Overview

Set in South Africa of the early 1990s, this military thriller has fascist ultraconservative Afrikaners staging a coup and taking over the Pretoria government. The new government then re-institutes apartheid and invades bordering Namibia. A Communist counterforce led by the Cubans is mounted, as internal revolt and harsh suppression breed domestic chaos. A Boer nuclear attack on the Cubans is answered by nerve gas from the Cubans. A daring raid by US Rangers destroys the Afrikaner weapons before they can be used again, while U.S. and British ground forces restore order after much fighting and destruction.

In Vortex, Larry Bond tells us a story involving South Africa and the World. The plot is gripping and suspenseful from beginning to end. The characters are complex and believable. There are many plot twists, and surprises, as well as detailed military, politcal, economic and social senarios and descriptions. This book is great! Red Phoenix is a very good book (also by Larry Bond), but Vortex is even better!! Don't miss reading this one.

Con ayuda de la URSS, Cuba contrataca desde varios frentes. Las fuerzas enfrentadas utilizan sus arsenales de destruccion masiva: bombas nucleares y gas nervioso. Una fuerza anfibia anglonorteamericana desembarca en Sudafrica. Boers, anglosajones, cubanos y nativos se enfrentan a lo ancho y largo del pais.
