Overview

WWIII explodes in this electrifying debut military thriller in the tradition of Red Storm Rising and The Third World War.

“Delta-Two, I’ve got tanks through the wire! They’re everywhere!”
 
World War III explodes in seconds when a resurgent Russian Empire launches a deadly armored thrust into the heart of Germany. With a powerful blizzard providing cover, Russian tanks thunder down the autobahns while undercover Spetsnaz teams strike at vulnerable command points.
 
Standing against them are the woefully undermanned American forces. What they lack in numbers they make up for in superior weapons and training. But before the sun rises they are on the run across a smoking battlefield crowded with corpses.
 
Any slim hope for victory rests with one unlikely hero. Army Staff Sergeant George O'Neill, a communications specialist, may be able to reestablish links that have been severed by hostile forces, but that will take time. While he works, it’s up to hundreds of individual American soldiers to hold back the enemy flood.
 
There’s one thing that’s certain. The thin line between victory and defeat is also the red line between life and death.

The horrors of nuclear warfare coupled with nerve-wracking tank battles keep you reading. Solid character development with heart wrenching acts of bravery .

That was he bloodiest book I have read since SHOGUN. It was fast moving, gripping and one, as a 72 year old Veteran Air Force comm guy, from the Viet Nam era, I could thoroughly relate to. Lastly it exemplifies the continuing adage and that is,MAN'S CONTINUING INHUMANITY TO MAN! A.E. FreundVictorville, Ca.

The story is fine as a work of pure fiction, but is so full of inaccuracies when it comes to the weapon systems and tactics involved, it's hard to take seriously. I don't know what the author did in the military, but it obviously wasn't combat arms.

The Story line Starts Great. Several Interesting Characters And Sub-Stories. The Last 25% Of Story Totally Un-Realistic. All The Main Characters Killed Off In Crazy Ways. Ending Rushed And Poorly Written. As A War Fighter And Former Tactical Law Enforcement Operator I Rate This Story About A THREE (3)....
