The destruction of a Russian air base by robotic U.S. warplanes has reawakenedthe bear -- and America must pay a terrible price. In retaliation, Russia's leader launches the most devastating military sneak attack since Pearl Harbor, decimating America's strategic air forces. Now an embattled U.S. president must choose between two horrific scenarios: a cease-fire on the enemy's terms ... or respond with every weapon in the nation's arsenal, possibly triggering global thermonuclear war.
Disgraced and demoted to a desk job, aerial warfare expert Brigadier General Patrick McLanahan saw the nightmare coming -- and only he can stop the relentless Russian war machine. But the fight for the future must take place in the blazing skies, a battlefield off-limits to the discredited former commander of Air Battle Force ... unless McLanahan takes matters into his own hands.

Dale Brown is the author of numerous New York Times bestsellers, starting with Flight of the Old Dog in 1987, and most recently Tiger's Claw. A former U.S. Air Force captain, he can often be found flying his own plane over the skies of Nevada.From AudioFile:
Dale Brown, a former pilot and now master of the techno-terrorism thriller, presents a new and frightening scenario. After a sneak attack on America that devastates all its strategic air forces, the nation has the choice to engage in a retaliatory global thermonuclear war or totally surrender on Russia's terms. William Dufris, a master at narration, skillfully makes this unthinkable threat plausible by creating unique voices for the gleefully energized 19-year-old reconnaissance technician; the determined Major McLanahan, stripped of his rank because of brilliant but unauthorized military action; and the relentlessly vengeful Russian President Gryzlov. Dufris's somber sincerity makes both the plot and the staggering array of advanced weaponry chillingly believable. K.A.T. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
