This is book number 1 in the Axis of Time series.


The year is 1954. A decade has passed since Berlin and Tokyo were consumed by nuclear fire, but war claws its way back to a world forever altered. The ailing Soviet dictator, Josef Stalin, strikes NATO with a colossal orbital assault, propelling waves of tanks and over a million soldiers westward - all armed with 21st-century tech plundered from a future they never knew.

Admiral Kolhammer, Prince Harry, and Charlotte Francois are compelled to once again take arms. They're fighting not only to save the world but history itself. Yet, in this complex web of time and conflict, not everybody wants to be saved.

Brimming with the raw combat intensity and high-octane alternate history that fans adored in "Weapons of Choice," this fresh instalment revitalizes the groundbreaking Axis of Time series for both returning readers and newcomers.

Praise for the Axis of Time.

"Insanely clever alt-history mash-up of WWII and the twenty-first century war on terror isn't your typical time-travelling technothriller." - Wired magazine.

"Birmingham is exemplary. The descriptions of combat - both from an executive remove and a close - are terrifyingly gruesome and detailed... Birmingham succeeds in restaging World War II in a manner as gripping as, say, Herman Wouk's The Winds of War and War and Remembrance." - Sci-fi Weekly.

"Weapons-grade military techno-thriller... It's like a Clive Cussler novel fell into a transporter beam with a Stephen Ambrose hisotry and they came out all fused together." Time magazine.

"Birmingham's enthralling battleground mixes provocative historical fiction with socially, conscious futurism." Entertainment Weekly.
