Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

One official of Outskirts Press commented that she didn't know if she was reading a fictional account or if it could be the real thing.

From the Author

As an avid reader of such fiction novels (Tom Clancy for example) I wondered if I could produce such a work that people might enjoy. Since I follow world happenings both military and diplomatic, I tried to produce a work that would interest such readers as myself. Many times I pick up a copy of my own book and read selected chapters to see if I would find such a book interesting. I hope that those who read this book find it as interesting to read as it was to write.

Format: Paperback
Korean War Veteran Jim Kenfield has given readers a sample of his military experience and imaginative style in Ultimate Victory Denied A Complex and Disastrous Plot Against America. What seems to be a shipping mistake has turned into the discovery of a Chinese plot to cripple America with nuclear devices operated via satellite. Although Kenfield delivers this narrative production from a fictional point of view, the content is laden with realism and modern relativity.
With such a convincing tone, Ultimate Victory Denied A Complex and Disastrous Plot Against America, engages as well as challenges the mind with regard to American and Chinese relations. This organized adventure delivers excitement, anticipation, and entertainment on an otherwise controversial and less fictionally approached subject--military life. Its opening--albeit carefully guided, summons attention with character accusations, suspicion, and mayhem.
Kenfield has expanded creativity by integrating military subject matter into the world of fictional literature. Each moment is inquisitively crafted with its personable character descriptions, and comparative nature. Ultimate Victory Denied A Complex and Disastrous Plot Against America has more than proven its ability capture and involve readers despite its fictional basis.

With the world in turmoil today and events occurring that threaten America's existence, this book portrays an event that could very well happen. One can only imagine what the result would have been if this was NOT fiction and the plot had not been discovered.

The event that this is based on could very well happen, OR, could have already taken place but was stopped in the nick of time. One must remember a recent fiction work that involved a foreign airline pilot flying his huge aircraft into the United States Capitol building and virtually destroying the American Congress.
Could this have been the idea behind the 9/11 terrorists using airliners to destroy the Twin Towers and the Pentagon?

In the scenario posed by this work the plan was to cripple America so that another emerging major power could control almost one third of the world's area without having to worry about being challenged by the now crippled United States.

With much military speak and diplomat speak this bolok would be very interesting reading for those who enjoy this kind of work.
A good read.

Format: Paperback
Ultimate Victory Denied is the tale of suspicious packing crates from China and the aftermath when one of them is opened during transit. The tale involves dock workers, potential thieves, and government officials as suspicions are raised after the Chinese seem eager to get their crates after an accident.

For lovers of military conspiracy novels, this is a solid read with a plausible theory as to how such a major plot could be carried out. The author uses his military experience to build a rich, realistic world full of interesting characters. It also raises the question of how tight national security is, and whether or not such a clever plot to disable us through nuclear devises could be possible.

The book is well written, if a little wordy. It contains mild language in places, some un-politically correct terminology, and a small amount of violence. It may be a little “thick” for more casual readers (the military jargon and diplomatic speak are pretty heavy) but is a decent slow-boiler.

Format: Paperback
Suspenseful story that sure kept my nose to the grindstone, not wanting to put this book down and go to sleep! Relations between The United States and China have not been good for years and Jim Kenfield writes a very plausible story about big trouble between the two nations when China launches an attempt to send rail containerized nuclear weapons to all the strategic areas across the United States. These weapons were supposed to go easily and freely to any place that had strong secrecy in or near the locations. This would have gone well for the Chinese except that in Tacoma, Washington one of the containers happened to have an accident. The local authorities and the FBI were called in to check this damage since it was an international shipment. They "accidentally" broke the seal on the container and discovered some strange contents. This container was so much lighter in weight than almost all other containers so they began checking other containers in this shipment and sure enough, there were many more the same way.

Thus the Chinese terrorism attack was thwarted and awoke the United States as to what China was capable of. All the containers were tracked and all but one was found. The lost one disappeared when a train was derailed in Louisiana and the container fell into the river and even though many hours of searching was done, it was never found due to some crazy kids that made it disappear after thinking they had found a fortune. This started meetings between the United States and Chinese governments. The Chinese, of course, denied any participation of a nuclear attack on the United States but the proof was there. The Chinese blamed it on a certain group of military that planned and carried out this mission without their governments support.
