I was surprised and very pleased by this book. The authors present a scenario that is very plausible, and seems closer to reality every day in our current world situation. The story is told in a convincing manner, with suspense and surprises in almost every Chapter. The authors exhibit a convincing command of the technology involved in military conflicts of this nature, from the detailed accounts of the tank battles to those in the air. Furthermore, they present thoroughly believable strategies that might be employed by the opposing forces in exploiting that technology. The story line develops cleanly along a straight-forward path, similar to Tom Clancy¿s early books, without unnecessary depth or detail. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable read.Was this review helpful?

If you like Tom Clancy, you'll really like this book! Chuck DeVore has done an excellent job in taking us where most "politically correct" authors would never dare to go. Chuck can do this because of his extensive knowledge of the real-world political & military situation in Mainland China. This book is exciting from start to finish.Was this review helpful?

China Attacks is a rousing good read that ranks up there as one of the best techno-thrillers ever written. Its scenario is so plausible it could serve as a war plan for China to attack Taiwan, and in all probability succeed given how thinly our forces are deployed worldwide. What makes the plot so credible is the weaving of North Korea, Iran, and the Panama Canal into the plot. The authors, Devore and Mosher, do a wonderful job of seamlessly developing both the scenario and characters. As the story unfolds, the characters and plot mature and increasingly become more believable. No small task given the two cultures and world scope portrayed. As a former Army officer and combat veteran, I can say with authority the battle scenes are accurate in their portrayal of heart stopping fear, fast action, and the accompanying fog of war (one never really knows what¿s going on). The war is so well described that my pulse would actually begin to race.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Chuck DeVore and Steven Mosher have created a contemporary geopolitical thriller in the best traditions of Tom Clancy, Harold Coyle and Dale Brown. The scenario for this fast paced, highly credible and well-researched novel is built on the looting of our nuclear weapons and missile guidance secrets by the Communist Government of China. It unveils the inroads made by the Chinese in influencing the U.S. political process through their well-funded lobbying efforts throughout the last decade. The presidential administration from 1992 through 2000 has placed our country at great risk and China Attacks tells us how bad it could get for a politically correct United States in the new millennium. Authenticity and excitement tie this great book together. We will hear more from these fine new authors. As a retired senior military officer, I find this book to be very thought provoking and sobering.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The book starts off slow but picks up once the war starts. The characters are not fully developed but its readable. The technical details are explained but not in the boring Clancy fashion. Some editorial errors should have been caught by the publisher but they are easily overlooked. I look forward to other books by the author.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This novel has US Marines in East Timor on a UN mission and Iraq threatening to attack in the Middle East -- both real life headlines that, in the book, are instigated by the Chinese to distract America from the assault China intends to make on Taiwan. I found the book well researched, exciting to read, and ultimately, terrifying. The characters were believable and the techonological and historical discriptions, while accurate, weren't burdensome to the pace. I learned alot and enjoyed the read -- well done!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
