About Eagle Rising:
Volume VII in the Next War segment of the long Kirov Saga now takes the war in 2021 to Europe as NATO begins its long awaited counteroffensive to liberate the Baltic States. Operation Eagle Rising begins with a bold stroke to cut off the Russian salient of Kaliningrad, and liberate Kaunas and Vilnius in Lithuania. As the American divisions push through the Suwalki Gap, strong German and British contingents under Brigadiers Berg and Kinlan are on their left, fighting their way across the Neman River. Eventually, the plan is to drive north to Riga, the capital of Latvia, and cross the Daugava River. Can the vaunted Russian Army stop them while also fighting a dramatic battle for control of Kharkov in the Ukraine?
Meanwhile, Kirov moves east towards a meeting with Tyrenkov at the Northern Shamrock, only to find the Grey Wolves in a daunting and perplexing encounter when they reach that far flung arctic outpost. They soon realize things are terribly wrong....
New Readers Welcome!
This is the third volume of the Next War segment 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. Because the main Kirov Series devoted 40 volumes to action set in the Second World War, in this segment of the saga, we get World War Three! Therefore, new readers do not need to read the mainstream 40 volume Kirov Series, and can enter the Next War by just starting with book 41, Homecoming.
Everything you need to know is recapped by the author in this segment to bring you up to speed. When this segment concludes, you can then jump back to book 1 and take the ride to WWII.
