Author David Alexander brings his shock-and-awe writing style to the pages of this no-holds-barred action thriller. The War Pigs of the book's title are an elite special forces unit whose job is to accomplish missions too dangerous and too impossible for other commando fighters to handle.

Using realistic narrative and a bold storytelling style that flexes its considerable muscle as it barrels along at breakneck speed, War Pigs tells the story of theater warfare in a battlefield that might be one of the next future flashpoints of global conflict.

Here, the US military and its strategic partners become embroiled in brutal fighting when ethnic rivalries, coupled with the presence of reserves of strategic natural resources, erupt into full-scale warfare that draws in the United States and threatens to engulf the entire region.

In a tactical scenario that has become the bane of Pentagon warplanners throughout US involvement in regional theaters of war, powerful warlords in control of military forces have spread havoc throughout the region as their armies have fought each other and terrorized local populations with little or no control.

Yet it's into this chaotic cauldron of war that America's elite super-infantry force has been ordered to proceed where others have tried and failed. This time the Pentagon's Joint Special Operations Command wants to see results instead of high casualty figures. And to get results it has ordered in a fighting force known to rush into the heat of action where angels fear to tread.

The thriller gets down and dirty with the gritty realities of combat right from the git-go and the pace never slackens for a moment. It's clear from the outset that the men of this fighting unit will live or die by virtue of their own combat savvy, true grit and grim determination. If they survive to fight again, it will be because they've prevailed over enemy forces that are every bit as capable and every iota as determined to win as they themselves are.

The War Pigs have been tasked to combat their opposite numbers on the enemy's home territory and centers of military power. They'll have to eat mucho mud, and dodge mucho bullets. They're foul-mouthed and they're crude, but they know one thing, and that's how to say "mission accomplished" at the end of the battle.

War Pigs.

For any other unit the name might be a slur. For these guys, it's a badge of honor.
