Kirov Saga: Thor’s Anvil
Book 26 in the Kirov Series
The crew of Takami returns to the South Pacific to meet with Yamamoto, and now they must undertake a new operation. A daring raid into the Indian Ocean is planned, as the Japanese aim to capture the last British outposts on Ceylon. Desperate to defend the island, Admiral Somerville leads the Eastern Fleet out to oppose Hara’s 3rd Carrier Division in the first carrier duel between Britain and Japan.
After his strange and tumultuous arrival at Ilanskiy, Anton Fedorov now confronts his moment of destiny in the lonesome railway inn that sits at the center of a dangerous vortex in time. The decision he makes will decide the fate of the world he hopes to return to.
Meanwhile, the Germans now drive to the city of Volgograd, cutting it off as their troops reach the Volga in the north. There, a vital bridge links Hitler’s legions to those of Ivan Volkov, and the Germans mass their toughest Pioneer Battalions to attempt to break through at Rynok. Steiner is determined to storm this last Soviet bastion in the south, but Chuikov and Shumilov plot the stalwart Soviet defense that made this place an anvil of doom for Germany’s fortunes in the war. As the elite German divisions strike one by one to hammer upon that anvil, General Zhukov unleashes his long awaited winter counteroffensive aimed at Kursk.
Exciting action on three fronts, East, West and Pacific.
