Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Dale Brown goes beyond the headlines in this high-tech, high-tension military thriller in which a resurgent Russia enflames sectarian unrest and violence in Ukraine and Poland, setting off a stealth robotic war and escalating an international crisis.

In the spring of 2017, the US economy is rebounding under President Stacy Anne Barbeau, the country's first female president. But her leadership is about to be severely tested: Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov has sent special troops, disguised as pro-Russian activists, into Ukraine and Moldova. Though NATO is outraged, its response is tepid. Refusing to let Russian aggression go unpunished, former US president Kevin Martindale approaches Polish president Peter Wilk with a radical solution: a counterattack using a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID): manned robots.

Underwritten by the wealthy Wilk, Operation Iron Wolf is launched - without the knowledge of the Americans or its NATO partners. The CID's initial strikes are successful, infuriating Gryzlov and propelling President Barbeau to pledge Western help to investigate the attack. With international tensions at the boiling point, Martindale's secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, is determined to outmaneuver the Russians.

In this battle that will determine the fate of Eastern Europe, just which side will win?

    Story
    "A bit too far fetched."

    I know it is fiction but this book was too far fetched. Also it kind of just ends.

    Story
    "Not my favorite narrator, also not the best book"

    The narrator has some strange timing and enunciation that grated on me a little. however this also was far from the best Dale Brown book. The story line is tanking with the far fetched concept of the CID now keeping McClanahan alive. I like fantasy, but sometime you keep to let a character die as part of the story.

    "If your wings don't swing you aint ...."

    I enjoyed the story greatly. Mr Brown is a fantastic storyteller. I have read 6 books starting with flight of the old dog. I was happy to see you use F 111 as a subject as I was an aircrew life support tech at RAF Lakenheath 1977 to 79. Thanks

    "excellent story with superb narration"

    I can never get enough of Dale Brown novels. Every one of them is excellent with great technical detail and realistic military action. the narrator for this book was excellent using a wide variety of accents and intonation for different characters. He did a really good job.

    "The Story could be true - Scary"

    The Russian President is very much like the story character, ex-KGB, ruthless and not trust worthy. Unless we stop him, it could come to this.

    Story
    "Typical for the series"

    I always come away disappointed, one of the best tecno-military guys uses the same plot and characters in every book. I understand that the publishers want to continue a profitable franchise but why is there always a "evil" antagonist and absurdly inept often corrupt American politician. I just wish he would write more realistic leading caricatures (character) and leave the sensational politics out of it. That is my opinion, never going to happen.

    Story
    "More A-team than Tom Clancy"
    What disappointed you about Iron Wolf?

    Flimsy story, Lacks any geopolitical realism, characters are almost cartoonesk. Author has no clue about how military aviation works.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will avoid this author that is for sure


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I actually like William Dufris but in this story the Eastern European (English) accents tend to irritate after a while. Sorry William...


    What character would you cut from Iron Wolf?

    The Russian President, Brad, Heck... almost all characters are completely over the top!


    Any additional comments?

    I chose this book because it was about a geopolitical problem that is very real in our times: the changing behaviour of the Russian Republic towards its neighbours. This book failed miserably to fullfill my expectations.
