The theme for these books was inspired by this quote:
War is the father of us all, king of all. Some it makes gods, some it makes men, some it makes slaves, some free.
About the World of Drei Universe
This series was inspired by Keith Laumer's Bolo stories. My story is set during a near future Russian civil war, and it's my take on artificial super intelligence's and their impact on how it changes the nature of wars.
Mission One: Book 1
Seventh Company's Lieutenant Morozova and Sergeant Rozhkov face an enemy that knows no fear, cannot be reasoned with, and does not stop until destroyed. On the verge of defeat, win or die, they must fight.
The first story of a future Russian civil war set in the World of Drei universe, "Mission One" tells of the desperate fight for survival against an enemy cybertank.
Regroup: Book 2
Trapped behind enemy lines when the enemy overran their command post, Sergeant Volkova and the wounded Captain Lenkov face a march across a frozen land. With limited supplies, their situation is dire.

Break Out: Book 3
