use both skill and guile to seize control of the engagement and coordinate his attack with a massive raid by the Russian Backfire bomber squadrons from the Kola Peninsula. Relying on his superb long range missiles, Karpov must advance into the lion’s den to get the bulk of his task force into position to attack. But the American planes are already in the skies, bringing their own wrath to face the Russian threat.

The greatest naval battle since the Second World War is about to begin, and the cost in both steel and blood will be high, as all the officers and crew of the mighty Kirov sail into the cold deadly waters of World War Three!
 

Written to allow new readers to enter the series here with this volume, which functions as a prelude to the main 40 book series.

The final four volumes of Season 5 take the war in the west from the landings in France through the crossing of the Rhine. Its all there, but with a twist. In this alternate history the Allies land in the Pas De Calais. Their Market Garden operation aims to seize Antwerp, not Arnhem. Patton leads the breakout in the south (Cobra), and the battle for Aachen and Hurtgen Forest are covered before the German Ardennes offensive uses von Rundstedt’s ”Plan Martin.” Not long after, Operation Varsity jumps the Rhine!

“Every book, every volume you see here, has a soul. The soul of the person who wrote it and of those who read it and lived and dreamed with it. Every time a book changes hands, every time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its spirit grows and strengthens.”
