A series of chillingly timely techno-terrorism thrillers featuring US Air Force aerial warfare expert, Major General Patrick McLanahan. 

With his crew of intrepid engineers, US Air Force Major General Patrick McLanahan is creating the combat unit of the future, Air Battle Force. Armed with cutting-edge precision-guided weapons, Air Battle Force is dedicated to keeping America safe, even if it means launching untested robotic warplanes at the risk of ending their military careers—if not their lives. Major General McLanahan and his unit travel to Afghanistan, Iraq, Turkey, Russia, and even China to take on myriad terrorist organizations. Thrilling covert operations and detailed descriptions of weaponry add authenticity to each novel. To add to the tension, McLanahan disobeys those in authority—including the nation’s Commander in Chief—when urgency takes priority over following orders.

William Dufris commands these gripping, state-of-the-arms thrillers. The narrator changes inflection and phrasing when switching among US soldiers and other foreign fighters. His narration never gets in the way of the action. Dufris’s somber sincerity makes each plot and the staggering array of advanced weaponry chillingly believable.
