After capturing a Russian GRU Colonel named Pavel Doletskaya in Moscow, the Joint Strike Force (JSF) Team Victor retreats from Russia, with Sergeant Nathan Vatz as the only survivor of Team Victor. Colonel Doletskaya was interrogated by Major Alice Dennison back in the US. The colonel himself never answered a thing after he was tortured. Major Alice invited Charles Shakura, the best interrogator of the JSF. Yet the Colonel never answered a thing and Doletskaya was sent to Cuba. Meanwhile, the Outlaw Team of the US Marine 1st Force Recon were at Cuba when the team found a Learjet crashing on a field. The Outlaw Team found only one survivor, Charles Shakura. He told that this was only a decoy. Colonel Doletskaya was ferried to Cuba later on. After a combat between the Outlaw Team and the Russians, Terry Jones, the assistant of the Outlaw Team leader was shot in the neck by the Russians.

After launching Freedom Star space station from the JFK Space Center in 2020 (it's purpose being able to deploy US Marines any where in the world within 90 minutes), the space station was attacked by members of  Green Brigade (later found in the next book that the attack was performed by a splinter group called Forgotten Army), a powerful and infamous terrorist group. Many US Marines were killed and the Russians were blamed for this. Since then, Russia would conduct an operation codenamed Operation: 2659. Major Alice Dennison asked this question many times, "What is Operation 2659? Who is Snegurochka?". Colonel Doletskaya hold the key to these answers. Back at Tampa, Major Alice Dennison received a book from her father for her birthday. The book was entitled 'Russian Myths and Folklore'. She was reading when she found out that Snegurochka was a female character in Russian folktales. Major Alice believed that Snegurochka must a codename for a female GRU operative. Meanwhile, Commander Andreas and his team were in the submarine USS Florida submerged in the waters of Canada combatting Russian battleships and carriers with JDAM rockets. Major Stephanie Halverson and Captain Jake Boyd of USAF were flying over Canada with their F-35 Lightning II when they were under attack by Russian Ka-29 helos. After Jake's F-35 was shot down by the Russian helos, Major Halverson shot down many more Russian helos and tried to land the bird to rescue Jake. He refused to be rescued because Major Halverson had the risk of killing herself. Jake Boyd was then killed by the Spetsnaz Infantry after Major Halverson took off with the F-35. The US realized that Russia was invading Canada, the United States, and Europe. At that time, Russia was the world's leading gas and oil suppliers, while Canada was the world's second. After refueling at Igloo Base, Major Halverson with her new wingman Captain Lisa Johansson combatted more Russian helos when both of the F-35s were shot down. Major Halverson was the only one who survived the crash after ejecting. Back at the US, Major Alice Dennison figured out the answers to the questions. Operation 2659 is the invasion of North America and Europe, securing the remaining oil wells in the Middle East, and having Russian Allies in Africa engage US allies in Africa. And Snegurochka is Colonel Viktoria Antsyforov. Colonel Doletskaya was in love with Antsyforov until she apparently died.
