Publisher's summary

World War III is a month old. After attacking and sinking the Destroyer USS Stacy Heath, the Chinese invade Tibet, and India counterattacks. Rather than allow the Chinese to seize control of the subcontinent, the US sends 20,000 US soldiers and Marines in to join the fight. The Russians invade Ukraine, which leaves NATO with no choice but to respond. A full-fledged ground war begins.

American forces are spread thin, and the decision is made to evacuate all personnel from Afghanistan. Troops have already begun to pull out, when Air Force JTAC (Joint Terminal Attack Controller) Dan Falco receives orders to kill a ruthless Taliban leader named Noor Mohammad Hashemi. But it won't be easy.

Meanwhile, 7,000 miles to the north, the Russians are holding a training exercise called Red Ice. Except that it isn't a training exercise, and if American forces fail to stop the enemy, the Russians will land on American soil. An accomplishment that would be a tremendous blow to American morale and would suck much-needed resources away from the conflicts in Europe and Asia.

Army Air Force and even Coast Guard personnel will do their best to push the Russians back. But will their best be good enough?
