Publisher's Summary

In the midst of China’s colossal buildup, the undersea battles for control of the South China, East China, and Philippine Seas continues. China and the United States have put a majority of their submarines to sea, both seeking to effect a winning solution. 

The dangers of China’s missiles persist, effectively keeping America’s mighty carriers away from the conflict. But time is running out, and an answer to the threat must be found if the United States hopes to retain any hope of keeping the South China Sea out of China’s hands.

There’s also the looming threat coming from North Korea as they mass their troops close to the DMZ. OPLAN 5015 includes contingencies for preemptive strikes against the secretive nation, but with the threat of WMDs, will they view that as a viable option?

Re Tipping Point

A highly enjoyable story about military combat. Having served in the United States Navy and also had a close relationship with the Marines, it brought back a number of fond memories. Well done!

One of those audio books that make me drive around and waste gas

The writer clearly was in the Navy and has a deep military background. Great balance of action and detailed story. Very realistic. Some good warnings too. Can’t wait for book 4.
