9780061173721: Shadow Command

General Patrick McLanahan returns in a battle to expose the corruption at the heart of the American government.

General Patrick McLanahan's provocative Aerospace Battle Force has grown in to a fully fledged task force, based in orbit on the Armstrong Space station. However, their successful defeat of the Iranian threat is making people nervous. Apparently under pressure from the Russians, the UN and the liberal press, newly elected President Joseph Gardener cuts their funding and fires McLanahan branding him an obstacle to the peace process. What the public doesn't know is that Gardener is being blackmailed by the Russians who hold damning evidence of his adulterous relationships and other scandals.

With the ABF decommissioned the Russians begin to amass troops around Iran and the Persian Gulf. McLanahan, going against orders, attacks the Russian forces and delays their attack. He warns the Russians that he will act unilaterally to stop them advancing in the Persian Gulf.

Though the President, furious with his behaviour, has ordered his arrest, McLanahan is virtually untouchable and he knows it. Located on one of the most secure bases ever built, in command of an arsenal of the most sophisticated air weapons in the world, even the Marines and the FBI cannot touch him - for now. McLanahan, up against his own countrymen and an army of aggressive Russians must struggle to clear his name and expose the President's corruption

Review:

Praise for Dale Brown:

‘Clancy’s got serious company.’
New York Daily News

‘When a former pilot with years of experience turns his hand to writing thrillers you can take their authenticity for granted. His writing is exceptional and the dialogue, plots and characters are first-class…far too good to be missed.’
Sunday Mirror

‘Brown puts us into the cockpits of wonderful machines and gives us quite a ride. His flying sequences are terrific…authentic and gripping.’
New York Times Book Review

‘The best military adventure writer in the country.’
Clive Cussler

About the Author:

Dale Brown was a much decorated US Air Force Captain aboard B-52s and FB111 fighter bombers, and participated in numerous top secret tests and exercises held to simulate an actual strategic war. He became a recognised expert on air warfare and appeared on American TV as a commentator during the Gulf War.

Only a man with Dale Brown’s background could provide the detailed authenticity that makes his novels such compulsive reading.

Book Description Harper, 2009. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Based on the Armstrong Space Station orbiting the earth, the Black Stallion spaceplanes of General Patrick McLanahan's Aerospace Battle Force can attack any target on the planet within hours--and its powerful network of satellites can invade any computer network as easily as making a phone call. Western-educated Russian president Leonid Zevitin, one of the ABF's most dangerous adversaries, is determined to destroy all support for the space program by using a potent combination of top-secret anti-spacecraft weaponry, fear-mongering, and a new U.S. president's own egotism. But McLanahan and his forces will not allow the Russian aggression to stand. Sensing deep-seated treachery, the general ignores directives from the White House and Pentagon and dispatches the ABF to attack secret Russian bases in Iran--which results in a presidential order for his immediate arrest. But before they can throw Patrick McLanahan in prison, the government will have to figure out how to retrieve him from his stronghold in space. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_006117372X
