By Larry Schweikart
Co-Author of, A Patriot's background of the United States
Author of, America's Victories: Why the U.S. Wins Wars and should Win the struggle on Terror

From the instant an unholy alliance of Asian and Islamic powers varieties to make battle at the usa, the way forward for liberty during this mystery is doubtful. utilizing secretly constructed, excessive velocity, super-cavitating torpedoes and mines, the crimson chinese language and their allies threaten to do what no energy has performed within the twentieth century-dominate the USA at sea. Jeff Head weaves a narrative of what international War-perhaps the start of that's our conflict on terror -would be like, and it is not beautiful. it really is, notwithstanding, fullyyt plausible.

For twenty years, the U.S. has watched the chinese language communist governments disguise their socialist personality and fake to be unfastened marketplace capitalists, usually at our price. they've got received high-level expertise, in particular through the Clinton management, with none concessions to inner freedom, and feature flagrantly developed a blue-water military with one sole goal: to problem American dominance within the Pacific. unfortunately, even within the in a different way erstwhile Bush management, such advances haven't been tempered, not to mention reversed, with the most probably consequence being that, barring a awesome weakening of China from the interior (as happened with Soviet Russia), a clash with the purple chinese language is almost inescapable.

The excellent news is that, shortly, the us keeps a top quality area over our power enemies, and our submarines are greater by means of a number of orders of significance. however the chinese language see this as an incentive to enhance their very own courses. whereas an alliance akin to Jeff describes is not going within the brief time period, the realm has witnessed a lot stranger bedfellows on the drop of a hat.

Jeff's is a narrative of heroism, sacrifice, ache, and redemption. His research and outlines are so prescient that we needs to desire it continues to be a piece of fiction and never heritage before-the-fact.

If you take pleasure in examining big-and I suggest big-techno-thrillers, then Dragon's Fury through Jeff Head is for you. think a heritage of worldwide warfare , from the invasion of Poland till Hiroshima: that might provide you with an concept of the sweeping narrative during this "future historical past" of the following global warfare. In Jeff's state of affairs, communist China forges an alliance with a unified Islamic global, and brings a reluctant India aboard. China leads the best way, decided to force the U.S. out of the Mid-East, the Indian Ocean, Asia, and the Western Pacific.

The struggle starts off with a chain of shock assaults on American naval forces. The chinese language have secretly built and deployed new sessions of guns the USA army can't counter, together with hyper-speed super-cavitating torpedoes. With their leap forward guns and thousands of expendable squaddies, victory after victory is going to the Chinese-led axis, till a lot of the loose global is beaten and subjugated.

The defeat of the Unites States turns out yes, yet the United States and her final allies upward thrust to the problem. the USA deploys its personal leap forward guns and, with out freely giving an excessive amount of of the plot, Jeff's techno-thriller indicates that house stands out as the final "high ground," to figure out the end result of the following international war.

In one of these state of affairs might modern day bitterly divided the US unify and rally in the back of a powerful wartime President, and suffer the hardships of years of defeat? may possibly this type of warfare be fought, and never cross nuclear within the starting battles? I questioned approximately those questions, yet in Dragon's Fury, Jeff Head weaves a whole tale line that plausibly suspends the readers' disbelief, and takes her or him alongside for a wild trip that's the subsequent international war.
