Reviews

Military strategist Peters applies the predictions of his nonfiction Wars of Blood and Faith to this outstanding cautionary tale of a near-future war set in the Middle East. Lt. Gen. Gary "Flintlock" Harris commands troops hitting the beaches of what was once Israel before it was nuked into total destruction. Muslim extremists have exploded dirty bombs in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and most of the major European cities in an attempt to bring about "the Great Jihad." America reacts by voting in a radical Christian government and reorganizing the National Guard as the Military Order of the Brothers in Christ (MOBIC). The fighting most resembles that of WWII as electronic jamming equipment cancels out the high-tech weaponry of each side, reducing the level of combat to suicide attacks and bayonet charges. Compelling characters, thrilling small-unit battle scenes and the terrifying possibility that it could all come true make this a must read. (Oct.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

While most writers use only their imagination to tell tales of the worst war imaginable, Ralph Peters also taps his background as a top intel officer to spin a terrific tale. His insight into the world of secret operations -- and the what-if horrors our military must consider daily -- makes this page-turner a must-read." --W.E.B. Griffin "The thinking man's Tom Clancy"--Wall Street Journal"Peters' battle scenes are masterpieces of perspective...it is hard to imagine a better portrayal of modern war." --Newsweek
