Dale Brown is the author of fourteen New York Times bestsellers, and now he soars to new heights with this outstanding, realistic thriller of warfare and global politics.
On America's newest combat base, U.S. Air Force Major General Patrick McLanahan and his crew of daring engineers are devising the air combat unit of the future -- known as Air Battle Force.
After being chased out of Afghanistan, Taliban fighters invade the neighboring oil-rich Republic of Turkmenistan. Now it's up to McLanahan and his team to win a war in which everyone wants them to fail.
Fast. Explosive. Impossible to put down. Air Battle Force is the perfect Dale Brown combination -- spellbinding suspense and cutting-edge military technology.

Major General Patrick McLanahan and General Rebecca Furness join forces with computer-savvy Colonel Daren Mace to command Air Battle Force, a wing of computer-controlled B-1 bombers, called Vampires, and their backup B-52s. All kinds of computer-controlled missiles, ships, and equipment, as well as soldiers fitted out in exo-skeletons called "tin men," join forces to control a runaway group of Taliban fighters attempting to conquer Turkmenistan. Dufris reads every word, every military part, and every action with exacting precision. He changes inflection and phrasing when switching among U.S. soldiers, Taliban and Turkmenistan fighters, and Russians. There's little actual gore and lots of military strategizing and seat-of-your-pants flying, and Dufris's narration never gets in the way of the action. M.B.K.
