Reading Ralph Peters' dark new novel, The War After Armageddon, is, in a way, much like driving by a grisly traffic accident - the view is horrific, but you just can't look away. Peters' novel is, indeed, compellingly horrific, the plot driven along by a realism that only a writer with this author's background, experience and vision can achieve and pass along to the reader in a dramatic narrative. Peters, today's most insightful strategist when observing in print or in his many TV appearances as guest commentator what is really taking place in the dangerous world around us, has the rare ability to think through and vividly imagine the second-, third-, and even fourth-order effects of policy decisions today's world leaders are making. The hellish world vision that Peters' describes in The War After Armageddon may on the surface seem far-fetched; yet, he's skillfully applied his superb insight as a strategist, experienced intelligence officer, and veteran world traveler to show us what might happen in a world where mankind's oldest motivators - faith and blood - have succeeded in trumping reason and good will.

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.
