Book Description

Russia has been shattered. Its armies, saved from total annihilation only by a desperate resort to nuclear weapons, have fallen back in the face of an otherwise-unstoppable Chinese advance. India, devastated by a nuclear assault, turns against the nation it believes is ultimately responsible for the attack. Taiwan, its navy and air force destroyed, is fighting block-by-block to defend its cities from the invading People’s Liberation Army.

With the rest of the world either unwilling to unable to join the conflict, the only hope of free people everywhere is that the United States, despite economic disaster and years of domestic disorder, can rally the English-speaking peoples to advance to the defense of liberty once again.

The fight will not be easy. In order to survive the Allies will need a leader who rejects everything that entire generations of mentally-fossilized leaders in the West have stood have. In Washington, there is such a man.

I come before you today,” says President Alexander Harris to the Congress, “to ask only that you vote for war not to end all wars, but to end this war and to restore peace to the world.”

In “The Blast of War”, Adam Yoshida told the story of how present world conditions - if they were allowed to deteriorate further - might lead us towards a Third World War. Now, in “A Land War in Asia”, he imagines just what such a terrible conflict might entail, as China and the Allies trade mighty blows, Chinese hackers and diplomats seek any small advantage they might gain, and American soldiers, sailors, and airmen are asked to take aged equipment to fight battles in places they never even though they’d see, let alone go to war in.

About the Author:

In addition to the “Blast of War”, Adam Yoshida is a commentator whose work has appeared in the National Post, The Washington Times, and the American Thinker.

Really enjoyed this short novel. I'm a fan of near future war books and this is one of the most well thought out i've read. What i enjoyed most i think is that it isn't an american centric book. It really does involve the whole world. Really looking forward to the third installment of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Involved With This Land War In Asia April 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A Land War in Asia is the sequel to Yoshida's A Blast of War and it picks up with the election of a new US President and west's conflict with an agressive China.

Like Blast of War, this is not written as a novel but instead as a historical account of events that had already to come to pass. However, this is no dry recounting of events as the storytelling gives the reader an insight into the characters of the day.

A Blast of War is one of the best fictional accounts of a future war I've come across, and A Land War in Asia is an excellent follow-up that leaves you wanting the third and final volume in the series.

I love the what if and could of been and could happen genre; but you take us in with so much speed and at the same time with such detail, I could not stop well your military knowledge and political background is well on display my friend. there are things only a select few would know or hypothesize, you communicate it all with ease, but I am beating about the bush...when is your next instalment?

As an ex navy vet of 15 years who serve in the Pacific for 5 of them this story struck a nerve . The author has come very close to storytelling our possible future. China is on a mission! To make the Pacific it own private lake. The world, our Commander in chief needs to wake up!!!

Starts to pick up and show some promise then bogs down in the mundane. Don't bother it is not worth the bandwidth or your time.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting view on wold war three September 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some plots are not entirelly unplausable, Certainly the possibility of a Chinese landgrab against resource rich but scarcely populated Siberia and the Russian Far East is a scenario that is realistic enough that it worries the leaders in Moscow. The present appeasement policy towards China combined with increased focus on the military in the east compared to traditionally focusing almost entirelly on western areas and the muslim south is a clear indication of that. However the nuclear deterrent is a strong factor in preventing those fears from becoming reality. There is no guarantee that Russia would chose to use only tactical nukes as in this book, if they were truly invaded and it looked like their conventional defense would collapse

The Geo Political difficulties (the increasing military and economic strength of China inspiring varying degrees of wariness to fear from almost all of China's neighbours except possibly North Korea) and economic restraints are depected much more realistically then for instance the "invasion Alaska" series (that one is highly entertaining, but lacks the grasps of economic and geo political realities that would prevent such a tremendous Chinese rise). At least in the opening stages of this depected conflict.

However the writer gets a bit carried away when depecting a Chinese invasion of Britain aided by Germany and France (angered by Britain's secession from the EU and conservative politics) way too much so.

This is far the best book in the trilogy. I loved the counterplay. I was used to the 1980s third world war senarios and this was a refreshing change.
