Carrier #19: First Strike
Book Nineteen in the Acclaimed Naval Aviation Series
Though the Soviet Union has long been disbanded, a group of radical hard-line Russian military officers refuses to end the Cold War without one last blast. They’ve taken over an airfield in Bermuda—and are ready to launch a nuclear attack on the United States. The Russian government, hoping to maintain their precarious position in the new world order, would like to handle the crisis on their own.
But desperate situations call for desperate action. Tombstone MacGruder and the Carrier Battle Group are called in to take the airfield out before the missiles are launched. And if they don’t nail the nukes in time, the U.S. may lose the Cold War after all…
