Described as “the military counterpart of Orwell’s 1984, The War on 2020 is the breathtaking novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Red Army, Ralph Peters.

Soviet Central Asia, 2020.

A decaying Soviet Union is on the brink of disaster. Their only hope is American’s seventh cavalry. They’re plunging into the horrors of war in the new millennium.

The Soviet Army is barley holding on to its last line of defenses, devastated by the Islamic and Soviet rebel forces supplied by the Japanese. Reeling from a deadly worldwide plague and defeat in Africa, the U.S. sends legendary Colonel George Tylor, commanding he Seventh Cavalry, in a last-ditch effort the save the Soviets. Undetected by Japanese spy satellites, the squadrons race to strike a fatal blow with an untried weapon that is the last, best hope in the U.S. arsenal. In this battle fought by electronics and lasers, where the killers never lock eyes, the Americans succeed overwhelmingly. But then the Japanese strike back, with a weapon of horrible, unimagined power...

About the Author:

Ralph Peters is a retired Army lieutenant colonel and former enlisted man, a controversial strategist and veteran of the intelligence world; a bestselling, prize-winning novelist; a journalist who has covered multiple conflicts and appears frequently in the broadcast media; and a lifelong traveler with experience in over seventy countries on six continents. A widely read columnist, Ralph Peters’s journalism has appeared in dozens of newspapers, magazines, and web-zines, including the New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, USA TODAY, The Washington Post, Newsweek, Harper’s Magazine, and Armchair General Magazine. His books include The Officers’ Club, The War After Armageddon, Endless War, and Red Army. Peters grew up in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania, and studied writing at Pennsylvania State University. He lives and writes in the Washington, DC, area.

From Library Journal:

Peters's latest futuristic war novel (after Red Army, LJ 4/1/89) eerily has some of the same circumstances and certainly some similar "characters" as the war in the Persian Gulf, even though it is fiction. The war in this novel is being fought by an Islamic-Japanese axis, which has attacked a post-Gorbachev Soviet Union weakened by a devastating civil war. Enter the Americans on the side of the Soviets; enter, too, the larger-than-life heroic figure of Colonel George Taylor, who commands a computerized aerial strike force called the U.S. 7th Cavalry. It should be noted that by 2020 the "final" Mideast War has been fought and surviving Israelis have been resettled in "homelands located in the least promising area of the Far West." Peters, an Army intelligence officer, writes believably of high-tech warfare, but the fighters are real people. Recommended. Military Book Club main selection; Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club alternates.
