Red Sands

(The sixth book in the Winds of War series)
A novel by

RED SANDS is the story of Strike Team 3, a combined arms unit consisting of mechanized infantry Strykers, and Tanks. Natanz is a hardened Fuel Enrichment Plant, covering 62 square miles located 26 feet underground and protected by a concrete wall that’s 8 feet thick.

And on top of that, the Americans will have to overcome a mechanized security force at third larger than their force.

In February of 2003 General Mohamed ElBaradei visited the site and reported that 160 centrifuges were complete and ready for operation with 1,000 more under construction. The site has been cloaked in total secrecy since then. In order for Major Sean Finn and his troops to accomplish their mission, they’ll have to cope with the self-absorbed Saudi Prince attached to the unit for political reasons, a company of Russian tanks that’s rolling south from the Caspian Sea, a battalion of Iranian special forces troops sent to kill them, and the Kavir desert--which is very hostile.

“It is,” in the words of the New York Times reporter embedded with Strike Team 3, “the definition of a suicide mission.”
