hile an economic slump has forced the United States to cut back its military budget, China forges ahead with a whole new slate of cutting-edge weapons. Sensing they have a decided advantage now in Asia, the Chinese military begins to push American forces in the region.
ith little money to spend on new weapons, U.S. President Kenneth Phoenix is in a quandary. How can he counter what is obviously a Chinese move to claim the number one position in this part of the world? Retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Patrick McLanahan has the answer. All the government has to do to counter Chinese aggression is refurbish some old but still very potent long-range bombers.
s McLanahan gets ready to deploy the planes in an AirSea Battle Task Force in the South China Sea, all hell breaks loose. The commander of China's South Sea Fleet isn't about to let McLanahan take away his newly won strategic position without a challenge.
he situation reaches a boiling point with a number of aggressive actions that suggest a major confrontation is about to occur. With the stakes never higher and a world war hanging in the balance, McLanahan is walking a tightrope and one misstep means Armageddon.
ale Brown incorporates cutting edge weapons and aeronautics technology in this latest action adventure that is bound to reach the best seller lists like his previous novels.
