Rhinelander - The War in the West Concludes

Available Now!

Rhinelander-380

   The final battles of the war unfold in the West as the Allies plan to fight their way into the dread Hurtgen Forest, assault the Westwall to encircle Aachen, cross the Roer, and marshal on the banks of the mighty river Rhine. But in the midst of all these operations the Germans unleash their Panzer reserve in a major operation, code named Rhinelander, hoping to buy time and unhinge the Allied advance. Their objective is to encircle and destroy Patton’s 3rd Army, but they soon realize they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

   Cover to cover action presents all the battles that ended the war in the West, Hurtgenwald, Grenade, Lumberjack, Wacht Am Rhein, and finally Operations Plunder and Varsity as the Allies leap across the last great German defensive barrier to try and end the war.

   As this final volume of the alternate history of WWII concludes, all the major characters are poised to make their return journey to 2021, where they soon find another war, equally vast and deadly, simmers at the edge of the fire. As it continues into Season 6, the Kirov Series now returns to its roots, with all the action seen through the eyes of the officers and crew of the mighty ship that started it all, Kirov.

The Kirov Audio Book Fundraising Project

Perhaps the closest we will ever get to a movie version of Kirov will be a professional audio book project, and this is now on the radar screen. The expense required to do it right, hiring enough voice talent to bring the characters to life, has prompted us to see if readers might support this project through a “Go Fund Me” campaign to offer the first three volumes of the Kirov Series  as audiobooks. We’re trying to raise $25,000 to do this, and here are the different levels where you can contribute to help make the project a reality.

Support us at the $20 level as a way to say “Thanks” to the author for delivering 40 volumes of this incredible series with such dedication, and also get a sales code that will deliver a free kindle version of a coming book from the final season of the series.
Support us at the $50 level and receive any single volume of the Kirov Series you designate as a book, personally autographed by the author.
Support us at the $100 level and receive a free copy of one  finished audiobook in either digital or CD format, and an autographed copy of that same novel in book form.
Support us at the $200 level and receive the opening trilogy of the  Series as finished audio books when complete, including all three autographed paperbacks.
Support us at the $500 level and receive all three audiobooks as above and also any single 8 volume season of the Kirov Series as paperbacks signed by the author.
