Publisher 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?

A10 no burner.

Pretty good, very detailed , but a few loose ends left hanging. Oh, and the warthog has no afterburner :-)

Not up to Greaney standards

Pretty poor offering from MG though I suspect he just lent his name to the book. For too much use of nomenclature for the military equipment — who cares the name of the engine in a Russian armored vehicle and how much horsepower? Continual use of nomenclature totally unnecessary and distracting. Author discusses use of F-35 and F/A-18 operating from the amphibious ship USS Boxer — inaccurate. While F-35 can operate from Boxer, the F/A-18 cannot. It needs a catapult and arresting gear to fly on/off Boxer. Boxer is not configured with either catapults or arresting gear.

One year plan ,

Great read.

There’s a lot of things going on and Greary does a great job of keeping it all tied together.
