From the author of breakout World War II–era alternate
history Himmler’s War comes another
compelling alternate history thriller.
With American loss at the Battle of Midway, Japan runs rampant in the
It is the summer of 1942, and what our historians have
called the Incredible Victory in the Battle of Midway has become a horrendous
disaster. Two of America’s handful of carriers in the Pacific have blundered
into a Japanese submarine picket line and been sunk, while a third is destroyed
the next day. The United States has only one carrier remaining in the Pacific
against nine Japanese, while the ragtag remnants of US battleships—an armada
still reeling from the defeat at Pearl Harbor—are in even worse shape.
Now the Pacific belongs to the Japanese. And it doesn’t stop
there, as Japan thrust her sword in to the hilt. Alaska is invaded. Hawaii is
under blockade. The Panama Canal is nearly plugged. Worst of all, the West
Coast of America is ripe destruction as bombers of the Empire of the Sun
bombard West Coast American cities at will.
Despite these disasters, the US begins to fight back.
Limited counterattacks are made and a grand plan is put forth to lure the
Japanese into an ambush that could restore the balance in the Pacific and give
the forces of freedom a fighting chance once more. Download and start listening now!
