Meister H. form Sweden has just forwarded this to me.

new cover

Here is the description from this SITE:

The year is 1954, and in a dark and violent alternate history, the Great War never ended. When the occult-obsessed Reich sets its sights on an ancient artifact held in Washington, D.C.'s Smithsonian Castle, the ruthless General Hermann Von Heizinger plans an unprecedented raid on U.S. soil...and only Major John MacNeal and the elite soldiers of the 42nd Marines stand before them There's more to this mission than meets the eye, however. Why has the enigmatic Matriarchy mobilized its forces? And to whom is the mysterious mercenary Wolf truly loyal? Prepare for an epic battle that will rage deep into America's heartland.

I’m not familiar with the author but here is his Wikipedia entry:

Amazon UK lists it as available August 21st 2012, but gives no other info, I did not ses it on Amazon USA at the time of publishing, but I’m sure it will be up soon. However, you can find it on Barnes and Nobel's site.

Thanks again Meister H.
