After the United States suffers a devastating nuclear attack and is facing food shortages, power outages, cyber and AI assaults, and a wrecked economy, Admiral Dan Lenson leads an allied force assigned to turn the tide of war in the Pacific, using precisely targeted missiles and high-tech weapons systems.
But as the campaign begins, the entire Allied military and defense network is compromised by Jade Emperor, a powerful Chinese artificial-intelligence system that seems to anticipate and counter every move.
While Dan strives to salvage the battle plan, his wife helps coordinate strategy in DC, Marine sergeant Hector Ramos fights in an invasion of Taiwan, and Navy SEAL master chief Teddy Oberg begins a desperate journey into central China on a mission that may be the only way to save the United States from destruction and defeat.
Thrilling, filled with near-future technology, and deeply grounded in the human cost of war, Deep War is a brilliant novel by an acknowledged master of military fiction.

A worthy story but...
The narrator should talk to a sailor. It seems he thinks the word “corpsman” has an ‘s’ in the pronunciation. It doesn’t. It’s silent. It is pronounced KOR-mun with the emphasis on KOR. But then he probably thinks Obama was the smartest man in the room too.
An Absolutely Stunning Sequel
I absolutely loved the first book and did not know how the author was going to avoid over bloating a sequel or maintain my interest should this be a series. I have been pleasantly surprised and left wanting for more on both accounts respectively. Excellent strategic techno-thriller content with great characters and white knuckle military action throughout. Unbelievable effort by David Poyer and I cannot wait for the resolution in the next book.
