Tiger's Claw September 2012
Former Air Force captain and New York Times bestselling author Dale
Brown is an acknowledged master when it comes to bringing military
action to breathtaking life and he has received glowing accolades since
his debut publication, Flight of the Old Dog. Tiger's Claw proves once
again that every rave has been well deserved. Set in the near future,
Tiger's Claw imagines a scenario in which tensions escalate between an
economically powerful China and a United States weakened by a massive
economic downfall, bringing the two superpowers to the brink of total
destruction. Brown's popular protagonist, retired Air Force
lieutenant-general Patrick McLanahan (of A Time for Patriots, Rogue
Forces, and other Brown bestsellers), is back and preparing for the
impending apocalyptic clash of men and military technology. The
incomparable Dale Brown scores again with a frighteningly possible story
of war and global politics that's ideal for fans of Vince Flynn and Brad
When China launches the first successful test of its anti-ship ballistic
missile, the future looks bleak for America. Fearing the U.S. will lose
its naval supremacy in the Pacific, President Kenneth Phoenix finds
himself in a compromised position. New technology requires money, but
the country is recovering from a massive recession. Without the funds to
compete with China's advancing technology, are the country's days of
naval preeminence in the Pacific running out?
Retired U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Patrick McLanahan refuses to
accept this fate. McLanahan reasons that the United States can afford to
refurbish old but potent long-range B-1B Lancer bombers to promote the
AirSea Battle strategy that will push back against Chinese aggression.
Soon America stands ready to deploy an AirSea Battle task force in the
South China Sea.
The People's Liberation Army aggressively deploys advanced fighters,
land-based antimissiles, three aircraft carriers, and exotic, top secret
directed energy weapons against their neighbors. But Patrick McLanahan
is finally given the green light to lead his force westward to challenge
the Chinese threat head-on.
