Book Eighteen in the Acclaimed Naval Aviation Series!
 
When the Chinese fire a test missile that detonates in Taiwan, they claim it was all an accident. But the U.S. is less than willing to believe their story, and sure enough, China launches a full-scale invasion on their tiny capitalist island neighbor—and the entire world goes into an uproar.
 
But while the diplomats wage a battle of words in the United Nations, the real dirty work is to be carried out by Carrier Battle Group Fourteen—the only fighting force standing between the juggernaut of the Chinese military and the total annihilation of Taiwan…
 
In the bestselling tradition of Tom Clancy, Larry Bond, and Charles D. Taylor, this electrifying novel captures the vivid reality of international combat. The Carrier Battle Group Fourteen—a force including a supercarrier, amphibious unit, guided missile cruiser, and destroyer—is brought to life with stunning authenticity in a high-tech thriller as explosive as today’s headlines.
