The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are mere footnotes in history, the west banished from the Middle East as a powerful new Caliphate unites the Islamic world. While Europe wallows in economic depression an army gathers on its borders, watching, waiting... When the order is given a massive truck bomb levels Whitehall, heralding the chaos that sweeps across Europe. Trapped beneath the streets of London by the unfolding mayhem, Prime Minister Harry Beecham must escape the city before it falls, his destination a secret crisis management complex where refuge awaits. Yet as Britain buckles under the military onslaught it becomes clear that sanctuary must lie elsewhere, far to the north, where the final battle for survival will trigger the largest evacuation ever witnessed. The past must be erased, Europe conquered, before the history of the world can finally be rewritten.
