Product description:
2024. The world we know is crumbling. A devastating war in the Persian Gulf has left the global economy in ruins, and civilization itself is beginning to crack under the strain.

When a war-weary task force of NATO ships races against time and a rival fleet to prevent Brazil's descent into a murderous civil war, their mission is unexpectedly upset by a mysterious tempest. Thrown back in time, Captains Steven Flynn and Florian Hallwinter with their crews emerge in the year 1940 as the world is gripped in the fires of World War Two.

Presented with the opportunity to change both past and future for the better, they find themselves drawn into a maelstrom of conflicting interests. While overcoming the suspicion of their natural allies of the time proves harder than they imagined, they soon discover that even the best intentions carry the seeds of doom. For whereas Flynn is American, Hallwinter and his crew are from Germany...

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?
It takes a more mature approach to what would happen if people - even with the best of intentions - find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. It's a book that doesn't go the easy route, it's detailed, and it sometimes shows the evil of Nazi Germany in all its banality as well as the clash of cultures between people who are from the same nation, but from different times.

Q: Why did you go indie?
I liked the freedom of choice it's given me. Sure, it's more work - doing the promotion, searching for illustrators, beta-readers, editors and reviewers myself, but at the end of the day I can sleep well knowing that the book I hold in my hands is exactly the way *I* want it to be.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?
William Forstchen and Robert Conroy, with John Birmingham a close second. Though to be honest, I think George R.R. Martin's influence as a writer on me was greater than that of those three combined.
