Michael J. Coumatos is a former U.S. Navy test pilot, ship's captain, and commodore; U.S. Space Command director of wargaming; and a government counterterrorism advisor. William Scott is a retired bureau chief of "Aviation Week and Space Technology" and a nine-year Air force veteran who served as aircrew on nuclear sampling missions. He is a six-time Royal Aeronautical Society "Journalist of the Year" finalist, and won the Society's 1998 Lockheed Martin Award for the "Best Defense Submission." He also received both the 2006 and 2007 Messier-Dowty awards for "Best Airshow Submission." With the help of New York Times bestselling author William J. Birnes, these renowned experts have joined forces to grippingly depict how the first hours of World War III might play out in the year 2010. Coumatos, Scott, and Birnes take the reader inside U.S. Strategic Command, where top military commanders, space-company executives, and U.S. intelligence experts are conducting a DEADSATS II wargame, exploring how the loss of critical satellites could lead to nuclear war. The players don't know that the war they are gaming has already begun, miles above them in the lifeless, silent cold of space. Jam-packed with the actual systems and secret technologies the United States has or will soon field to protect its space assets, " Space Wars" describes a near-future nuclear nightmare that terrorists will relish but politicians prefer to ignore. In a quieter, more peaceful time, "Space Wars "would be an exciting work of fiction. But with the United States now at war, " Space Wars" is all too real. .… (mere)

I love apocalyptic scenarios. If you like laying awake at night worrying about how fragile modern technological society is and how easily we could be attacked, this book is for you. ( )

Not the worst book ever, but it may not have helped that I have been involved in a number of the real programs discussed in this book and the representation here of everything from USAFA to DSP to inner working of the Pentagon was contrived and a bit too much of a caricature of real things. Wouldn't recommend.

In fact, I'll have to say that I wouldn't recommend any book with a forward by George Noory. That is probably a bad sign about a book that I should have taken more seriously. ( )
