Tense, complex and fast-moving, Manifest Destiny: Fire on the Water is the story of a desperate battle to save a nation. When a cataclysmic Middle East nuclear war deprives the world of a third of its easily-accessible oil, prices pass $400 a barrel as a record-cold winter bears down on the Northern Hemisphere. US President Franklin Zimmer, desperate to avoid civilian panic and economic collapse, orders the invasion of Canada to secure the rich Northern Alberta oil sands for America's exclusive use.
Expecting a quick and easy victory over its northern neighbor's thinly-stretched military, the United States and much of the rest of the world are surprised as tenacious and overmatched Canadian air and naval forces-led by an aging submarine with a troubled past-take a toll on the invading US military.
In Asia and Europe, countries choose sides, with the US flexing its economic muscle and Canada calling in debts from a century of international peacekeeping and foreign aid. The fate of two nations hangs in the balance as the world holds its breath.
