Summary
  • "The United States stands nearly alone in its determination to fight, rather than give into the expansionist demands of the aggressive new "People's Empire." The naval and air forces of the Associated Powers - China, Pakistan, Iran, and North Korea - have used advanced technology and tactical nuclear weapons to devastate America's fleet in the Pacific, while its massive army forced humiliating surrenders on Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, and other crucial allies..."--
  • World War with China explodes, and Dan Lenson has been promoted to admiral, at least for the duration. China's naval and air forces utilize advanced technology and tactical nuclear weapons to devastate America's traditional sea power, while its massive army swiftly forces humiliating treaties on Japan, the Philippines, and other crucial allies. Lenson is fighting to keep sea lanes open in the Central Pacific, to turn the tide and buy time for the Allies to regroup. Meanwhile, SEAL operator Teddy Oberg has escaped from a hellish POW camp, heading west toward what he hopes will be freedom
