To accomplish such a bold maneuver, Jeffrey Fuller must sneak a team of commandos into Russia to launch a nuclear missile -- against his own country. If successful, the Allies will be able to destroy the missile and use the event to pressure the Russians into an alliance. It's an all-or-nothing gambit, with no room for error. If the Russians discover the commandos, they will side with Berlin against the United States, a political disaster that will ensure victory for the Axis. If something goes wrong with the missile, Fuller could kill millions of people, and perhaps even initiate a full-blown nuclear holocaust.
Such worst-case scenarios assume that Fuller can first navigate his ship, the fast attack nuclear submarine USS Challenger, through the mine-strewn and submarine-patrolled waters between Alaska and Siberia, a nearly impossible feat unto itself.
It is a mission that will, one way or another, finally put an end to the war.
