This book exceled among all others in my line of favorites. I have read various war books. Such titles are Team Yankee, Red Storm Rising, Hunt for Red October...etc. This book combines plot, and scenery to capture your atention, in even the first 3 pages. This book, being staged in the future, refers to past incedents, uses things that we are accustomed to, and explains things we otherwsie wouldn't understand in great detail. This book surprised me, and kept me on the edge of my seat, the only reason I put it down, was because school and sleep kept inturupting me. I recommend this book to all those who like adventure, suspense, and an all around greatly written book.
