The Med

(1988)
(The first book in the Dan Lenson series)
A novel by

 
 
A powerful and fast-moving tale of the Navy-Marine Corps team in action, on a dangerous mission in the volatile Eastern Mediterranean.

Cloaked by the mists of dawn, Task Force 61--carrying tanks, aircraft, and over 5000 Marines--steams toward Syria with deadly intent. Their mission: rescue 100 hostages from a terrorist stronghold--alive.

With realism seldom seen in military fiction, The Med is a magnificent and timely epic that brings the human drama of armed conflict compellingly to life. Driven by believable, flesh-and-blood characters, it is a painstakingly detailed portrait of amphibious warfare as only David Poyer can paint it. The Med is today's most explosive tale of international crisis, personal valor, and emotional struggle--a disturbingly plausible novel that crackles with non-stop action.
