The summer 1977. A Russian submarine runs aground close by the Swedish naval harbour Karlskrona. The situation is interpreted as sharp by the Swedish naval forces and the submarine is sunk. CCCP immediately responds by launching extensive transferring of forces to their Baltic seacoast. Sweden mobilizes. Three days after the sinking of U-111, CCCP launches their invasion of Gotland. NATO threatens to use “all means at hand” against the Warsaw pact if CCCP goes further west or over another states national border. The response is immediate; “CCCP is answering on an act of war from a hostile state and have no other intention than to defend itself and will continue its defence with all means available if any additional actor will interfere”. A frail but stable balance of terror is reached between the Warsaw pact and NATO: CCCP will not go further than Gotland and NATO will not interfere. Sweden stands alone against the giant from the east.
Gotland and the troops which fast mobilize on the island, locally and embarked from the rest of Sweden stands before a strong enemy. Will the Swedish people endure or will they be conquered by the formidable war machine of the Soviet Union?
