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.

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.

Well, this book was just plain epic. From the technology, to the battles, to the characters. I would easily say that it is comparable to Red Storm Rising (Tom Clancy) and better in many aspects.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Jeff Meads on February 21, 2011
Format: Hardcover
The Dragon's Fury series layed out a predictive geopolitical scenario wherein an alliance between China, India, and a Greater Islamic Republic join forces against the United States and its few remaining allies. We're watching this Islamic Republic take shape today, in pretty much the form predicted by Mr. Head almost a decade ago. The minor differences between his fictional story and current reality can easily be overlooked in light of the real-life ramifications that are sure to follow.

As for China turning militant against the US, we are rapidly approaching the economic stimulus for such a case. If nations start defaulting on their national debt, as many are perched to do today (2011), a domino effect of national defaults will occur, and we will have the catalyst for another world war. China's military buildup continues unabated, while our defenses are being undermined by enemies within, day by day. India's role in the fictional story as a half-hearted member of the enemy alliance is easily predictable due to its geographic location and its large minority of muslims.

Critics seem to focus on a few spelling and editing errors, which should be expected in a self-published series. What they seem to miss are the warnings this story provided about the economic and political stage being set for the current precarious state of the nations.

I read each of the paperback versions as they became available, then got the consolidated hardback version when it became available. We have some difficult years ahead, and with the Dragon's Fury series, Mr. Head described the framework for most of the global events we see unfolding.

I disagree with the author that the overall population of the United States will unite in the face of overwhelming odds.
