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

The Battle For Control Of Iran . . . Begins In Space

When a disgraced former Iranian military chief of staff engineers an insurgency that threatens to destroy the theocratic regime in Iran, a new era appears to be dawning in the Middle East. But one must be wary of old enemies . . .

On the run from the Pasdaran, the theocrat's terror army, and unable to count on support from his friends in the regular army, Iranian rebel leader General Hesarak al-Kan Buzhazi desperately turns to his old nemesis, U.S. Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan, for help. Unwilling to commit American forces in an Iranian civil war, and with time running out, the U.S. president authorizes McLanahan to utilize a new, top-secret fleet of globe-crossing spaceplanes, the XR-A9 Black Stallions, led by test pilot and astronaut Captain Hunter Noble. Within hours, McLanahan's Air Battle Force turns the tide, possibly changing the course of history in the Middle East for generations.

The advent of almost instantaneous global reach, along with the reactivation of America's first military space station, Silver Tower, has rekindled fears of a space arms race, and the growing insurgency in Iran is threatening to erupt into a worldwide jihad. But McLanahan finds himself embroiled in even more bitter battles at the White House, between those who support his space-based military initiative and those who are working secretly to undermine it. When McLanahan is forced to concentrate on his political and personal battles back at home, it's left to Hunter Noble and his team of young American space engineers to keep the fires of freedom in the Middle East from exploding completely out of control.

Filled with the latest cutting-edge weaponry, geopolitical intrigue, high-flying suspense, and a colorful cast of characters, Strike Force is New York Times bestselling master Dale Brown at his best.

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.

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!
