обложка книги Sacrifice Sacrifice

Sacrifice is the fifth book in the Red Gambit series.

As the bloody days of 1945 give way to the incoming New Year, Europe finds itself in the grips of the most severe winter since records began.

Temperatures plunge, incapacitating the armies of both sides, but not enough to stop the dying. The war descends into a frozen stalemate, marked by aggressive patrolling, death from the air, and the simple struggle to stay alive in record low temperatures.

As the soldiers shiver in their foxholes, spies ply their trade, gathering information, deceiving the enemy, and obtaining knowledge that feeds the planners of both sides, who wait for the time that the snows have gone, and when they can let loose the dogs of war once more.

[The ‘Red Gambit Series’ novels are works of fiction, and deal with fictional events. Most of the characters therein are a figment of the author’s imagination. Without exception, those characters that are historical figures of fact or based upon historical figures of fact are used fictitiously, and their actions, demeanour, conversations, and characters are similarly all figments of the author’s imagination.]

обложка книги Sentinels of Fire Sentinels of Fire

P.T. Deutermann's World War II navy series began with the award-winning Pacific Glory, followed by the brilliantly reviewed Ghosts of Bungo Suido. His new novel Sentinels of Fire tells the tale of a lone destroyer, the USS Malloy, part of the Allied invasion forces attacking the island of Okinawa and the Japanese home islands.


By the spring of 1945, the once mighty Japanese fleet has been virtually destroyed, leaving Japan open to invasion. The Japanese react by dispatching hundreds of suicide bombers against the Allied fleet surrounding Okinawa. By mid-May, the Allied fleet is losing a major ship a day to murderous swarms of kamikazes streaming out of Formosa and southern Japan. The radar picket line is the first defense and early warning against these hellish formations, but the Japanese direct special attention to these lone destroyers stationed north and west of Okinawa.

One destroyer, the USS Malloy, faces an even more pressing issue when her Executive Officer Connie Miles begins to realize that the ship's much-admired Captain Pudge Tallmadge is losing his mind under the relentless pressure of the attacks. Set against the blazing gun battles created by the last desperate offensive of the Japanese, Executive Officer Miles and the ship's officers grapple with the consequences of losing their skipper's guidance — and perhaps the ship itself and everyone on board.

Vividly authentic, historically accurate, and emotionally compelling, Sentinels of Fire is military adventure at its best, by an author whose career as a Navy captain informs every page.

The summer of 1917.

Britain is losing the war against the deadly German U-boats.

After a close fought action, Commander David Smith uncovers what he believes is a deadly plot against Britain from a dying German sailor. Code-named SchwerttrZiger — or Swordbearer — it could turn the tide of the war in Germany's favour. But nobody will listen to him. He is under suspicion, and ignored. With just one one ancient destroyer, a turtle-back ‘thirty-knotter’ known as ‘Bloody Mary’, under his command, he must wage this battle on his own. Smith has to take on shore batteries and bigger, faster enemy destroyers. He has to fight the hostility of his commanding officer and is plunged into a world of espionage behind enemy lines. Through it all the mystery behind ‘Schwerttriiger’ lures him on — until he stakes his career and his life in a desperate attempt to solve it.

Ship of Force’ is an edge-of-the-seat WWI naval adventure that combines thrilling story-telling with meticulous research.

обложка книги Silent Sea Silent Sea

As they listened to the death throes of their sister ship Mako sinking in the Pacific where the waters were six miles deep, the crew of USS Eelfish suddenly came of age. They were a new breed: a brand-new fleet submarine crewed by draftees and reservists. Hidebound regular Navy officers believed they wouldn’t fight. But fight they did with reckless abandon, proving themselves on two fronts — against the Japanese at sea, and against their own Admirals, who clung to outmoded concepts of how to wage war under the sea.

This true-to-life novel moves at breathtaking speed from the invasion of Guadalcanal through the battle of the Philippine Sea and to the coast of Japan. By the end of the war, submarines such as Eelfish had so tightened the noose of naval blockade around Japan that the enemy was finished as an industrial nation, unable to fight effectively.

But American submariners paid dearly for their victories. One out of every five men who went to sea in submarines in the Pacific died in combat, the highest percentage of any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. This is a novel about their exploits, how they fought, how they loved, and how they died, written by a man who was there.


Harry Homewood was a qualified submariner before he was seventeen years old, having lied to the Navy about his age, and serving in a little "S"-boat in the old Asiatic Fleet. After Pearl Harbor he reenlisted and made eleven war patrols in the Southwest Pacific. He later became Chicago Bureau Chief for Newsweek, chief editorial writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, and for eleven years had his own weekly news program syndicated to thirty-two PBS television stations.

обложка книги Storm Front Storm Front

In 1941, Adolf Hitler didn’t declare war on the United States. Now, in 1985, the Third Reich stretching from the coast of France to the icy wastes of Eastern Russia, appears supremely powerful. With a powerful force of nuclear warheads and the finest military machine on Earth, there is no hope for freedom for the billions who groan under its rule. Adolf Hitler’s mad dreams have come to pass.

And yet, all is not well in the Reich. The cold war with the United States and the North Atlantic Alliance is destroying the Reich’s economy, while a savage insurgency in South Africa – a war the Reich cannot win and dares not lose – is sapping its military strength. And, while the Reich Council struggles to find a way to save the Reich from its own weaknesses, a young German girl makes a discovery that will shake the Reich to its core.

But the Reich Council will not go quietly into the night…

обложка книги Strafbatallion 999 Strafbatallion 999

Strafbataillon 999 – das ist eine jener Straf- und Bewährungseinheiten, die der Landser schlicht und treffend "Himmelfahrtskommandos" nannte. Deutsche Soldaten, die sich größtenteils nur geringfügiger Vergehen schuldig gemacht hatten, wurden darin zusammengefaßt und härtestem Drill unterworfen. Die Männer kamen in den vordersten Linien zum Einsatz – überall da, wo es am gefährlichsten war, wo der Dreck am tiefsten und das Blut so wertlos war wie das Spülwasser der Feldküche. Kein Wunder, daß von Tausenden nur eine Handvoll überlebte.

обложка книги Surface! Surface!

The original novel of submarine warfare, available for the first time as an ebook after selling over half a million copies in its original editions.

Written with a blazing intensity, it is a stirring and compellingly authentic journey through the greatest conflict in history, drawing upon the author’s first-hand experience. Get ready for adventure!

Surface! is Fullerton’s first novel, released in 1953 and based on his own life as a submarine torpedo officer. A tale of one crew’s hardship, camaraderie and great daring on board a British submarine serving in Asian waters during the Second World War.

This is life on HMS Seahound: routine and special operations; boarding Chinese junks; creeping through minefields; engaging a Japanese cruiser; evading depth charges; returning to the port of Ceylon and the Depot Ship; and then off again into action with unerring zeal. But can they keep evading tragedy forever? And if the war ends, will they really be able to cope with life on the surface?

  •  Штурм дворца Амина: версия военного разведчика
     Кошелев Владимир Михайлович

    В представляемой читательскому вниманию книге члена Союза писателей России и Национального союза писателей Украины, ветерана спецназа военной разведки и афганского похода советской армии Владимира Кошелева даётся анализ событий государственного переворота, произошедшего в Кабуле 27 декабря 1979 года. Основное внимание сосредоточено вокруг центрального пункта этого драматического действа – штурма советским спецназом ГРУ Генштаба и КГБ СССР дворца афганского диктатора Х. Амина.

    В основу данного исследования положены не только официальные документы того периода, но и воспоминания непосредственных участников этих событий, малоизвестные самодеятельные песенно-поэтические тексты офицеров спецназа. Многие выводы, наблюдения и оценки, сделанные автором, заставляют по-новому взглянуть на ряд фактических обстоятельств, связанных с принятием решения о вводе советских войск в Афганистан и практическим ходом осуществления этой акции.

     Луговой Николай Дмитриевич
     Документальная литература, Биографии и Мемуары, Проза, О войне

    Мемуары одного из бывших руководителей партизанского движения в Крыму Н. Д. Лугового — документальное повествование о героической борьбе партизан и подпольщиков за освобождение Крымского полуострова от фашистских оккупантов в годы Великой Отечественной войны. Плечом к плечу с русскими, украинцами, белорусами, грузинами, представителями других национальностей Советского Союза мужественно сражались словацкие, румынские, испанские антифашисты.

    Автор рассказывает о дружбе, которая, зародившись в грозные годы войны, еще более окрепла в мирное время. Книгу, впервые вышедшую в издательстве «Крым» в 1965 году, Н. Д. Луговой переработал, дополнил новыми материалами и документами.

  •  Прощёное воскресенье
     Мончинский Леонид Васильевич
     Проза, Историческая проза, О войне

    Однажды в глухомани журналист Леонид Мончинский встретил семью: старуха-мать и уже немолодой сын, крестьянин и охотник. Они были когда-то сосланы как члены семьи врага народа. Их биографии отразили трагедию установления советской власти в Сибири. Она и стала фабулой повести «Прощеное воскресенье».

    Обратившись к теме Гражданской войны, автор стремится уйти от однозначных характеристик. Его красные вовсе не ангелы, но и те, кто был против нех, тоже без нимба над головой. Война показана как жестокое и кровавое, и по большому счету бессмысленное противостояние сильных мужчин.

    Чтение повести даже нынче — тяжелый душевный труд. Тогда же она произвела просто шокирующее впечатление. О публикации «Прощеного воскресенья» в СССР нельзя было и помыслить. Её издали за рубежом в журнале «Вече».

    Много позже это произведение было удостоено литературной премии имени Василия Шукшина и литературной основой сценария фильма «Волчья кровь», снятого в 1984 году Николаем Стамбулой
