When Indonesia launches a successful invasion of Australia, all hell breaks out. Millions of civilians are killed within the first weeks, hundreds of thousands are captured and held in concentration camps. The Australian Defence Force are decimated as a cohesive fighting force. Yet hope remains. Thousands of Australians rail against the invaders, many under the tutor ledge of Australian soldiers, separated from their units.
The invasion won't be as easy as the Indonesians thought.
This omnibus edition includes the first three stories in the captivating thriller series readers describe as "a cross between Andy McNab, Tom Clancy and Matthew Reilly." If you like breakneck pacing and nonstop action, then you'll love Keith McArdle's bestselling series.

The Unforeseen Series Book #1
1.5 stars (only because it's Australian)
Australian who joined the Army aged seventeen, and published short stories in service magazines and newspapers. Writes “manly adventure stories" (!)
Australia gets invaded by Indonesia. Defence forces are overwhelmed rapidly. Mass slaughter. Prodigious raping and pillaging. Concentration camps spring up. Airport security guard interred under circumstances considerably less amenable than contemporary immigration detention and escapes. Mild mannered IT guy wouldn't hurt a fly normally, but does so in defence daughter and granddaughter. Surviving soldiers fight a guerrilla campaign. Special Forces guys trade one-liners amid the carnage and devastation
Breakneck pace. Paper thin plot high on emotion. Character development imperceptible. Prepares the ground for sequels, which I was not tempted to pursue.
The 1984 movie ‘Red Dawn’ (Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen Jennifer Grey etc.) rehashed in Oz, minus Russians, plus Indonesians. There was a truly appalling 2012 Hollywood remake of 'Red Dawn' where North Korea invades the US. I'm sure Chris Hemsworth now wishes he’d declined that role.
