Three days after the conclusion of Volume IV, Anvil of Fate, the project team still has “unfinished business.” The
Palma Event still ravages the Meridian, and Professor Nordhausen has his hand on the neck of the man he believes is ultimately responsible for the catastrophe. The Golem trail leads the
team to one of the greatest naval sagas of all time, the hunt for the German battleship Bismarck!
The book examines all the strange mishaps, odd decisions, quirks of fate
and sheer luck that stacked up one upon another to lead to the sinking of Germany’s greatest ship...but something has gone awry and the Bismarck survives its maiden voyage, with startling consequences. Now the project team must find out why. Written in the “live history” style that first appeared in Volume IV, the historical figures come to life as they act out an exciting and engaging alternate history “sink the Bismarck” campaigns. They’re all here--Lutjens and Lindemann aboard Bismarck,, Wohlfarth of U-556, Tovey, Brind, Holland and Dalrymple-Hammilton and more--all the key players on this vast historical stage.
Join Physicist Paul Dorland, Historian Robert Nordhausen, Math and Computer genius Kelly Ramer, and the redoubtable head of Outcomes & Consequences, Maeve Linford as they
sleuth the history to identify the key Levers, Prime Movers and hidden Pushpoints in this exciting alternate history tale of the hunt for the Bismarck. The book reads easily as a stand alone novel, even if you haven’t read the other series books,
but it also makes a perfect finish to this amazing quintet for those who have followed the Meridian team from the outset in the award winning Volume I.
