Written by a former Marine Corps pilot, DEFCON One is a blistering scenario of men and war - exciting, tense, and frighteningly real.

High tech, high suspense, high tension!

Cold war heats up to the brink of Armageddon! Geopolitical intrigue. Small inner circle politburo cabal of Soviet hardliners opposed to glasnost are convinced that the only way to achieve the Communist goal of world domination and return the Soviet Union to its former glory is to destroy the United States in a surprise all out nuclear first strike. The depth of the author's knowledge of the inner workings of the respective governments and the military command structure made the story real enough to be an account of history thst could have been. The realistic dialogue and detailed description of the aerial combat scenes put me back in the cockpit
The narration was first class - literally made me like I was present as a participant. Overall, a great and thrilling read.

The reader is so bad!

The reader's breathing is so loud it wreaked the book for me. Gave up on chapter 3.
