A book combining military strategy, mastery of modern military technology, a surefire sense of political and diplomatic reality with a hefty dose of good old-fashioned storytelling.
A dramatic portrayal of a Mexican revolution -- one that tragically and inexorably draws the United States into major battles with its own border. The US is caught by surprise as a Mexican revolution suddenly destabilizes the almost-2000-mile long undefended border between the two countries. Diplomatic negotiations begin, but a series of savage cross-border attacks on American civilians forces the United States to mobilize its armed forces, invade Mexico, and establish a security zone. While the controversial invasions is hotly debated, the United States must win quickly what could become a long, bloody war.

Harold Coyle, bestselling author of "Team Yankee", "Sword Point", and "Bright Star", is acclaimed as one of America's finest military adventure novelists, a master of war on the grand scale and of the brutal realities of battlefield combat. In "Trial by Fire" he brings his powerful vision to beat on the complex interplay among war, politics and the media - in an age when the telivision minicamera is as powerful a weapon as the awesome arsenal of high technology.

Enjoying a brief period of peace, the United States is caught by surprise when a government overthrow in Mexico suddenly destabilizes the two countries' almost 2,000-mile-long undefended border. Diplomatic negotiations begin, but a series of savage cross-border attacks on civilians compels the U.S. to mobilize its armed forces, invade Mexico and establish a security zone. While politicians and the people debate the controversial invasion, the United States Army must win quickly what could deteriorate into a long, bloody war.

In the chaos of revolution, fierce fighting, and stark political choices, the memorable men and women of Harold Coyle's gripping new novel plunge deeper into the mortal struggle of two nations - and "Trial by Fire" speeds toward an unforgettable climax.
