Revenge of the Seventh Carrier by Peter Albano

Hidden by a sliding glacier in a secret anchorage in a cove on Siberia’s Chukchi Peninsula in 1941, the Imperial Japanese Navy’s largest carrier Yonaga was trapped in ice for 42 years…

Manned by samurai and commanded by Admiral Hiroshi Fujita, the crew subsisted on fish and seaweed while maintaining the ship, aircraft and weapons in top fighting trim…and staving off the advances of time.

Although many crewmen died during their years in the icy Arctic graveyard, in 1983 the carrier broke loose and steamed south through the Bering Sea, her crew determined to carry out their orders to attack Pearl Harbor.

Surprising Pearl Harbor’s defenders, Yonaga’s air groups destroyed carrier Tarawa and sank battleship New Jersey off Ford Island.
While a shocked world counted the dead, an orbiting Red Chinese particle beam weapon malfunctioned and decimated the high-tech machinery of the Earth’s former superpowers — every jet and rocket was instantly destroyed.

Only reciprocating engines were able to function…leading to a mad global scramble for World War II ships and planes.

Out of the ashes a brave new world arises, one distinctly different from our own world’s course of history and yet in many ways the same…

Now, as Moammar Kadafi’s elite troops rise against the alliance that protects the free world, Yonaga steams towards a rendezvous with the carrier USS Bennington.

The two powerful ships hope to combine forces and launch what they hope will be a devastating attack on the Libyan poison gas plant at Rabta — committing a huge number of bombers and fighters to take out one of their greatest threats.

But someone is sabotaging them from within…
