The year is 1985 and the Cold War threatens to turn hot. A Soviet agent is sent to join a Soviet Carrier Battle Group in the North Atlantic, his mission to plant a sensor to track British nuclear powered submarines as they set off to patrol the oceans. To mask his bold assignment a complex diversionary operation is launched from the decks of the aircraft carrier “Kiev”, the pride of the Soviet Northern Fleet. The target; British military radar installations on the coastline. Commanders respond by deploying Phantom fighters to a remote base in western Scotland to assist the Quick Reaction Alert forces where a tense stand-off develops. Could these be the opening moves of World War 3 or will the intrepid fighter crews foil the Soviet efforts?
As with all his books David Gledhill takes you into the cockpit with unparalleled realism for another high octane adventure in the skies.
