Overview

Joint Task Force: Liberia by David E. Meadows

A coalition of African nationalists and Muslim extremists have decided the time has come to wipe American influences clean from the face of Africa. Their first target: an enclave of African-American expatriots living in Liberia. It is not only a blood bath—it is an international crisis which demands an immediate U.S. response. Enter Amphibious Group Two, a special joint task force of Naval and Marine components led by Rear Admiral Dick Holman. Their job is simple: liberate the trapped families in Liberia. But in today’s explosive political climate, with ever-shifting alliances and dangerous hidden agendas, nothing is ever that simple. . . . 
 
“Not only does the author know his subject but [his] fiction could readily become fact.”—John Tegler, host of the syndicated television show, Capital Conversation.

I'm sorry I wasted my money on this. The writer has no sense of how to describe action in current terms. I waited for it to get better but nope, didn't happen.

David E. Meadows has outdone himself with the introduction of the new series - Joint Task Force. He is an outstanding writer who has the ability to dramatically present todays battlefield with realism and accuracy. A must read novel.

It's been too long since the pantheon of good military fiction writers had a new member. But it was worth the wait. David Meadows has an ear for dialogue and a taste for action that should make Tom Clancy nervous. He's been there and done that, he's not a wannabe. He's vaulted onto the top rung with this book. His earlier books were a good read, but he's moved to the 'bigs' with this one. Best of all, the spooks are there in the background and leading the pack. Just like in real life. (c'mon, gotta love 'beaucoup' the radio ranger...) Igor is in the house, save your pennies for the next installation in January. I'm ordering mine today.
