Since Sky Masters - when the B2 was on top of South East Asia's Sea, I found another big blast wind from the east. Brown took more serious what happen if China invades Taiwan (I am hoping it's never happen). I read Brown's thriller even more scary this time. All the ballistic missiles ready to aim Taiwan, major scales battle! Hardly to imagine. Definitely Very accurate story and Yes! another best writter from Brown.
Don't ever miss this!

Despite the liberal posters and armchair military experts, I loved this book! Sure, many of the weapons and situations are fictional (as far as I know).
The excessive military jargon was almost humorous and actually fun to read. Brown makes sure you know what all the acronyms mean. The situations and flight duals with jets and missiles were great. The plot had some great twists.
It had me looking up all the different aircraft used. A fun and hard to put down book, I would highly recommend it!

Fatal Terrain is another excellent book by Dale Brown. In this wonderful book, the Chinese are going to invade Taiwan. When the USA runs to thier side to defend them, they find themselves in a heap load of trouble around the world. Join Patrick McLanahan, Brad Elliot, and Jon Masters in this exciting book to defeat the Chinese War Machine. I recomend you read Sky Masters and Shadows of Steel before you read Fatal Terrain.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Fatal Terrain" refers to one of the many theories on war espoused by Sun-Tzu, a clue that Dale Brown's latest novel is aimed at communist China (Brown's books dwell on the same characters in a loose series that seems to shift between eastern Europe, the far east and Iran). In "Fatal", Beijing is moved to take a stab at conquering Taiwan again (called Formosa Dao) by a fiery Admiral Sun - who isn't so much a fiery communist as he is military minded. Ceaselessly quoting Sun-Tzu for a cadre of top-ranking red Chinese (who speak in the same stilted pseudo-language that all foreigners speak in technothrillers), Admiral Sun whips the moribund Chinese military into shape. PLAN ships and PLAAF planes arrayed with the latest hardware, and upgraded missiles lay waste to Taiwan, while the Americans are paralyzed by liberals, bureaucrats and - because the USAF is the only service capable of readily meeting the threat - practically crippled by the craven Navy Admiral Balboa. To meet the threat, the Americans rely on the covert help of Brad Eliot and his Dreamland team. Recycled from previous Brown books, Eliot is reviled as a man who doesn't play by the rules and won't let bureaucrats, liberals or the Navy get between him and the mission (okay, we're not really supposed to hate the guy, we're supposed to root for a guy who won't be a team player when the team is staffed with morons). With his souped-up B-52, the "Megafortress", he starts a secret war against the Chinese. Unfortunately, not all the high-tech on the planet can match the Chinese in terms of numbers or media-manipulation. First gamely assisting his mentor, hero AF ace Pat McLanahan comes to realize that Eliot may at last be going too far...even for him.Read more ›

Fantastic Audio Book by Dale Brown. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
In this story the US is about to retire the B2 and other large heavy artillery bombers from service as many see they are no longer needed...At the same time China has decided that it finally wants Taiwan back and is going to go after it. Mostly with the plans of one man with a few outrageous ideas, making it seem like the US is helping Taiwan and is sabotaging many different Chinese events etc. When in fact it is all just part of the Chinese plan. In this one you see the retired McClannahan as well as Gen. Brad Elliot. They along with some of their new toys from Sykmasters Inc. and a few pals you have seen before or in the future stories, help to turn the tide of the on slot. In addition the Chinese actually use Nukes much to everyone's surprise. This is a fast paced audio with lots of information coming at you.
One this that was sorta annoying was that the narrator used the same voice for a few of the characters which confused me at first.

I read the entire book. You can enjoy the story only if you remind yourself that it is just fiction. Don't let the author's lack of knowledge about: a) politics; b) foreign affairs; c) the legal system; d) business or a host of other areas interfere with your reading. The characters are cartoon characters- no depth. The plot is predictable (the good guys win). That being said, Brown tells a good tale. I did finish it. It was entertaining if not great literature.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dale Brown uses current events to create a nonstop exciting military action and adventure. China attack Taiwan? It's a topic that's been circulated in very recent years.
You're given insight into military jargon, terms and strategies and a good dose of history to add more realism.
Brown is a good first step to reading Tom Clancy. He isn't too lengthy about technical terms, which at times are nice and at other occasions just too much detail. He tells you enough and continues the action without disrupting the scene.
This has been the first book by Dale Brown that I have read; I can't wait to read his others!
