"Foreign and Domestic" chronicles a new American revolution in which the enemy turns out to be those most likely to take freedom for granted - Americans. Mannske has created a compelling American paradox wrapped inside a warp-speed firefight. I don't read a lot of novels but I stayed up two nights to finish this one.
The book is about the US-UN War. Far fetched?
It is Book 2 of a trilogy and Books 1 and 3 have not been written yet. Odd?
Ask George Lucas.
I have to admit that it took me several chapters to wrap my brain around the author's concept of a near fiction war between the US and the UN, but the further one goes into the story, the easier the idea is to accept.
The thing which makes this all work for me is that Michael Mannske can flat out write. His characters come alive, his scenarios become plausable and his knowledge of the military gives the book an authenticity that near fiction and science fiction need in order to remain plausible.
Mannske says in the Afterword that he wrote this book because he was bored. That he wanted to escape the post 9/11 world and be "mesmerized again by cataclysmic clashes and superpower showdowns...where military strategies are brought to life and age old SIOP [Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol] war plans dusted off and tested in the crucible of the imagination."
The crucible of this author's imagination is white hot. If you are looking for a book that is not boring and quite mesmerizing, Foreign and Domestic is just the ticket. I promise you it will make you think and probably keep you up later than is good for you. It did me.
Can't wait for the rest of this triology - how could the UN get this power and how do we regain it? Hope Mannske doesn't make us wait very long. It's a sure-fire movie hit - heads up on this one Hollywood!
