TITLE (EDIT)
Russian Front
DESCRIPTION
'Russian Front' is a wartime thriller, an historical adventure based on carefully researched historical fact. The action moves from the North African desert to Lisbon, London, Hitler's eastern-front HQ in East Prussia, and climaxes in a bloody battle in the no-man's land between Russian and German troops at Stalingrad.

The action of 'Russian Front' takes place during the Autumn and Winter of 1942, as the key WW2 battles of Stalingrad and El Alamein are raging - thousands of miles away from each other and in very different climates.

A young officer from the Long Range Desert Group (forerunners of the SAS)is brought to Stalingrad to impersonate 'Yuri', a Russian super-sniper, who has recently fallen in the ferocious street-fighting. The Red Army High Command decide that Yuri's death must remain a secret in order to stiffen the morale of the City's defenders.

But the Germans learn that a marksman is on the way to Russia - they just don't know why. A ruthless Nazi spy is despatched to England to discover the reason.

Will Hugh's cover be blown? How will he deal with the German marksman known only as 'The Major' who has been sent to Stalingrad under Hitler's direct orders to deal with 'Yuri'? Why is Tania, the beautiful Russian interpreter and herself a fearless warrior, so wracked with guilt?

" I'm ex military, Top Secret SIOP/ESI and all that bulshit. I just started reading it yesterday so now I need to figure how to navigate the web site so and get back to the 4th chapter. As a Buddhist, I'm never thrilled to read about killing as entertainment. As a degreed Political Science major I do appreciate the historical context in which this novel is written. Interestingly enough, I was Buddhist while in the U.S. Air Force and was assigned to Guam Island in 1972 to work with B-52 crews who were delivering them an early Christmas present, the bombing of North Vietnam. Le Duc Tho' (sp?) was dragging his feet at the Paris Peace Talks and Nixon/Kissinger wanted to light a fire under the North Vietnamese. I talked with my good Buddhist friend in Sacramento who was a retired Chief Master Sergeant, and he suggested that I chant, "to go where I could do the most for world peace." I chanted the Nichiren Buddhist phrase Nam-myoho-renge-kyo and strangely enough, my orders were changed to West Germany within two weeks. I ended up finishing my college degree while over there and planned nuclear air strikes into Eastern Europe. Of course they were never used, so the karma I created was much less than what I would have created if I'd been assigned to Guam." -- Steven, st paul, MN, USA.
