THE ZONE 1 • HARD TARGET

The Zone, a chemical and nuclear contaminated hell, a broad swathe of Europe where the Warsaw Pact mass attacks have been stalled by NATO. Major Revells’ men have to enter it to destroy a Russian tank workshop concealed in the midst of a refugee camp.

SYNOPSIS

Major Revells’ tank hunter team are given the suicidal task of hunting down and destroying a crack Russian tank repair workshop. The elite unit is upgrading weapons and armour, getting it ready for a massed assault on the NATO front line. Crossing the severely contaminated terrain of the Zone the Special Combat Force have to enter the dangerous world of the refugees to find their target. They encounter a renegade group of East German deserters, the reviled Grepos, border guards. Through them they discover that the workshop has been sited underground, close to a huge refugee camp. Invulnerable to assault by any conventional means without unacceptable civilian losses, Revells’ men have to risk everything to attack at point blank range.

THE ZONE 2 • BLIND FIRE

A Russian armoured column has hurled across the Zone and is heading for Frankfurt, a soft target. Major Revells’ men are ordered to stop it. But they intend to destroy it down to the last tank, no matter what destruction and mayhem is necessary.

SYNOPSIS

Seemingly out of nowhere a powerful Russian armoured column has launched itself towards Frankfurt, crushing and thrusting aside any opposition. The city is unprotected, highly vulnerable and the only NATO force that can move to protect it is Major Revells’ tank hunter Special Combat Force. Ordered to halt the enemy, Major Revells’ men decide that half measures will not do, they have to utterly destroy the tanks and armoured personnel carriers. Employing only hand held weapons, time after time they ambush the Russian armour, blasting it apart at close range with anti-tank rockets and cannon fire until in the outskirts of the city both sides engage in a spectacular battle to the death.

But the attack force has been betrayed and the already powerful anti-aircraft defences have been massively reinforced. Faced with batteries of missiles, massed cannons and Shilka flak tanks the attack is scattered and brutally clawed from the sky. Surviving the slaughter Revells’ Special Combat Force finds itself deep inside enemy territory and has to engage in a running battle to carve a path through the enemy forces. Using stolen enemy vehicles they have to fight every inch of the way to return to the NATO lines.

THE ZONE 8 • CIVILIAN SLAUGHTER

The Special Combat force is hardened to horror but during a truce they find a KGB battalion has exceeded anything they’ve seen. In a fury, despite the truce, despite threats from their own commanders, they decide to extract a revenge. They set out to wipe them out the KGB battalion to the last man.

SYNOPSIS

The men of the Special Combat Force have become hardened to atrocities performed by the Warsaw Pact armies. Or they thought they had. During a shaky truce, when those highly trained and experienced fighters are given mundane jobs, they discover mass graves and evidence of the grossest atrocities being performed on civilians. The evidence is that the horrors are perpetrated by a KGB battalion opposite their position. Driven to fury by what they have witnessed the Special Combat Force decide to take matters into their own hands when their reports are ignored and they are even threatened with disbandment if they don’t drop the accusations. Extracting revenge and putting a stop to further violations makes them enemies on both sides but nothing stops them, and they won’t stop until the job is done.

THE ZONE 10 • DEATH MARCH

A Russian General plans to use refugees as a shield for his assault on a city. The Special Combat Force has been sent behind Russian lines to retrieve a damaged nuclear demolition device. They find they are the only NATO troops in a position to obstruct the enemy attack. The risk to them is as great as it is to the enemy.

SYNOPSIS

The Russian troops attacking Nurnberg are the dregs of the Warsaw Pact armies. Even the vast supplies of ammunition given to them does not make up for their being drawn from third rate formations and penal battalions. Then NATO uses nuclear demolition bombs to close their convoy routes and even that advantage is lost to the Russian General commanding the attack. He finds himself fighting intrigue within his own command as much as the NATO troops lined up against him.

Major Revell and the Special Combat Force have been sent to retrieve a damaged nuclear weapon from behind Warsaw Pact lines. They have to make a wide detour to return with it and discover the Russians have concealed a highly disciplined Division whose purpose is to make a flank attack on the city using refugees to breach the minefields and provide a shield. The Special Combat Force is the only unit that can thwart the surprise attack but to do so the risk is as great to them as it is to the enemy.
