Description

A Russian military strike against Europe could change the balance of power in the West. A stunningly realistic view of modern warfare from a battlefield commander and the New York Times bestselling author of The Gray Man

The Russian bear has awakened. Their tanks race across Poland crushing all opposition on a headlong dash for the heart of Germany. Satellite killing missiles blind American forces while Spetznatz teams destroy Allied communications relays. It's all part of a master plan to confuse and defeat America and her allies.

Ranged against the Russian attack are a Marine lieutenant colonel pulled out of a cushy job at the Pentagon and thrown into the fray, a French Special Forces captain and his intelligence operative father, a young Polish female partisan fighter, an A-10 Warthog pilot, and the captain of an American tank platoon who, along with a German sergeant, struggle to keep a small group of American and German tanks in the fight.

Operation Red Metal is a nightmare scenario made real but could it just be the first move on the Russian chessboard?

    Seriously, if I wanted a textbook I would have gone to school. A political Science degree does not make you a writer. Reading this book was more painful than a root canal. Verbose, disjointed, ego driven, insulting.....basically a crock!

    I believe this book to be one of the best action adventure books Ever written. What a well written story line. One needs to take the time to fully grasp this book. Many sub plots and characters. The realism in the action scenes are amazing. I assume there will be a second book and also will await the next gray man ( hopefully February 2020).
  • Highly recommendable
