Return of the Rising Sun

The Last Reich

Invasion England 1917 /

 The Swiss Pikemen

The year is 1964.  The Second Battle of Guadalcanal rages in the South Pacific as the United States makes a bold attempt to free ten thousand Allied prisoners who have been languishing in Japanese prisoner-of-war camps since the disastrous defeat of 1950.  Surely a modern navy, equipped with giant aircraft carriers and flying the latest jets, will prove more than a match for the undefeated Japanese Imperial Fleet.

America 1960:  After nearly ten years under the control of the victorious Nazi regime, the United States is gripped by economic depression and mired in spiritual despair.  As the oppressed citizens plod through their grim reality of their day-to-day lives, there is a whisper of hope.  The underground movement -- a dauntless network of American patriots -- is preparing a major strike against the hated Blackshirt occupiers.  The weapons are different at the Second Battle of Lexington, but the courage is the same.

Invasion England 1917

A timeless mystery. The home fleet is destroyed at Scapa Flow, Scotland.   The Germans are poised to invade England, and evidence points to one of the five most important men in England as a traitor.

The Swiss Pikemen

The Swiss Pikemen is the alternate history of the actual invasion of Switzerland by the Austrians in the year 1386.
