Season four continues with Ironfall
Book 31 in the
The Fairchild Group launches its mission to seek the key lost aboard Rodney, even as the Allies close the door on the war in North Africa with Operation Chariot. As
the 5th Panzer Army dies in Tunisia, Hitler must now find a way to shore up Armeegruppe South while also finding divisions to guard the West.
Both sides now plan operations for the
late Spring and early Summer. The Allies must decide whether to strike at Sardinia or Sicily in an attempt to topple the regime of Mussolini and knock Italy out of the war, while the
Germans must choose from several operations in the south, Habicht, Panther and Zitadelle. The Soviets plan new offensives of their own that will prove, once and for
all, that the tide of the war in the east is shifting.
Meanwhile, the work of Lord Elgin is strangely mirrored by the action of his son, the 8th Earl, and a
seemingly small squabble on the China coast at Canton escalates into an event that has sinister implications for the quest Elena Fairchild has undertaken. Then, just as Fedorov and
company begin to finalize their plans for the mission to 1908, Admiral Tovey makes a dramatic request.
