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.

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 reading...as 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?

I enjoyed the story but hate the fact that the author left us hanging. The next volume should be available. I want to see how the war ends.

The idea is fascinating. Let's have China and America choose up sides and have a war. This middle volume of three moves right along, mixing military action with politics. Many modern weapons systems are showcased in action. The problem is with the writing. Wrong word usage, awkward construction, and other crimes against the language get in the way of enjoying the story. This author needs the immediate help of an editor who can fix the flaws.

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.

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.
