In military circles it's known as Air Battle Force -- an air combat unit of the future, under the command of aerial warfare expert Major General Patrick McLanahan, capable of launching stealthy, precision-guided firepower to anywhere on the globe within hours. And now McLanahan and his warriors have their first target. Driven from Afghanistan, the parasitic forces of the deposed Taliban regime have decided to feed on a new host -- an isolated, oil-rich Central Asian neighbor that's ripe for the conquering. The battle for control of the world's largest oil deposits has begun, with unsteady alliances forming and opposing forces set to collide. And now a handful of American commandos half a world away, aided by McLanahan's unproven robotic warplanes, will have to triumph against overwhelming numbers in a war that nobody -- including "friendly" forces at home -- wants them to win.

Maverick pilot Patrick McLanahan takes aerial warfare into unknown territory in an explosive new adventure from the bestselling author of FLIGHT OF THE OLD DOG, WARRIOR CLASS and WINGS OF FIRE.
On America’s newest combat base McLanahan and his crew are devising the air combat unit of the future – the Air Battle Force. An elite team backed by leading-edge technology, they control an armada of unmanned planes that can reach any spot on the globe within hours, and they will have their first target when an oil dispute turns Turkmenistan into an international battleground. But can a handful of commandos and an unproven force of experimental warplanes fight and win a war in which seemingly everyone – even ‘friendly’ forces at home – wants them to fail?Review:
‘Clancy’s got serious company.’
New York Daily News
‘When a former pilot turns to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional … far too good to be missed.’
‘Dale Brown is a superb storyteller.’
‘Brown gives us quite a ride – his flying sequences are terrific … authentic and gripping.’
New York Times
