The world is in the throes of economic decay and at the mercy of terrorists. Across this post-apocalyptic landscape marches one extraordinary soldier and his band of brothers. In a novel as disturbingly plausible as it is powerfully gripping, they are headed into a battle in which they will have to come to grips with the power of technology and the true price of freedom.

I read it 2 decades ago, and decided to listen to it anew.
What a brilliant description of what a commander ought to be and do.
In those days of uncertainty, when government leaders are all about self power and blood shedding, this book is highly recommended :-)
the performance is excellent! the story is one that should be part of all countries history lessons. very educational. it should be required reading for any politicians.
I really like some of the readings by Roddy McDowall and one of my favorites is his reading of Ole Doc Methuselah.
He also reads this book as well and does a good job. (It incorrectly says Bruce Boxleitner)
I was surprised that I liked this story as much as I did. I orginally bought it as a gift, but then listened and enjoyed it very much. This is ultimately a book of loyalty, love and character in the face of cowardice at the highest level of government. As important today as when it was written.
