Once again Patrick McLanahan must save the world from World War III by using his impressive arsenal of super-weapons manned by maverick young pilots made in his own image. A snappy read and very enjoyable if you are into near-futuristic aerial weapons.

Patrick McLanahan is back. The veteran navigator-bombardier and brigadier general in the U.S. Air Force has been sent to a B-1B Lancer unit in Nevada to develop and train a tactical strike unit designed to seek out and destroy enemy missiles. He has his pick of the most aggressive Type A personalities in the flying game, though it may take years to pull this bunch together as a team.

Then time runs out. The fragile peace in Asia is shattered when what was supposed to be a joint U.S. Japan South Korea mock bombing raid turns lethal. Instead of keeping to the script, South Korean fighter-bombers destroy several North Korean Special Forces and secret police centers in support of a peoples revolt against the communist regime. To the worlds surprise, the raids are a success. The borders are thrown wide open and the
United Republic of Korea is born.

Thus begins a conflict that threatens to embroil Asia. Enter McLanahans raw, audacious team. Sent into the fray both to protect United Korea and to stop it from touching off World War III, Patricks small but potent bomber force has the worlds newest, most powerful non-nuclear weapon at its disposal --- if its aces ever stop fighting each other long enough to start fighting the enemy..

Patrick McLanahan is back--and this time he faces his most difficult challenge. He must pull together a team of aggressive, maverick young pilots to face a world on the brink of massive nuclear conflict. It begins with a joint U.S.--Japanese--South Korean mock bombing raid. But the South Korean fighter pilots don't stick to the script. Instead they race across the border into North Korea to support a massive people's revolt against the Communists.
Virtually overnight the fledgling United Korea is the world's newest nuclear power, igniting a fuse that threatens to blow Asia apart and trigger WW III. Only McLanahan has the top-secret aviation technology and the brash young heroes to stop the coming inferno, if he can get them to quit fighting each other and start fighting as a team before the world is reduced to cinders . . .
