America’s most advanced miltary unit rebels against the very government it’s trying to protect in this pulse-pounding military thriller chock-full of suspense, adventure, and high-tech weaponry.

Following their success in crushing an Iranian threat, General Patrick McLanahan’s new “Aerospace Battle Force” has grown into a full-fledged task force, based on the Armstrong Space Station. But the program has its critics, including Russia, the United Nations, and the American press. Newly elected, President Joseph Gardner directs congress to cut off funding for this provocative force and dismisses McLanahan. What no one knows is that the Russians have blackmailed Gardner—the first step in a nefarious plan to control the world’s oil supplies .

With the ABF decommissioned, Russia deploys troops and warships into Turkmenistan, Iran, and the Persian Gulf. But McLanahan and his forces refuse to allow the Russian aggression to stand. Defying the civilian chain of command he orders the ABF to strike their forces. 

The president orders McLanahan’s immediate arrest. But before authorities can throw him in jail, they have to find him. Located at one of the most secure bases, with an arsenal of the world’s most sophisticated air weapons, he has control of the Aerospace Battle Force and the Armstrong Space Station. Army, Marine Corps, and FBI units converge on the base, but they are easily held off—for now. In a race against time, McLanahan must outmaneuver his own countrymen, and defeat the Russians, and expose the truth . . .

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 12/24/2013

    " Interesting read, I was not impressed wiht the story, so many characters, so much detail that it became difficult to read without having to re-read previous parts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thomas | 12/1/2013

    " While Dale Brown is not the greatest storyteller of all time, particularly regarding sometimes predictable plot twists, I have not read a book of his that I did not enjoy. Shadow Command is no exception. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 2/12/2013

    " This book may be of interest if you are a fan of the author or series but the book failed to capture my interest. Too much techno-babble with not enough plot lead to a disappointing read. I enjoy a good techno-thriller as much as the next reader but give me more plot please. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stephen | 11/25/2012

    " I have read every Dale Brown book he has written (although not many of the co-authored books). This book was ok and Brown fans will probably enjoy it. Not a book to start with if you haven't read previous books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 4/29/2012

    " Another protagonist defending the world against the evil powers that threaten us. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 3/13/2012

    " McLanahan is now a General and fighting liberal beauracrats as well as "kill America" bad peeps. Standard fare, fun, escapist. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tim | 3/12/2012

    " Yuk. Could be the beginning of the end for Dale Brown with this clinker. He spends too much time writing about devious Russians, spineless U.S. presidents, weak servicemen with descriptions of parts and procedures of all gadgets instead of interesting story lines. 2 of 10 for this stinker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelique | 11/27/2011

    " For those who like futuristic military macho books, you will probably enjoy this. A little to surreal for my tastes even if I considered this science fiction and yet somehow I had to finish to see how they would resolve this. "

    " A good read not he best but still good "

    " Meek ending for a good story. I'll still read the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chuck | 5/24/2011

    " Currently working on this one. Author is really good on latest military technology. Makes for a good read. "

    " Rogue General who saves the day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Skip | 10/12/2010

    " Best global conflict, high tech writer, but the plot here is not remotely credible as Patrick McLanahan defies a weak, ineffectual President and takes unilateral action against numerous combatants. "
