Berlin,1945: Karl Fairburne is an elite sniper working for the American secret service behind enemy lines. Stalin’s troops have overrun the city to revenge the battle of Stalingrad. They must seize control of Nazi nuclear secrets before their British and American allies. SS General Helmstadt, head of the Nazi nuclear program, is defecting to Russia, but first he plans the ultimate act of vengeance, to make the US pay for the defeat of the Third Reich. If he succeeds Russia will win the Cold War before it has even begun. Karl has one chance to stop him and a single sniper’s bullet will change the course of history.
