You are now setting foot on the deck of the longest running alternate history military epic ever written! Pictured here as stacked from the
breakthrough novel Kirov (Book 1) to the latest book Ironfall (Volume 30), this epic story now exceeds 9,800 pages, and 3.3 million words. That is twice as long as Marcel Proust’s “ In search of Lost Time,”
which topped out at 4,215 pages, three times longer than the entire George Martin Game of Thrones series, and nearly six times longer than War & Peace. While not posing as high literature,
these books are a good deal more exciting than Proust or Tolstoy, presenting a richly textured alternate history of WWII.
Arranged in “seasons” of 8 volumes each, the story is now in Season 4, slowly retelling the history of the Second World War,
burned and blackened by the awesome power of the most powerful surface ship in the world, the battlecruiser Kirov. After a strange accident displaces the ship in time, the officers and crew
begin their marathon journey through WWII, soon finding that their interventions are drastically altering the history of all future time, and imperiling their very own existence as the future they
came from can no longer take shape from the shattered meridians of time.
The series has often been called “The Russian Final Countdown,” after the popular movie that saw a Nimitz Class carrier displaced in time to December 6, 1941. It has taken twenty-nine volumes to finally reach March of 1943, and loyal readers have eagerly supported the story from Book 1. Originally conceived as a naval thriller, the series has expanded to include all the major land battles of WWII as it progresses through the history. As of book 30, the series returns to the Pacific in a major carrier clash off Yasawa in the Fiji Group. Then we visit the Allied Drive in Tunisia, Operation Eisenfall in Syria, (including a major battle for Damascus), a new flashpoint in Operation Edelweiss, and a major Soviet offensive: Operation Red Star. See a list of all battles covered by visiting the “season” links below to learn more about the books in this amazing series, which releases a new novel every 60 days to continue the alternate history.
The series is so massive that its subplots create entire standalone novels! Many of the individual campaigns that were
presented in segments spanning five to ten novels have been concentrated into one uninterrupted volume. These so called “Battle Books” cover each of
the major theaters of the war. Scroll to the bottom of this page for more info on these
