The world continues to struggle with the Transition, anti terrorist naval forces from 2021 landing in 1942 in the middle the Battle of Midway (see WEAPONS OF CHOICE). The military technological leaps made by the allied forces are miraculous or perhaps demonic, but especially the Nazis and somewhat less the Communists also make fantastic jumps too. Nuclear proliferation and computer technology has arrived. However, Hitler and Stalin realize that the Third Reich and the Soviet State is in trouble as their respective progress lags in comparison to the Americans and the Brits. They reluctantly sign a peace pact to aid one another from the expected allied invasion.
Now fighting a one front war, Germany prepares to blitzkrieg England while the Japanese look to Australia. Meanwhile the future force warriors plan to defend England, but an irate J. Edgar Hoover has his own plans to destroy those who have humiliated him and destroyed much of his power base.
The key to this exciting sequel is the intrusion of the advanced twenty-first century military technology on World War II nations. The action is non-stop, but that takes a back seat to the sides rushing to gain a nuclear edge. What is interesting is the outcome is known so leaders try to avoid, enhance, or modify pivotal events in an intriguing paradoxical look at an alleged known future. The knowledge of the future and the technological incursion turn this Axis of Time tale into a thought provoking thriller.
