It is 1942, and the Russian defences have held… for now.
In his lair Hitler grows ever greedier for the black gold, the Caucasian oil fields he needs to fuel the Nazi war machine.
Some of his generals fear the cost of acquiring it will outweigh the gains, but the Führer has acquired a secret weapon, one as old as the accursed Northern wastelands.
Its target: the Tartar Redoubt, a position recently occupied by a battalion of glory-seeking Russian Guardsmen.
Unleashing the Cossacks, as horrific and bloodcurdling as the hounds of hell, it seems inevitable that the lines will break… but for the fact Punishment Battalion 333 is also there.
Beaten, broken, bloodied and battered, these traitors, reactionaries, pimps, murderers, whoremasters, black marketeers, perverts and fifth columnists are the last line of defence.
Once more it is the worst scum in the whole of Russia, her hated heroes, the Gulag Rats who must endeavour to save her, except this time the enemy is their own kind.
Even the devil himself won’t be able to save them…
Cossack Attack is a gripping World War Two thriller from master of the genre Charles Whiting. It was originally published under the pen name K. N. Kostov.
