It is the summer of 1947 and Europe is being torn apart by a war nobody can win. Nazi Germany occupies everything from the Pyrenees to the Volga, from Britain to the Alps. In the east, Russian and American Armies fight together, holding the line on the Volga to prevent the German Army from breaking through. In the West, American aircraft carriers rule the Atlantic, hurling their hordes of midnight-blue fighter-bombers against every target they can find. Yet, nothing can stop the madness. Now, America has one last hand left to play. A fleet of the largest bombers the world has ever seen and a plan to bring the war to an end with a single, terrible blow. Now, in the skies over Germany, nuclear-armed B-36 bombers fight their way past German jet and rocket fighters in a final cataclysmic confrontation. In a world gone to hell, the only option left is The Big One.
