Air Force Col. Brandt Strickland must be on the moon in 22 months. At stake is control of the world's energy supply. He has no spacecraft, no crew, and a President vehemently opposed to his mission. His adventure becomes a personal metamorphosis, transforming him from an arrogant hyperpatriot into a mature leader, committed to improving cooperation and understanding among nations.
With extraordinary technical accuracy, THE MOON WAR follows Brandt through the triumphs and tragedies of his incredible oddyssey. Drawn from real life, its cast of astronauts, cosmonauts, politicians, engineers and scientists react to the story's unending trials with uncally realism.
