In the aftermath of a series of student riots in Seoul, the U.S. Congress rushes a bill into law calling for the complete withdrawal of American troops from South Korea. This sets off a chain reaction: North Korea attacks across the DMZ, Russia supports North Korea, the Chinese remain neutral, and the United States fights again alongside its South Korean allies. The full range of ground, air, and naval forces take part in vicious combat, first to hold off the North Korean onslaught, then drive them back.

``Tom Clancy's collaborator on Red Storm Rising here makes his first--and impressive--independent contribution to the techno-thriller,'' wrote PW . Bond establishes a credible scenario of a North Korean invasion of the South, although the novel's individual episodes are more suspenseful than the course of the war as a whole.

Not worth the time or investment.
A page turner with terrific research to back it up. Exciting from front to back!
From start to finish, this book was almost impossible to put down. The dialogue, the mixture of plots, the characters, and the action are almost unparalleled in military fiction. This is my first ever 5 star rating; that’s how good I found the book to be.
