#2 Amazon best-seller in Historical Russian Fiction

The Allies are advancing on Berlin in the dying days of the Second World War in this gripping Nick Cook novel – but the Russians are plotting much more than the end of the Third Reich. Operation Archangel’s aim is for Soviet troops to blast their way straight to the English Channel.

With fake Soviet tanks lined up near the German border in Czechoslovakia, two British spy pilots stumble across this elaborate charade. Wing Commander Robert Fleming and Rhodesian expatriate Piet Kruze become the front line in the effort to defuse the Russian scheme. But they must first penetrate the heart of the Nazi defences and steal the one weapon that can possibly destroy Archangel: the cream of the new generation of German jet fighter bombers.



The aide-de-camp to the Chief of the General Staff of the Red Army worked furiously to decipher the signal that had just come in from General Nerchenko on the First Ukrainian front, but long before he reached the end he reckoned that Plan Archangel was dead.



Latest reviews on Amazon:

The action in this story never falters, and the twists and turns in the plot will keep the reader guessing and often surprised. Those who know Nick Cook as a consultant/writer for Jane’s Defense Weekly and for his more recent non-fiction book, The Hunt for Zero Point, may not be aware of his novels published in the early 1990s. Cook brings to them expertise in military matters and his own experience as a journalist, and in fact, one can easily see Tom Girling as a continuing character in future novels. I highly recommend Aggressor and Cook’s first novel, Angel, Archangel–they are well-written and highly entertaining reading.” 4★

A mysterious Islamic organization called the Angels of Judgment galvanizes the Middle East with a series of raids in which its members take high-level Russian and American diplomats as hostages. The action in this story never falters — Cook picked me up and hurtled me through myriad twists and turns that kept me guessing right to the final page.” 5★
