The time is now, a few years after the former Soviet Union became democratic and friendly with the whole world. The military exercises on the American soil would mark the new beginning in the East-West relations. That is when the anti-Western coalition led by the FSB (the successor of the KGB) is planning to strike taking the world over by force.
The new war, as a chess game, unfolds with masterful moves of the FSB General Konev and folds in with the masterful counter-moves of the American General Foster.
This is a riveting novel of international intrigue that brings the world to the brink of World War III.
