Set III is the Altered States trilogy and its sequel and Bridge Novel Three Kings. Here Kirov is displaced to a new time line in 1940, a full year before its first arrival in book 1 in July of 1941. Now they find that their actions in earlier books have radically altered the world, particularly their homeland of Russia, which is now divided into three warring states.
This time Kirov Sides with the British, thinking a firm alliance that is preserved into modern times might prevent the great war in 2021. The Altered States trilogy now pits Kirov against a powerful new foe, the Kriegsmarine, with new ships from the Plan Z naval buildup.
As the trilogy ends, Germany attacks Gibraltar in a major point of divergence in the war, and now events move to the Western Desert in Three Kings, where two
skilled generals face off against one another and Kirov joins the British Eastern Med Fleet to oppose a powerful Axis fleet from three nations.
