American troops, led by enormously likable General "Big Al" Malin, are sent to restore order; with Russian help, they snatch the nukes from the Ukrainian silos. But vengeful German Chancellor Johann Ruff, embittered since the waning days of WW II when allied bombs blew up his family, traps the American troops passing through his country with the Ukranian weapons and flexes some nuclear muscle of his own. In the cat-and-mouse game that follows, every strategic move by the Germans is either anticipated or countered by the Americans, who employ a clever plan devised by "Big Al" to make the Germans think he's an out-of-control warrior. The book has 16 battle maps. Will combine shipping on more than one book. .
