Fire of the Raging Dragon by Don Brown is a fiction military action story. In the classic Tom Clancy style story the author presents a situation where the Chinese start a military conflict with Taiwan and the United States gets involved to try and resolve the conflict.
The authors knowledge of military SOP and his knowledge of the world climate comes through in his story. Even though it is a fictitious situation, there is a enough probability to it that you feel that it is happening today. The characters are realistic and you find yourself rooting for more than one to succeed.
The action comes quickly and there is little down town between action sequences. I enjoy a detailed account of military equipment and situation room conversations, Don Brown gives me just enough to be satisfied but not too much to bore the less detailed minded reader.
If you enjoy Tom Clancy or WEB Griffen books, read Don Brown, you will be glad you did.
