This book was fantastic. It takes a 100 pages or so to really develop the plot and get in tune with the main characters. But once completed the story hits you like a ton of bricks. Without giving a lot away, the story centers around religious fanaticism and how fighting a war in the name of God, Allah, etc. can very easily change the world we live in forever. Two of the worlds largest religions, Christianity and Islam are in an all our war after nuclear bombs are detonated in two major US cities. High ranking officials with significant influence are determined to purge their adversaries religion and their people from the world forever. The collapse of the United States Military and it's Constitution are at stake, as US politician's now look to God for advise on how to win the war and run the country. The reality of the concepts presented in this book are scary to say the least. There are scenes that upset me so much I found myself yelling at the pages, saying, "no, please do not let this happen to my country and its military." Given the United States current enemies the concepts the authors present are not as far fetched as we may think. This is a book that will stay with the reader well after the last page is finished.

I have always liked books by Ralph Peters. I was looking forward to this book to be on the same level as Harold Coyle or Tom Clancy. A book where you stay up late at night reading because you had to know what was going to happen next. Instead I thought it was a difficult read. I didn't care what would happen next and actually had to force myself to read it. I did not like the story at all and it had nothing to do with the political or religious beliefs portrayed. Throughout the story I kept expecting more. The story would hint at something interesting and you were looking forward to further explaination and you never heard about it again.

    Tom Clancy meets L. Ron Hubbard

    Ralph Peters description of a future "crusade" in the Holy Land by a U.S. military force (divided into two corps - one of regular Army and Marines and another corps made up of an over-the-top depiction of a fundamental Christian force) is pure keyhole fantasy. Mr. Peters goes into infinite detail on Army and Marine combat operations and tactics while ignoring a much broader scale his story and characters requires to be set in order for his plot to have legs. While looking through this "keyhole" we come away with the impression that Mr. Peters has more interest in squad/battalion level tactics from an Army/Marine "grunt" perspective - albeit while he seemingly takes much pleasure in taking pot-shots at the Air Force. One premise that escapes me is how it could even be possible that at any point in the future (near or far) Arabs could put in the field any semblance of a modern military force - or even use/maintain Chinese provided technology that levels the battlefield (I suppose this is why the Air Force had to be held back by a conservative Christian conspiracy). One thermonuclear device over Mecca/Medina would have shattered Mr. Peters keyhole fantasy plot - the fact that such a logical response (to a nuclear attack on our cities by Islamic state sponsored terrorists) is missing from this book is evident that this book is merely a fantasy that doesn't have legs. Kind of like Tom Clancy meets L. Rod Hubbard
