It's brother against brother, citizen against citizen, soldier against soldierin a war for the soul of America
All across the nation, well-equipped militias are training for war. They know the hated Federals will be attacking, hell-bent on taking away their guns and their freedom. On the other side, the government knows the militias will be ready to fight to the death for their independence, their land, and their family values. At the next Ruby Ridge, both sides are bringing an army.
Leading the federal forces is General Douglas Freeman, the hard-nosed, flamboyant soldier who commanded American forces during WW III. When war breaks out, Freeman's B-52s bomb militia positions in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. Militia and government forces square off in a massive tank battle in the Alvord Desert of southeastern Oregon. The oil fields of Bakersfield, key railroad links in Wyoming, and Fort Bragg, North Carolina, are all targets of militia sabotage. Freeman launches the 82nd Airborne in a headlong attack on militia forces gathered near Mount St. Helens. At the mouth of the Columbia River on the Washington-Oregon Border, the two armies fight a climactic battle for the four-mile-long Astoria bridge.
SHOWDOWN is the heart-pounding scenario of a war that could be coming . . . a war in which both sides possess the most advanced and terrifying weapons in the history of combat. . . .

Very very exciting book. Keeps awake and ready with all the twists and turns. Makes you wonder what really is going on out west. Good book overall, but Slater tried putting to many characters in to many non-important roles!!!
This book is a must read. I am a veteran and know what this author is talking about. This book is so well writen that with every turn of the page I got more goosebumps. This book is a must read!
A very enjoyable book but not done with much research into the actual miltia movement and other seperatists that currently exist. Slater relies on media stereotypes of race-motivated nazis with a fairly shallow belief system. He also completely ignores the huge Aztlan movement in the SW of the US. Could have been better researched making it more believable.
it has great suspense and can show us what may happen in our world.
