Whilst this book isn't some award winning literary work, it still is quite entertaining. It's all about an escalation between North & South Korea that spirals out of control dragging the world into armed conflict. The escalation and battles are realistic, with the novel being set in 1990, so whilst the technology and warfare isn't to today's standards the details are correct for the period (including North Korea's leader being Kim Il-sung).

Towards the latter half as things heat up the book becomes more gripping and the author having a series in mind ends on reasonable cliff hanger to keep you interested in continuing.

One thing I found lacking was the lack of chapter subtitles in reference to the time, whilst some chapters do say "...some months later" during the opening paragraphs it would have been nicer to have a specific date at the beginning of each chapter so you can better place mentally how events are unfolding.

Other than that, it was good. ( )

I didn't know this was a series of books. As a result the ending didn't make a lot of sense. ( )
