When a leased Boeing 727 is violently hijacked from Angola and flown to parts unknown, the President turns to an outsider—Major Carlos Guillermo Castillo—for answers. A pilot, West Point graduate, and veteran of Desert Storm, Castillo has a sharp eye for the facts—and the truth behind them. In Africa, he is helped and hindered by unexpected allies and ruthless enemies, and begins to untangle a plot of horrific dimensions—a plot that, unless Castillo acts quickly, will end very, very badly.
Commodore Arthur Laner and the crew of Peregrine have driven the remnants of the Ja-jee invasion fleet from the Brasilia star system, but it has been a pyrrhic victory. The missile carrier fleet and Swarm fleet are gone. Brasilia is smashed. And the Ja-gee will be back, worse than ever before. Laner and Peregrine must rescue survivors, establish a new base, make salvage into starships, and train the battle groups that will carry the fight to the Ja-gee. That would have been too much as it is. But unlocking the secrets of a captured Ja-gee juggernaught poses more questions than it answers. Assassins wait around every corner. Nepotism puts incompetent officers in critical posts. And the Ja-gee are making their own preparations. Can Humanity survive, or is Laner just delaying the inevitable?
HISTORY. Stalin's reign of terror in the Soviet Union has been called 'the other Holocaust'. During the Stalin years, it is thought that more innocent men, women and children perished than in Hitler's destruction of the European Jews. Many millions died in Stalin's gulag of torture prisons and forced-labour camps, yet others survived and were freed after his death in 1953. This book is the story of the survivors. Long kept secret by Soviet repression and censorship, it is now told by renowned author and historian Stephen Cohen.
