From the instant an unholy alliance of Asian and Islamic powers types to make conflict at the usa, the way forward for liberty during this mystery is unsure. utilizing secretly built, excessive pace, super-cavitating torpedoes and mines, the crimson chinese language and their allies threaten to do what no strength has performed within the twentieth century-dominate the USA at sea. Jeff Head weaves a narrative of what global War-perhaps the start of that's our struggle on terror -would be like, and it's not lovely. it's, in spite of the fact that, totally plausible.
For twenty years, the us has watched the chinese language communist governments disguise their socialist personality and faux to be unfastened marketplace capitalists, usually at our rate. they've got got high-level know-how, particularly throughout the Clinton management, with none concessions to inner freedom, and feature flagrantly developed a blue-water military with one sole objective: to problem American dominance within the Pacific. unfortunately, even within the another way erstwhile Bush management, such advances haven't been tempered, not to mention reversed, with the most likely outcome being that, barring a notable weakening of China from the interior (as happened with Soviet Russia), a clash with the crimson chinese language is sort of inescapable.
The excellent news is that, shortly, the USA keeps a top quality part over our power enemies, and our submarines are enhanced via numerous orders of value. 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 is still a piece of fiction and never background 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 historical past of global warfare , from the invasion of Poland till Hiroshima: that would offer you an idea of the sweeping narrative during this "future historical past" of the following international warfare. In Jeff's state of affairs, communist China forges an alliance with a unified Islamic international, and brings a reluctant India aboard. China leads the way in which, decided to force the U.S. out of the Mid-East, the Indian Ocean, Asia, and the Western Pacific.
The conflict starts with a sequence of shock assaults on American naval forces. The chinese language have secretly built and deployed new sessions of guns the U.S. military 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 unfastened international is overwhelmed and subjugated.
The defeat of the Unites States turns out yes, yet the USA and her last allies upward push to the problem. the USA deploys its personal step forward guns and, with no freely giving an excessive amount of of the plot, Jeff's techno-thriller indicates that area stands out as the final "high ground," to figure out the end result of the subsequent global war.
In any such situation might cutting-edge bitterly divided the USA unify and rally at the back of a powerful wartime President, and undergo the hardships of years of defeat? might any such warfare be fought, and never move nuclear within the starting battles? I questioned approximately those questions, yet in Dragon's Fury, Jeff Head weaves an entire tale line that plausibly suspends the readers' disbelief, and takes her or him alongside for a wild journey that's the subsequent international war.
