Publisher's Summary

Part II, The Crescent Strikes: As 2100 dawns, revolutionary America is governed by a triumvirate of "welfies". The military member of the trio is a young ex-Marine, Ben Bjorn. While China demands food relief and threatens war, Europe pleads for military help against the Turkish-led Moslems. As if those two perils weren't enough, rebellion simmers below the feet of the Welfie government.
Copying Eisenhower's example in the Cold War, Bjorn leads an American army to Europe's defense. In early spring, the Moslems cross the Bosphorus into Europe and throw back part of Bjorn's army. He fights a series of battles, including one involving an Achiever-led insurrection.
Betrayals and attempted assassinations deepen the fog of war.

A Narrator Who Doesn't Try Too Much

Where does The Crescent Strikes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The title represents one of my pet peeves. Mr. Dietz stayed within himself. Not too dramatic, not to monotone. Good Job. The story seems a a bit of a stretch in reality, but NOT impossible. The characters are interesting and there are some fun story twists. I will follow this series.

Any additional comments?

<br/> A great follow up audiobook This audiobook describes technology and events that are completely believable. Good writing, lots of suspense, and human weakness. The narration added excitement .
