Description of this Book

In this exciting, visionary, and all-too-plausible next chapter in the legendary Dale Brown's New York Times bestselling techno-warfare series, Brad McLanahan and the Iron Wolf Squadron must fight the Russians on a dangerous, untested battlefield: outer space. The previous administration's ineffective response to the growing Russian threat has left America vulnerable. Setting a bold course for America's defense, the decisive and strong new president, John Dalton Farrell, intends to challenge Russian aggression head on. Brad and Patrick McLanahan and the formidable Iron Wolf Squadron--including the recently injured Nadia Roz, rested and back to fighting form thanks to a pair of state-of-the-art prosthetic legs--are ready and eager to join the battle. But even with their combined forces, the Russian menace may prove too great for the Americans to overcome. Done with provocative skirmishes and playing for small stakes, the Russian president has set his sights on the ultimate prize: controlling the entire world. Expanding beyond earth's bounds, the Russians have built a new high-tech space station and armed it with weaponry capable of destroying US satellites as well as powerful missiles pointed at strategic targets across earth. Devising a cunning plan of attack, Brad, Nadia, and the Iron Wolf warriors will take to the skies in their advanced space planes to destroy the space station, check the Russians' plan for dominance, and save the world. But is it already too late?

A fun read that really shines with the author's convincing knowledge of military aircraft. --Kirkus Reviews on The Moscow Offensive Spectacular... The action builds to an exciting climactic battle... Brown shows once again why he stands out in the crowded military thriller genre. --Publishers Weekly on The Moscow Offensive Brown has long been a master at high-tech thrillers, and... there is no denying that he knows his stuff... Even with a long-running series, he continues to find ways to keep the action lively and relevant. For the Tom Clancy crowd, Brown remains the go-to guy. --Booklist on The Moscow Offensive
