THUNDER ON THE RIM
On the South China Sea an oil rig erupts in flames-as AK-47 tracer rounds stitch the night and men die in pools of blood. The SOSUS underwater network catapults news of the attack to Washington-while ChiCom troops mass on the Vietnamese border.
Ten divisions of Chinese shock troops blast their way south, overrunning the U.S.-U.N-led Emergency Response Force. But the West's best warriors fight back. U.S. Special Forces, British SAS, and the legendary Gurkhas, their Kukri knives drawn, go toe-to-toe with the invaders. Tomcats and F-18s pulverize the jungle. And the Military Sealift Command hurls Aegis cruisers and Wasp-Iwo Jima, and Spruance-class attack ships-spearheaded by Sea Wolf subs-into the South China Sea.
From Japan to Malaysia, the Pacific Rim is ablaze-in a hell called . . . WORLD WAR III

"Superior to the Tom Clancy genre, with characters that came alive . . .and the military aspect far more realistic."
-The Spectator
