Season four continues with Stormtide Rising
in the Kirov Series
With the Allied forces closing on Tunisia from two sides, the Germans conceive a bold new plan that sends Rommel west to the heartland of Tunisia where he
confronts the American Army under General Patton. The Axis forces launch Operation Sturmflut (Stormtide) as the famous names etched in the original history at Kasserine, Bou Aziz, Gafsa and El Guettar will again see the rising tide of war.
At the same time, Hitler presses his daring invasion of Iraq and Syria in Operation Phoenix,
while launching the cream of his airborne troops against the British outpost on Crete with a much belated Operation Merkur. As Guderian pushes into the heartland of Persia, Hitler
sets his eyes on the richest prize in the world—all the oil the Reich will ever need to fuel the fires of war. Yet before Guderian can drive south, he must first secure his lines of
communication. That necessity leads to a dramatic battle for the ancient capital city of Baghdad, with both sides risking all they have to rule the hour.
Events in Russia reach the
boiling point when a scheme launched by Fedorov has a profound effect. Meanwhile, Fedorov and Karpov face the grim reality of their situation and come to a decisive conclusion about how
they must proceed.
