About Able Sentry:
The war in 2025 slips into a new year as British Admiral Wells is given a new mission to secure Aden and
Djibouti and open the approaches to the Red Sea. At the same time, Israel and the US launch a big offensive through Sinai, with both operations aimed at opening the Suez Canal and restoring the vital
maritime passage from the Med to the Arabian Sea. These moves are a prelude to a much bigger overall plan dubbed “Able Sentry,” the defense of Saudi Arabia and liberation of Kuwait from
the combined forces of Iraq and Iran.
Brigadier Kinlan is also given a surprising new mission that will take him to the root of strange dreams and odd memories that have plagued him
of late, a daring raid into the Egyptian desert to a place called Sultan Apache.
While Roosevelt and Independence begin operations to open the Gulf of Oman, the Chinese Admiral Wu Jinlong proposes a bold new offensive to give China a victory it so desperately needs, but the USS Enterprise, and Kirov,
join forces to meet the challenge.
New Readers Welcome!
This is the second volume of the war in 2025 of the Kirov Series, written
in a way to welcome new readers interested in modern Naval Air combat in a great power conflict that may be on our doorstep. The main Kirov Series devoted 40 volumes to action set in the Second World War, followed by 8 volumes depicting the war in 2021 on the original timeline. In effect, it tell what would have happened to the ship if it had not shifted to the past in book 1 of the main series. In this segment of the saga, we get World War Three as it happened in the future that arose from the alternate history of WWII. Therefore, new readers do not need to read the mainstream 40 volume Kirov Series, and can enter the Next War segment by just starting with book 41, Homecoming. The last book in that 8 book season, Tangent Fire,
is then a bridge novel to the war in 2025 in the future that arose from Kirov’s many interventions in the past. Everything you need to know is recapped by the author to bring you up to
speed. When this segment concludes, you can then jump back to book 1 and take the ride to WWII.
