In this exciting, visionary, and all-too-plausible next chapter in the legendary Dale Brown’s New York Times bestselling techno-warfare series, Brad McLanahan and the Iron Wolf Squadron must fight the Russians on a dangerous, untested battlefield: outer space.
The previous administration’s ineffective response to the growing Russian threat has left America vulnerable. Setting a bold course for America’s defense, the decisive and strong new president, John Dalton Farrell, intends to challenge Russian aggression head on. Brad and Patrick McLanahan and the formidable Iron Wolf Squadron—including the recently injured Nadia Rozek, rested and back to fighting form thanks to a pair of state-of-the-art prosthetic legs—are ready and eager to join the battle.
But even with their combined forces, the Russian menace may prove too great for the Americans to overcome. Done with provocative skirmishes and playing for small stakes, the Russian president has set his sights on the ultimate prize: controlling the entire world. Expanding beyond earth’s bounds, the Russians have built a new high-tech space station and armed it with weaponry capable of destroying US satellites as well as powerful missiles pointed at strategic targets across earth.
Devising a cunning plan of attack, Brad, Nadia, and the Iron Wolf warriors will take to the skies in their advanced space planes to destroy the space station, check the Russians’ plan for dominance, and save the world. But is it already too late?
Outer space becomes the battleground in bestseller Brown's thrilling follow-up to 2018's The Moscow Offensive. In the near future, the Russians, led by their unstable president, Gennadiy Gryzlov, have developed advanced aerospace weapons as part of their Mars Project that, when deployed on a new high-tech space station, will dominate not only space but the world. Having fallen behind the Russians, the Americans are desperately trying to build their own resources by resurrecting weapons that began life under Ronald Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative program. Only the skill and valor of pilots like Maj. Nadia Rozek and Capt. Brad McLanahan of the Iron Wolf Squadron can possibly offset the Russians' technological edge. As usual in this long-running series, the combat scenes stand out, though readers should be prepared for characters straight from central casting. Brown reinforces his position at the top of the military action genre.
