  • The unthinkable has come to pass. The Cold War turns hot and the United States and the Soviet Union unleash their nuclear arsenals upon each other.

    Millions die.

    Millions more are displaced.

    Germans battle side by side with Americans, Polish freedom fighters next to Russian fascists. The genie is out of the bottle. And there s no telling what fresh hell will come next.

    At the heart of “Fallout” are Harry Truman and Josef Stalin. Even as Joe McCarthy rises in power, the U.S. president is focused elsewhere, planning to cut off the head of the Soviet threat by taking out Stalin. It’s a daring gambit, but the Soviets have one of their own.

    Meanwhile, Europe s weak sisters, France and Italy, seem poised to choose the winning side, while China threatens to overrun Korea. With Great Britain ravaged and swaths of America in ruins, leaders are running out of options.

    When the United States drops another series of bombs to slow the Russian advance in Europe, Stalin strikes back with horrifying results.

    These staggering events unfold through the eyes of a sprawling cast of characters: a Holocaust survivor in a displaced persons camp in Washington; the wife of a bomber pilot and her five-year-old daughter starting a new existence; a savage Soviet fighter waging war by his own rules; a British pub owner falling in love with an American pilot.

    As the armies of the world implode, the next chapter will be written by the survivors those willing to rise up for an uncertain future.
