An event in the alternate timeline of The Ice War
In May 1939 the Russian military cloudship Dmitri Donskoi foundered with all hands in the icy wilderness of the southern continent Alba*. Complications caused by the ongoing Republican Rebellion and the impending austral winter delayed search and rescue attempts. When spring arrived five months later, an ice-tracker of the Danish Canopus-patruljen gendarmerie discovered the wreck.
