Yeah probably will be off line for a week, MARK will be so happy No Politics!
The book is the second of a series.

The first book had me by its jacket cover.... Scanning the shelves at Barnes and Noble I recognized a WW2 cruiser by its outline but it was in the science fiction aisle....

My fathers actual WW2 heavy cruiser while in rough seas at night collides with
The inner most ships of a 21st century fleet sent accidently back in time through a electromagnetic pulse..

bad timing as the 21st century ships have intruded into the American Battlefleet fighting the Battle of midway, two of the Japanese Defense Force Destroyers are missing as well as a German cruiser assigned to the NATO fleet exercise....

Starting the 2nd book I know where the Japanese Destoyers went, Yamamoto can use them, the intelligence files and histories were forwarded to both Russia and Germany who seeing what the future holds have declared a peace treaty and Germany is now really pushing for an invasion of England...

Yeah once this one is done Human Game is released on Tuesday... Maybe I'll be back before the elections Mark!

Guess there's going to be a book three, Yamamoto took Hawaii?, The Brits fought off the German Invasion though SS infantry and tanks rolled into south England.... The DC3 Dakota gun ships with 20mm rotary cannon stopped them cold... Patton was mad cause he got there too late... Khrushchev managed to off Joe Stalin, but Beria put paid to him and is looking to take Poland while Hitler tries to regroup...

Ever wonder what a 2012 littoral stealth cruiser armed with cruise missiles could do to the Tirpitz, Lutzow, Bismarck, battle groups? Here's the answer...... The Germans never had a chance and never got off a shot, the whole battle was done BVR, Beyond Visual Range....

BUT once done expending those rounds of missiles and even 20mm chained cannon rounds for antiaircraft defense they were helpless against the Luftwaffe...500 pounds of TNT is the same whether in the form of a Stuka delivered bomb or a smart guided missile....

Good read.
