Communist China, Japan, Nazi Germany, and the United States began World War II as mortal enemies. But suddenly their only hope for survival—never mind victory—is to unite to stop a mighty foe: one whose frightening technology appear invincible.
Far worse beings than the Nazis are loose. From Warsaw to Moscow to China’s enemy-occupied Forbidden City, the nations of the world have been forced into an uneasy alliance since humanity began its struggle against overwhelming odds. In Britain and Germany, where the banshee wail of hostile jets screamed across the land, caches of once-forbidden weapons are unearthed, and unthinkable tactics are employed against the enemy. Brilliantly innovative military strategists confront challenges unprecedented in the history of warfare.
Even as lack of fuel forces people back to the horse and carriage, physicists work feverishly to create the first atomic bombs—with horrifying results. City after city is joining the radioactive pyre as the planet erupts in fiery ruins. Yet the crisis continues—on land, sea, and in the air—as humanity writhes in global combat. The tactics of daredevil guerrillas everywhere are becoming increasingly ingenious against a superior foe whose desperate retaliation could grow ever more fearsome.
No one has ever put the United States, or the world, in such deadly danger. But if the carnage and annihilation ever stops, will there be any pieces to pick up? Download and start listening now!
