The Big One RP

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Ryand-Smith on Wed Feb 07, 2007 9:31 pm

June 6, 1947. Europe is being torn apart by a war no one can win. German troops occupy every territory from the Pyrenees to the Volga. In the east, Russian and American troops fight to stop the German advance. In the west, American carriers rule the Atlantic, hurling their midnight-blue fighter-bombers any and all targets they find.

America has one weapon left. One last card to play.

A fleet of the largest bombers the world has ever seen, the atomic weapons to arm them, and a plan to blast Germany out of the war with a single terrible blow,

In a world gone to Hell, the only option left
