The first of a series of books that cover World War Three, from July 1945 through to its close in September 1947.
From the cold waters of the Baltic to a coffee shop in Turkey, a Chateau in Alsace to paddy fields in China, a foxhole in Northern Germany to the Kremlins private offices, the Red Gambit series will carry you through the events that lead up to and continue through what became known as World War Three.
Told from the point of view of the soldiers in the frontline, aircraft pilots, submarine and tank commanders and on to the Supreme Commanders on either side of the divide.
Ride with Colonel of Tanks Arkady Yarishlov of the Red Army, fight alongside Major John Ramsey VC of the Black Watch, learn about leadership and honour from ex-SS Standartenfuher Ernst-August Knocke and follow Major Marion J Crisp to glory with the 101st US Airborne Division.
Soldiers who had been fighting for years could look up at the summer sky and know that death would not visit them that day.
It was the pause but they didn't know it.
The Biographies: Companion volume to 'Opening Moves', this volume answers the perennial question of the frustrated reader 'what happened to him?'
Every character, both historical and fictional, has some record within this volume. Some solely birth and death dates but many are more intricate and will give the reader more information about life before and after 'Red Gambit'.
Use with caution, as there is much information inside the Biograhies which relates to events in 'Opening Moves'.
