From the Publisher:
At the awful dawn of a nuclear age - at the painful birth of the Cold War - The Citadel was constructed in secret beneath the Antarctic ice. Housing the most devastating weapon imaginable, it was a safeguard against an unseen threat far more potent than the growing Communist menace. Now, six decades later, America's destruction seems all but assured - because the enemy has re-emerged from the shadows of time.

And The Citadel has been breached.

The commander of Section 8 - a covert force of misfits assigned the impossible missions no one else will touch - Captain Jim Vaughn must now lead his unit into the unknown to diffuse a nightmare of astronomical proportions. The future hangs in the balance - and the ultimate survival of humankind is in the hands of men with nothing left to lose...

From the Publisher
Editors Note Sixty years after the construction of the Citadel, a top-secret installation built deep below the Antarctic ice to house a devastating weapon of unimaginable power, America is threatened by utter annihilation when a terrible enemy gains control of the Citadel, and it is up to Captain Jim Vaughn, commander of Section 8, and his misfit team, to stop them before it is too late. Original.
Editors Note 1 At the start of the Cold War, the greatest threat to America wasn't the Russians and the looming Communist threat. Rather, it was an elite organization bent on world domination, a group so powerful only nuclear weapons could safeguard against them. The CIA knew what these men were capable of, and in a last ditch attempt to protect America against them, they built two high–security arsenals deep within the earth––one declassified in the Nevada desert, and one heavily under wraps in Antarctica. For over 50 years, no one spoke of The Citadel, the fortress deep under the ice in Antarctica that held the most powerful weapon known to man––until the Organization returned, hellbent on destruction. Captain Jim Vaughn is a government agent known for performing missions no one else wants. So when an old colleague approaches him with an assignment, he can't refuse––even if the mission has been set in motion by a dead man's letter, found in Antarctica and dated 1949. The Citadel has been cracked, and the only man who can safeguard it is Vaughn. Nothing short of the fate of mankind rests on his shoulders.
