When I was a teenager, my guilty reading pleasure was books about nuclear war and its aftermath. 50 years later, every once in a while, I see a library book (fiction) about nuclear war, and I feel compelled to check it out. I need to stop doing that.

The authors of this one are military officers (current or past), so the book is written from a military standpoint, with stereotypical characters and very little regard for what happens afterwards. It's about a "tactical" nuclear war, which is apparently not as bad as a "strategic" nuclear war. I should probably not have chosen to read a book written by someone who thinks a nuclear war, if it's just "tactical," might be winnable. Anyway, a couple of months down the road after reading this I can't remember much about it, other than that I didn't like it. So, not recommended.

1 1/2 stars

I will note that on Amazon some reviewers who know more about military things than me said this is a good "cautionary tale," although why anyone would need a cautionary tale against nuclear war is beyond me. On the other hand, another reviewer said the book consisted of "a series of tit for tat actions that are...strategically moronic...{and} morally repugnant." ( )

This is a moderately entertaining World War III scenario, which suffers from a pretty severe believability issue. Without getting too far into “spoiler” territory, the catalyst for conflict lies in the South China Sea. The U.S. and China have conflict there, triggered by use of cyber weapons. All of that is believable.

As the title suggests, the events occur in the near future, 2034. However, the geo-political landscape that exists is so far in the future as to be ridiculous. In particular, the relative standing of India is magnified to an absurdity. At one point, it is mentioned that India is making foreign aid payments to the United States. Really.

Now, India and China are the two most populous countries in the world. It is not unbelievable that both would ascend in relative geo-political power, especially China. However, to put India at or near the top of the heap in less than 15 years from today, ruins the premise of the book for me. ( )

This book is interesting, and plausible in many ways. However, it is also a book. that fails to live up to its promise.

It starts with a cyber-attack, by China on the USA. From there on, it slides downhill. Given Elliot Ackerman's background in the defense services, I thought he would have been well prepared to write a truly gripping novel that brings in elements of 4GW and 5GW.

Instead, we ended up with a few cardboard characters, and the completely implausible prospect of India 'ending the war'.

What the book does demonstrate, however, is how small incidents can quickly escalate, and how other countries get involved in the mix. ( )

Scary scenario, not much action, thin characters. Maybe 3-1/2 stars ( )
