Itís January, 1945. Stalingrad has fallen, and the Allied invasions of Italy and Normandy have been halted by the German army and air force, leaving the majority of the European continent firmly under Nazi control. The protagonist, a US pilot assigned to intelligence duties, slowly uncovers the horrible news that Germany is both developing atomic weapons and the means of rocketing them across the Atlantic to attack America. Worse, Allied intelligence analysts like himself are being slaughtered in and around London, making him more vulnerable and a bigger target the more he uncovers. And, inside a war-torn Germany, a Luftwaffe pilot is being trained to fly the first atomic mission against the United States. Target: Washington, DC. |
(Includes extrapolation of actual weaponry development that occurred during WWII, both Allied and German, including the German nuclear bomb program, two-stage intercontinental ballistic missiles, ground-to-air anti-aircraft rockets, jet interceptors, and advanced propeller aircraft. In the international society of plastic aircraft modeling enthusiasts, the concept of an extended WWII in which Germany may have become ascendant again is known as the 1946 Luftwaffe.)
