I've been reading quite a bit recently, more than I have for a long time. As a fan of alternate history and military fiction, I had a search on Amazon and came across the 'Red Gambit' series, which begins with Opening Moves.
This series posits a Soviet attack upon the western allies in July '45 with nothing differing from actual historical events up to this point. The story follows the pattern established in other 3rd world war novels - such as Red Storm Rising - of following characters on both sides of the fight and moving around the war zones.
There are a few innovations in the story - such as ex-SS officers instructing the allies on how to fight the Reds and a novel use for Nazi vehicles captured by the Soviets - that have made this series, IMO, an enjoyable read.
The series continues with Breakthrough, followed by Stalemate, then Impasse and is not finished yet (the 5th volume has yet to be released). Each paperback volume costs around £10-11 and they vary from 600-800 pages, although the kindle versions are much cheaper (£3-4).
Personally, I would recommend this series to anyone interested in Third World War stories. Apart from being a cracking good read, it certainly makes a change of pace from the usual acronym-filled, technology-heavy stories.
HOWEVER, if grammar mis-use of things like apostrophes, they're/there/their, we're/where/were, etc is something that you find excessively annoying, then perhaps these books will not be for you ...
