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?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
This smart thriller kept us spellbound. With Russia as the ruthless antagonist, Red Metal plops us right in the middle of World War III, fought not for oil but for the rare-earth minerals vital to so much advanced technology. The story follows multiple international protagonists that each have skin in the game, exposing us to their deeply complicated motives and weaknesses. Intensively researched and closely shadowing current headlines, this novel from Mark Greaney—written with former Marine Corps officer H. Ripley Rawlings—will satisfy even the most exacting fans of modern intelligence and military lore.

Wow..speechless when asked how to review this book. I’ve read everything mark has written and he’s probably my favorite author and red metal blew his other stuff out of the water. Amazing, easily in the top 5 best books I’ve ever read and I read 177 books last year. Bravo gentlemen
If you like the nitty gritty details like a Tom Clancy book, you’ll love this.
Can’t wait for the sequel. China and Taiwan.
