On America's newest combat base, U.S. Air Force aerial warfare expert Major General Patrick McLanahan and his crew of daring engineers are devising the air combat unit of the future. Known as Air Battle Force, it can launch concentrated, stealthy, precision-guided firepower to any spot on the globe within hours. And soon McLanahan and his warriors will have their first target.

Chased out of Afghanistan, Taliban fighters are planning to invade the neighboring oil-rich Republic of Turkmenistan, an isolated and wealthy central Asian state. As alliances form and forces collide, the impending battle for control of the world's largest oil deposits threatens to tear apart the tenuous peace created by America's victories in Afghanistan. It's up to McLanahan and a handful of American commandos half a world away, aided by an untested and unproven force of robotic warplanes, to win a war in which everyone, even friendly forces at home, wants them to fail.

    " So so story. A little too futuristic and a bit over consumed with the Air Force. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gary Barrentine | 9/30/2013

    " A lot of technical facts over character. "

    " Another excellent Dale Brown book. Very forward thinking in his military strategy based upon remarkable technology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 8/31/2012

    " Usual stuff, world political breakdown, Taliban, Russia overlords, insubordination in the US Army and high tech. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Doug | 4/22/2012

    " Wow, this guy is good. Here is another terrific story with great detail, good science, a hint of lust, and some super awesome air battles in Patrick McLanahan's exciting life. One character finds his story underdeveloped a bit, but it doesn't matter. Dudes: read this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clyn | 3/2/2012

    " Another solid performance by Brown in this book. One of the first, though with a clear lead in to the next book. I've really enjoyed this series, and find that Brown seems to know how much detail about technologic systems and flight minutia to include, and better, how much to leave out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles | 6/2/2011

    " Another fine book in the Mclanahan series. I like the progression that the main characters have taken throughout the series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ed Kovacs | 5/4/2011

    " Good, fun, escapist, riveting futuristic action with crusty old warhorse Patrick McLanahan. More than a dozen novels in this series, and Brown keeps churning out the fun. "

    " A futuristic "War In The Middle East" tale featuring a special U.S. Air
    Force group. Mediocre story line with redundant dialogue. Not very
    good.
