On the South China Sea an oil rig erupts in flames--as AK-47 tracer rounds stitch the night and men die in pools of blood. The SOSUS underwater network catapults news of the attack to Washington--while ChiCom troops mass on the Vietnamese border.
Ten divisions of Chinese shock troops blast their way south, overrunning the U.S.-U.N-led Emergency Response Force. But the West's best warriors fight back. U.S. Special Forces, British SAS, and the legendary Gurkhas, their Kukri knives drawn, go toe-to-toe with the invaders. Tomcats and F-18s pulverize the jungle. And the Military Sealift Command hurls Aegis cruisers and Wasp-Iwo Jima, and Spruance-class attack ships--spearheaded by Sea Wolf subs--into the South China Sea.
From Japan to Malaysia, the Pacific Rim is ablaze--in a hell called . . . WORLD WAR III

"Superior to the Tom Clancy genre, with characters that came alive . . .and the military aspect far more realistic."
--The Spectator
Ian Slater, a veteran of the Australian Joint Intelligence Bureau, is the author of the World War III novels. He teaches political science at the University of British Columbia and is managing editor of Pacific Affairs. Slater lives in Vancouver, Canada, with his wife and two children.
