SHATTERED TRIDENT by Larry Bond
Think a Naval War In The China Seas Could Be Contained ?
Think again,this book is on our must read before the end of Fall list. It came out in May and we apologize for overlooking it, it should have been in your beach bag. If you have been following our blog post series titled "HOW FAR WILL THE DRAGON SWIM ?", you will have a lot of understanding of the background to this corking work of naval fiction. If you have not been following our series and read this book you will painlessly receive enough background on the real world situation that you will be able to join our series and not be lost at any point in the near future. This is a book that takes you right into the heart of darkness that we have been describing for over a year. It gives the reader a gripping what if tale of a war that no one wants but everyone seems powerless to stop.
What if the Philippines and Japan lost faith in the willingness or ability of the United States to live up to our defense agreements?
What if China made another move on Vietnam such as the ruthless murder of Vietnamese sailors depicted here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy2ZrFphSmc
What if Vietnam, the Philippines and Japan formed a secret alliance to stop Chinese aggression without American participation.
What if this alliance began to sink ships secretly in order to reduce China's oil supply and damage but not destroy her economy in the hope of dealing China's leadership a new set of problems in the hopes that they would back off their naval powered island land grab?
What if China discovered who was responsible for their lost tankers?
What would the U.S. do if the President decided that the best course of action was to conduct our own secret submarine war to insure that warfare remained naval and no real winners or losers emerged?
Far fetched? We would say its as real as today's headlines but our national media is paying scant attention to the situation, there are virtually no headlines....except here ...in our series HOW FAR WILL THE DRAGON SWIM?
We highly recommend this fast paced adventure tale as not only entertaining but painlessly instructive on what may be the most important issue of peace or war of the current event horizon.
