Book Description

A global pandemic finds millions swarming across the U.S. border. Major American cities are leveled by black-market nukes. China’s growing civil unrest ignites a global showdown. Pakistan’s collapse leads to a hunt for its nuclear weapons. What if the worst that could happen actually happens? How will we respond? Are we prepared? 

These are the questions that Andrew F. Krepinevich asks—and answers—in this timely and often chilling book. As a military expert and consultant, Krepinevich must think the unthinkable based on the latest intelligence and geopolitical trends—and devise a response in the event our worst nightmares become reality. 

As riveting as a thriller, 7 Deadly Scenarios reveals the forces—both overt and covert—that are in play; the real ambitions of world powers, terrorist groups, and rogue states; and the actions and counteractions both our enemies and our allies can be expected to take—and what we must do to prepare before it’s too late.


Editorial Reviews

Review

“Andrew Krepinevich is one of the most insightful voices we now have on national security issues. You can read this book—or we can go on learning the hard way.” —Thomas E. Ricks, military correspondent, Washington Post, and author of Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq

“This insightful and provocative book must be read by our nation’s leaders, and those who are charged with protecting us now and into the next decade.” —Bing West, author of The Strongest Tribe and No True Glory

“Andrew Krepinevich has shown, once again, how best to think about the unthinkable. This prescient book identifies the all-too-real threats that our country faces and prescribes the steps that the president, the military, and Congress must take to meet them.” —Senator Joe Lieberman

“Andrew Krepinevich is one of the most original and insightful strategic thinkers of our time….His thought provoking scenarios of the most critical areas of national security policy raise profound and necessary questions that must be addressed today in order to prevail tomorrow.” —Senator Jack Reed

“Compelling.... the scenarios vividly illustrate how recent changes in technology, demographics, economics and war-fighting can expose little-suspected, but easily exploited, chinks in America's armor.... I would feel ... reassured today to see President Barack Obama with a copy of military futurist Krepinevich's 7 Deadly Scenarios. Hillary Clinton and Robert Gates would do well to put it on their reading lists, too. And so should you.”—Wall Street Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive look at threats in the near future March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Krepinevich addresses scenarios that are only talked about and seldom discussed in detail in the Pentagon. Most of the scenarios are addressed in the latest DoD strategy papers. However, some are not.
In light of sequestration, and the maddening emphasis on cutting defense, the book seems incomplete without a resourcing Analysis, including trade offs that will need to be made to reduCe the budget deficit and eventually the debt. Otherwise, this is an excellent resource on strategic thinking for the defense of our country. It is incisive and eye opening. Highly recommend it. (Submitted by a current student of NDU).

5.0 out of 5 stars Failure to plan is planning to fail! September 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is scary, but good scary. It sets out 7 scenarios that that are possible to occur to upset not only America but the world. It does a public service by pointing out that the failures in planning and preparation that are actually occurring right now will have consequenses. It's a warning that we should take some basic rational steps to control or direct the future course of events. There is a basic message here- plan for controlling future events or the events will control you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent and good estimation of what is coming March 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The advantage of history to look back and see the trends of the past and how they impacted the developments that actually did happen.

This book does a good job of projecting present developments onto the near and medium term future.
