Overview

At the center of Harold Coyle's brilliant new novel is the dramatic court-martial of a courageous young woman combat officer, forced to choose - on the battlefield - between an action that will save her troops and the senseless order of an arrogant and frightened general. In Code of Honor, Harold Coyle - himself a former career Army officer - whose fast-paced novels of military action have made him a New York Times bestselling author, confronts the most sacred traditions of the Army's command structure to show what happens when one person - in this case a woman, in what was until recently a man's world - bucks the system. Captain Nancy Kozak's story is set against the decision to send U. S. troops to Colombia as "peacekeeping" force to prevent anarchy, a decision that leads to a vicious full-scale war in which the American forces, at first out-fought, battle desperately for survival - a scenario with disturbing echoes of the current controversies about putting U. S. forces into foreign countries.... Coyle's cast of characters - familiar to readers of his previous books - includes not only Captain Kozak, but Brigadier General Scott Dixon and Lt. Colonel Harold Cerro - all of them plunged into a burgeoning guerrilla war in which the mistakes of Vietnam are about to be starkly repeated, over the objections of the officers on the spot. Pitted against each other are a number of antagonists as badly matched as any in the history of warfare - the pompous martinet commander of U. S. forces in Colombia, Major General C. B. Lane, whose MacArthur pose hides fear and incompetence, and Hector Valendez, the brilliantly gifted leader of the FARC, the Colombian left-wing guerrillas who are in the process of transforming themselves, under Valendez's leadership, into a real army that will frighten the pants off Lane and fight him to a standstill, as well as officers, soldiers, civilians and politicians on both sides, caught up in the tragic reality of war. As always, Harold Coyl

In the electrifying new novel by the author of The Ten Thousand, the decision to send U.S. troops to Columbia as a peacekeeping force leads to full-scale war--and sets up the perfect scenario for disaster. Featuring General Scott Dixon and Captain Nancy Kozak, Code of Honor takes readers to an all-new level of battlefield realism and excitement.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the near future of Coyle's latest techno-thriller, the U.S. has dispatched its (fictional) 11th Air Assault Division to aid Colombia's unstable government in suppressing a Marxist insurgency and, while it's there, to try and damage the region's booming drug trade as well. By the time Brigadier-General Scott Dixon, familiar to readers of The Ten Thousand and Bright Star , arrives to evaluate the mission one year later, he finds the insurgency growing ever more formidable and the 11th Air crippled by the incompetence of its commander, Major General Charles Lane. The crisis peaks when infantry Captain Nancy Kozak overrides Lane's micromanagement of a firefight and insults him over the radio. Lane demands that she face a court-martial; Dixon is caught between allegiance to the truth and the need to support the chain of command. Coyle's cold-eyed portrayal of an American battalion demoralized by repeated ambushes offers a welcome corrective to post-Desert Storm triumphalism, but his storyline essentially recycles Vietnam War issues and avoids such end-of-the-century concerns as the use of U.S. forces in peacekeeping and nation-building.

Library Journal
In best-selling author Coyle's latest military thriller, U.S. troops are sent to quell civil war in Colombia, where Capt. Nancy Kozak gets court-martialed.
From the Publisher

Read an Excerpt

Harold Coyle, New York Times bestselling author of Against All Enemies, Trial by Fire, and Bright Star, is America's acclaimed master of the war novel. In Code Of Honor, Coyle delivers battlefield realism and excitement in a story that echoes the complex U.S. military mission in today's world....

A corrupt and fractured government in Bogotá, Colombia, requests a small expeditionary force of U.S. troops to combat drug lords and a growing insurgency. It's a scenario for disaster: an unstable country...an elusive enemy...a political and military minefield. The 11th Air Assault Division is called on to act as a police force, even when Brigadier General Scott Dixon reports back from a fact-finding mission that it's a war America can't win. But for a paper-pushing U.S. Major General in Bogotá, no initiative is too risky to safeguard his career. Then Captain Nancy Kozak -- under assault in the field, but determined to avert defeat and protect the soldiers in her command -- dares to defy him. With careers hanging in the balance, Kozak is struggling to survive an explosive clash that pits resolve against prejudice, and honor against ambition....
