Holding Action is live!

Matt Bowen and his team made it out of Slovakia by the skin of their teeth.

But the fight’s not over.  And there’s no rest for the weary.

The European Defense Council, desperate to salvage their dream of a Europe reshaped in their image, threaten invasion of Poland.

The Triarii and what is left of American forces in Northern Europe stand by their Polish allies.  But they’re outnumbered and outgunned.

And they might well be watching the wrong part of the border.

The brutal series about the next World War continues in a storm of fire and steel!

Today is the day.  The battle for Poland has commenced.  Those who pre-ordered the Kindle version should have it downloaded by now.

Holding Action is even bigger in scale than Escalation.  Parts of it were a real challenge to write.  As a reviewer for Escalation pointed out, my forte has long been small-unit, clandestine operations, with some intense, but small-scale combat.  This gets into combined arms battle in a big way.  Of course, with things proceeding as they are, how long this phase of the Maelstrom Rising series will last is anyone’s guess…

Unfortunately, only the ebook is live.  We’ve run into some technical snags with KDP paperback; their cover templates are not fitting the actual dimensions needed, and we’ve been trying to adjust things, but they don’t give precise dimensions for corrections.  So, we’re bracketing the target and getting closer, but, long story short, the paperback isn’t ready yet.  It will be by the end of next week, though.

Here’s hoping you enjoy Holding Action, and if you do, please consider leaving a review on Amazon.
