About this title


At 06.00 on February 18, 2001, the roar of the engines from twelve Russian-built SU-27s ripped through Vietnamese airspace. Within minutes burning phosphorus, shrapnel, and delayed reaction mines were falling on Vietnam's main naval base. Operation Dragonstrike had begun. The Far Fast was at war. The world was in crisis. Four days later American satellites detected Chinese nuclear missiles being prepared for launch.
This is an authentically and authoritatively constructed account in which the United States, Asia and Europe become dramatically and unavoidably enmeshed in the war. It has the page-turning quality of best-selling fiction, yet the events here make up a real-life scenario which horrifies Western defence planners.
Dragonstrike provides an insider's view of what the coming world crisis may be like. The Dragon will strike. Where, when, and how we don't know, exactly. But it will, and Hawksley and Holberton are convincing and compulsively readable in their predictions.

From the Publisher:

"Ominous and insightful, Dragon Strike is a thinking man's thriller that will glue you to your chair." --Stephen Coonts, bestselling author of Fortunes of War and Cuba

"Humphrey Hawksley is one of only a handful of writers taking the thriller in important new directions." --Craig Thomas, bestselling author of Firefox

"Dragon Strike is a cracking read by two fine journalists who know what they are talking about. Realistic and gripping, it goes to the heart of some of the most worrying issues with which the world will be grappling in the Millennium." --Chris Patten, last Governor of Hong Kong

"Hawksley and Holberton...jam their book with enough technological detail to satisfy even the most compulsive player of fantasy warfare." --Time

"Ingenious...bounces along, with plenty of knowledge of weaponry and tactical strengths." --The Economist

"Graphic and...realistic." --The Financial Times

"An ingenious thriller...chilling." --The Daily Telegraph
