The Next War - Book 3
When the petty squabble over the Diaoyutai/Senkaku Islands escalates, China moves to reclaim its long lost province of Taiwan,
and the East Wind blows, hard and cruel. Hundreds of Dong Feng ballistic missiles pummel Taiwan, as the Chinese Navy deploys to engage its wayward son and clear the way for a big
amphibious operation. Rushing to the scene from its forward base at Yokosuka, US Carrier Strike Group Carl Vinson moves to challenge the Dragon and reassert Pax Americana, which has ruled
the Pacific for 80 years.
Meanwhile, the Persian Gulf erupts when Iran poses a major threat to vital oil production
facilities and all the US has ready to stand that watch is the “Gator Navy” of the USMC. Action spills into the Gulf of Oman and Indian Ocean, even as the war careens towards
a major confrontation in the Pacific. Now Russia’s newest Admiral, Vladimir Karpov, prepares to join the battle with a heavily reinforced Russian Pacific Fleet.
