Resurgent - The Kirov Series Surges into WWIII

The Next War - Book 4

   After stunning setbacks in the Pacific, the US Navy regroups and again braves the threat of China’s ballistic missiles. As the Chinese plan a strategy of maritime isolation around Taiwan, the resurgent USN boldly challenges their operations northeast of Taipei on the Japanese island of Yonaguni.
   In the South China Sea, Argos Fire leads the Gator Navy on a campaign to neutralize reef island outposts and gain control of the Spratley Island region, China’s new maritime province of Sansha. They soon face strong opposition from powerful task forces built around the new carrier Taifeng.
   In the meantime, Admiral Karpov leads the Russian Pacific Fleet on two major sorties to threaten the flank of US naval operations. Kirov and company are given free rein to begin commerce raiding in the Pacific. As tensions rise in Korea, China’s East Seas Fleet fights for control of the Yellow Sea. With war in Korea almost certain,  Karpov learns a vital task force carrying the US 25th Infantry Division is now at sea.

Written to allow new readers to enter the series here, the Next War tells the story of what would have happened to Kirov if it had not shifted to the past. Instead, Karpov and Fedorov find themselves embroiled in the outbreak of WWIII in 2021. The volumes of the Next War also function as a prelude to the main 40 book Kirov Series, so new readers can start right here with Homecoming.

RECENT PUBLICATIONS:

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.”
