About this book

Book Summary

Shocking scenes of battle…unforgettable soldiers…heartbreaking betrayals….  In this stunning, fast-paced novel, a ruthless future war unfolds in a 21st century nightmare: Los Angeles is a radioactive ruin; Europe lies bleeding; and Israel has been destroyed…with millions slaughtered.  A furious America fights to reclaim the devastated Holy Land.

The Marines storm ashore; the U.S. Army does battle in a Biblical landscape.  Hi-tech weaponry is useless and primitive hatreds flare.  Lt. Gen. Gary “Flintlock” Harris and his courageous warriors struggle for America’s survival--with ruthless enemies to their front and treachery at their rear.  Islamist fanatics, crusading Christians, and unscrupulous politicians open the door to genocide.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. Compelling characters, thrilling small-unit battle scenes and the terrifying possibility that it could all come true make this a must read." - Publishers Weekly

"A thrilling multilayered masterpiece of mayhem. While most writers use only their imagination to tell tales of the worst war imaginable, Ralph Peters also taps his background as a top intel officer to spin a terrific tale. His insight into the world of secret operations -- and the what-if horrors our military must consider daily -- makes this page-turner a must-read." - W.E.B. Griffin

"The thinking man’s Tom Clancy" - Wall Street Journal

"Peters' battle scenes are masterpieces of perspective…it is hard to imagine a better portrayal of modern war." - Newsweek
