A disturbingly realistic vision of war several decades into the future. Invasion: China is as ambitious as it is powerful. Using advanced technologies in military science, the world's superpowers battle on land, sea, air, and space for global supremacy. This controversial tale will keep you sleepless at night as America challenges the new colossus in the East: Greater China and her Pan-Asian allies. Hard-hitting. Vast in scope. And all too possibly real.
Continually freezing weather has devastated the Earth's food supply, making US soil the most valuable in the world. A shattered, debt-ridden America suffered invasion by half the world and faced tactical nuclear weapons in her heartland. Now she wants revenge.
In the end, nuclear-tipped torpedoes, deadly laser systems and rail guns cannot replace the grunts on the battlefield. Asian snows turn red with blood as the fate of the world hangs in the balance - this is the thundering geopolitical technothriller, Invasion: China.

"Down Goes China! Down Goes China!"
What did you love best about Invasion: China?
This audiobook is loaded with solid action / combat scenes in the sea, land, air and lower Earth orbit. Once I pressed play I couldn't press stop.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Brigadier General Stan "The Professor" Higgins. His grasp of military history and battlefield leadership basically kept the U.S. armed forces from getting their collective asses handed to them by the Chinese. What put him in the top slot was a statement he made to one of his underlings when the lieutenant questioned his decision not to disengage and conserve ammunition during a bombardment of Chinese forces defending a river crossing somewhere in Northern China after there were indications of Chinese starting a "Bugout Boogy" - "No son, We'll remain here to deal death." Needless to say, the bombardment continued.
What does Mark Ashby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Solid narration that kept the action flowing. Professional job by a quality narrator.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
My belief in the ability for our species to lower the bar of cynical ruthlessness and depraved inhumanity was confirmed through the Chinese leader's murderous machinations and the counterproductive, myopic, conniving back stabbing act of the American Militia forces.
Any additional comments?
This series ended not with a boom, but with multiple radioactive mushroom clouds. Vaughn Heppner's Invasion America series was a joy to listen to. I highly recommend this final book and the rest of the series.
By the way, my choice of headline was inspired by Howard Cosell's historic call during the Ali v. Frasier fight, but I am sure you already figured that out.....
