Seas of crisis
The next world war draws toward its climax. Both the Allies and the Berlin-Boer Axis are bitterly deadlocked. But a familiar enemy from the past may hold the key to victory -- or could be the instrument of global Armageddon.
In a war that needs every capable body, every scrap of mat#65533;riel, America's greatest military hero worries that his days on the front lines are over. Captain Jeffrey Fuller's last mission forced him to sacrifice the lives of good men in order to secure a victory, a tactical decision that he fears may have ended his career.
But an opportunity for redemption comes in the form of a new mission that will pit Fuller against his former adversaries from the Cold War. Washington has concluded that Russia is the key to victory. The former superpower, officially a neutral country, is clandestinely supplying the Axis powers with advanced weapons technology. Russia must be punished, but it needs to be orchestrated in such a way that will, at the same time, avoid creating a new enemy. To accomplish such a bold maneuver, Jeffrey Fuller must sneak a team of commandos into Russia to launch a nuclear missile -- against his own country.
If successful, the Allies will be able to destroy the missile and use the event to pressure the Russians into an alliance. It's an all-or-nothing gambit, with no room for error. If the Russians discover the commandos, they will side with Berlin against the United States, a political disaster that will ensure victory for the Axis. If something goes wrong with the missile, Fuller could kill millions of people, and perhaps even initiate a full-blown nuclearholocaust.
Such worst-case scenarios assume that Fuller can first navigate his ship, the fast attack nuclear submarine USS Challenger, through the mine-strewn and submarine-patrolled waters between Alaska and Siberia, a nearly impossible feat unto itself.
It is a mission that will, one way or another, finally put an end to the war.

|display_description||The Allied Powers continue their uncertain and deadly war against the Fascist Berlin-Boer Axis. The Russians remain ostensibly neutral--but their actions hint at something far more dangerous. When the U.S. discovers that the Russians are providing the Axis powers with weapons technology that could shift the balance of power, Captain Jeffrey Fuller, one of the most decorated heroes in the U.S. Navy, is called in to put an end to this potentially catastrophic Russian involvement. The plan to punish Russia is audacious. It is bold. And it is potentially suicidal. Jeffrey Fuller's orders are to clandestinely transport commandos to Russia, where they will infiltrate a nuclear missile facility, and fire one of their weapons--at the United States. If the plan is successful, the commandos, posing as German forces, will destroy the missile at it reaches the atmosphere, creating a dramatic shift in global politics and forcing Russia to ally with the United States against Germany.|
