The year is 1954. Tsar Josef I (known to the world as "Stalin") unleashes the wrath of the Holy Soviet Army on the decadent oligarchies of the West. Nations are sundered, cities are levelled in the fury of the first assault. Millions perish amid the fury and the flames as forbidden technologies and unnatural scienctific discoveries are unleashed.
But the war quickly slides out of control, spreading to Asia, Arabia, Africa and across the Atlantic to engulf the Americas... As bitter warfare rages from pole to pole, mankind's very survival hangs in the balance.
