In this explosive bestseller, the United States and the Soviet Union are poised on the brink of Armageddon. Glasnost has failed, Russia is economically desperate, and Gorbachev’s successor has launched the first strike in what may become World War III. Only one man knows the full extent of the impending horror—a CIA operative trapped in the Kremlin.

Written by a former Marine Corps pilot, DEFCON One is a blistering scenario of men and war—exciting, tense, and frighteningly real.
