Strike Force (Patrick McLanahan Series #13) by Dale Brown

A new era appears to be dawning in the Middle East. But the free world must be wary of old enemies . . .

Rebel Iranian General Hesarak al-Kan Buzhazi is launching a coup that could destroy Iran’s theocratic regime, and must turn to his old nemesis, U.S. Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, for help. On presidential authority, McLanahan sends a new, top-secret fleet of XR-A9 Black Stallion spaceplanes into the fray. The strike force, capable of virtually instantaneous global reach—led by test pilot and astronaut Captain Hunter Noble—could change the course of history in the Middle East for generations to come.

But the reactivation of America’s first military space station has rekindled fears of a space arms race. And with McLanahan caught in a furious political battle with those secretly working to undermine his military initiative, it falls to Noble and his dedicated space engineers to halt a growing insurgency in Iran that threatens to erupt into a devastating worldwide jihad.

I enjoyed this read. The hero of these stories General Patrick McLanahan has the nation of Iran to deal with. General Hesarak al-Kan Buzhazi is being hunted by the terror soldiers of the Pasadran. He had been arrested by the Pasadran but was freed by old associates from his military days. He makes an urgent plea for help from General McLanahan. They had previously done battle in another Dale Brown book. The President does not want to commit troops to a civil disturbance in Iran. The President does authorize the use of the Black Stallion, a sophisticated space plane that Dreamland is developing. General McLanahan is busy doing battle with the President and members of the cabinet so the battle activity in Iran falls upon Captain Hunter Noble a pilot. In the meantime McLanahan and his forces have to rescue a living Princess,Azar Assiyeh Quagev who is a Iranian Monarch. General Hesarak and his movement against against the theoratic regime in Iran is gaining momentum. General McLanahan and his troops have to handle the looming crisis in Iran. Russian complicity is also shown in this book. This is a very realistic book that you will enjoy reading.

Like the story line and could see the People as they might be like some of our leaders today or in the near future.

Dale Brown has written a good synopsis of future events. It is also a good analysis of the world situation in the Mid East today. Excellent reading!
