Format: Hardcover
Having been intimately involved with this project from its inception several years ago, I have experienced something akin to birthing pains with the publication of each of the five volumes, and this collector's edition represents the end of a labor of love. :)

In all five volumes, Jeff exhibits a Clancy-like gift (actually in many aspects superior to Clancy, to my mind) that allows him to maintain as many as a dozen or more simultaneous story-lines, intricately knitting each separate piece of the larger puzzle together just often enough that the reader 'remembers' the common thread that runs through them all.

He also exhibits a masterful understanding of world history, current events, and military strategy, and a detailed knowledge of missile/ship/satellite/weapons functions, origins, capabilities and terminology.

The human element is also extraordinarily well portrayed. This isn't simply a cold, facts-and-figures account of World War III. During my attempts at editing, I came across many deeply touching, or deeply tragic, or deeply uplifting parts of the story that either brought me to the verge of tears, or left me with a major lump in my throat.

Yet, to my mind, the most appealing aspect of this series is its believability. Anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of the state of the world - especially the obsessive and violent nature of Muslim fanaticism - will be justifiably chilled by the realization that all of the horrors contained within the covers of these volumes are not out of the realm of possibility.

Format: Hardcover
Having read and reviewed all five volumes of this series, I can truthfully say the entire tale kept me enthralled, interested and excited right up to the end.

As the freedom loving republics of the world engage in a seven year long struggle against the greatest tyranny, enslavement, and atrocity that the world has ever known...you find yourself wondering right up to the end if the enemy will not pull something out of the hat to reverse things. And they do pull horrific things out of the hat that come close to undoing all of the progress made by the United States and her allies.

But even more than a tale of warfare and technology, which this series has been, in my estimation, and epic of...the story line really reveal its depth and goodness in the lives of the people involved, and the punctuation that is made regarding morality, reason and the other underlying principles the make the type of liberty possible in the United States possible.

Despite all of the horror and hardship...this story stands as a monument to faith, the timeless struggle of good against evil and, the level of commitment that makes the eventual triumph of good over evil possible. There is enough historical background and precedence written into and described in rich detail in this series that I can recommend it not only to those who love the military techno-thriller genre...but to anyone interested in an uplifting experience regarding the points I just made.

Thanks a lot Mr. Head...you provided me with days of great reading and left me with good feelings, despite the concerns raised by the series about current geo-political circumstance.

Format: Hardcover
I have read and reviewed each of the individual novels and then discovered that there is this hardback that contains all five.

I am honestly excited to find this out and will add the hardback to my library because the five novels it represents were so very good!

This is, simply stated, the best overall, modern World War III story on the market today.

Naval battles and strategy, Air Force, Amry, Marines, Amphibious assault, espionage, terror, weapons of mass destruction, geo-political intrigue, high tech weaponry, research and development, space warfare, asymetrical warfare...this novel has it all with a wide cast of real-life characters...many of whom die (including some of the most major characters) along the way...whose every day lives are impacted in compelling ways by the overall war story.

Highly recommended with five stars. I hope some day Mr. Head and this series are picked up by a major publication house as the entire thing is apparently self-published. This series deserves major publication.

Format: Hardcover
Too Long: The book starts off well but could have been abbreviated to 1/5 its total length and likely would have been better. There are simply too many fillers in between the pages that do not lead to much nor add to anything.

Amateur hour: The US fighters took off, they fired their missiles against the enemy aircrafts who also fired back their missiles. In the ensuing engagement, the enemy fighters suffered terribly but the US fighters were almost wiped off. Rinse and repeat this story line a couple of times and this constitutes the primary story of the air battle throughout the book. The book betrays a shallow understanding of naval operations ... such as how CVN operations are undertaken and is thoroughly dismissive of certain weapons platform such as the LA Class attack submarines which fare no better than being fat juicy targets for the cavitating torpedoes deployed by the enemy.

Very poor story line: Almost 95% of the book shows how the enemy rolled up and decisively defeat the best that the US and its Western allies could muster. The US and their allies were mostly passive and just took the blows on the chin. Then overnight, in the last few pages of the book, the enemies were simply defeated? The book focuses primarily on an implausible story line that super cavitating torpedoes can bring the western navies and thus its overseas armed forces to its knees. No mention is made of cyber warfare which surely will precede any global conflict.

The plot of the story could have have worked if the author drew it up tightly. Instead, the author seems to have ambled along and wandered all over. Finally getting tired and being unable to finish the story well, the book ends in a whimper that is entirely unsatisfactory.
