O picked this book up thinking it was sci fi In fact it's written by a former RAF officer in 1999 attempting to forecast the first decade of the 21st century and boy said he get it wrong One can forgive him for not seeing the events of 911 but he should have known about al aeda They have not been mentioned so far However by 2004 which is as far as I have got he has had the USA in a war with North Korea which the USA wins with a reunification of the two Koreas a major revolution in Saudi Arabia the Russians having a second revolution backed by the army Morocco becoming an Islamic theocracy albeit with the King remaining and an army led revolution in China due to chaos caused by a breakdown in the economy I thought I would give the book a go but it's really not worth the time as he has got everything so wrong It's perhaps unfair to give the book only 1 but the writer really doesn't show any idea of geo political realities and I'm not sure he should have even thought of writing the book Dreadful honestly 1 out of 5 for much of any accuracy No idea why this was ever awarded the Clausewitz Medal of Honour for military writing unless the judges of the F├╝hrungsakademie were having a very off day as this closely resembles some teen's geopolitical fan fiction musings not far off a Youtube video for erudite insight than it could be said to be a cogent exposition extrapolating future events as theorised from contemporary events Still that being said if familiar with current geopolitics 'tis worth a read for a laugh as you can play 'Spot the erroneous presumptions' whilst reading it 375 from 5 for comedy value A stimulating exercise in trying to predict where existing trends in men and technology could take us with special reference to the Middle East A sort of war game novel written after Ira '91 it carries us though rising Islamic militancy and expertise Western complacency and Russian re grouping The title reveals the penultimate outcomeTom Clancy is a better story teller but this has its own purpose and I think achieves it well A bit contrived in places but considering it was published before 11 September 2001 it is an impressive piece of speculation A nice addition to any ones alternative history collection Written as a near future prediction of modern warfare it now stands as an interesting and fun exercise for one to indulge inNot the best book in this sort of 'Third World War' inspired field it is however in my opinion a very good read70 % I enjoy hypothetical situations in literature and this did that very well If there's a series built around the idea I'd give it a read for sure The title gives away the point of the book not recommended for the militarily adverse
