Publisher's Summary

The second wave has been unleashed...

The forces of the Warsaw Pact storm west over the Inner German Border and unleash devastation on the first days of the conflict. Among the NATO defenders of West Germany are Captain Kurt Mohr and his company of Leopard tanks. Outgunned and outnumbered, the men must conduct vital delaying operations until reinforcements can mobilize to stop the communists in their tracks.

After a harrowing battle to prevent the Czechoslovakian army from capturing a key bridge over the Danube, Mohr and his tanks are ordered to reinforce a battalion of grenadiers. The mission: buy time for the rest of his panzer brigade to prepare defenses around the key city of Landshut. Attacked by endless waves of enemy tanks, infantry, and aircraft, they must hold up at all costs, even while the pressure mounts and the number of casualties skyrockets.

To make matters worse, Mohr’s leadership is challenged at every step by internal politics that jeopardize the mission and his men’s lives. Each critical decision brings the company to the brink of tearing itself apart, posing a threat as dangerous as the enemy itself. 

Can Mohr keep his men together and stay alive, or will his first day of war be his last?

Excerpt from the book:

“After increasing his magnification on the PERI scope, Mohr noticed infantry climbing out the roof hatches of several carriers. No doubt, they were there to suppress enemy armor with anti-tank missiles and RPGs while the rest of their regiment rushed forward. 

It was bad news. 

With a range of three kilometers, the wire-guided missiles could badly damage or even destroy a Leopard tank. If the infantry got close enough, the rocket-propelled grenades would burrow right through his thin rear armor. The OT-64s had to die.”

Think Team Yankee on Steroids A Lot of Steroids

The book is very short and not worth the price they're charging for it. The story wasn't very believable. A company of tanks takes out an entire regiment of Soviet tanks. Then drives around the countryside and gets into fight after fight all with out resupply and all with in 24 hours. Also the idea that leadership would be that bad between a platoon leader and company commander is beyond believable. Don't waste your money.

You Go To War With The Equipment On Hand

The West Germany Leopard I, was an older generation MBT by the start of the war detailed in this fictional story set in 1985. The story is action packed with a well rounded main character. I highly recommend this story and the World at War 1985 series.
