Publisher's Summary

"Delta-Two, I've got tanks through the wire! They're everywhere!"
World War III explodes in seconds when a resurgent Russian federation launches a deadly armored thrust into the heart of Germany. With a powerful blizzard providing cover, Russian tanks thunder down the autobahns while specially trained Spetsnaz teams strike at vulnerable command points.
Standing against them are the woefully undermanned American forces. What they lack in numbers, they make up for in superior weapons and training. But before the sun rises, they are on the run across a smoking battlefield crowded with corpses.
Any slim hope for victory rests with one unlikely hero. Army Staff Sergeant George O'Neill, a communications specialist, may be able to reestablish links that have been severed by hostile forces, but that will take time. While he works, it's up to hundreds of individual American soldiers to hold back the enemy flood.
There's one thing that's certain: The thin line between victory and defeat is also the red line between life and death.

Awful... just awful, and in SO many ways.

A bad tale, quite poorly executed. Wildly unrealistic and inaccurate prose by someone who has only fleeting experience with military operations, and even less with how military personnel speak with one another. Numerous and distracting technical problems. Flagrantly silly plot holes that you could drive an M1 Abrams Main Battle Tank through. The whole work is a sorry affair. Listeners, you've been warned!

Quick paced

Quick paced yes, but needed a bit more flesh on the bones of the story. Actually I believe it should be 3 1/2 stars. But not up to the skill of a John Ringo or David Weber.
