Book Description

China Attacks is an exciting, entertaining, yet informative novel that explores the international politics that may be leading the world to war, describes America's and China's vast military capabilities and plans, and posits a riveting scenario of catastrophic conflict as superpowers collide over the island nation of the Republic of China on Taiwan.

The book is one of a growing genre of China vs. US WW3 books, this time focused on a fictional Chinese invasion of Taiwan in the year 2000. Written by two authors with a solid background on China (if little on fiction), it starts off quite strongly but remains a bit light on up to date military details and sadly finished in an unnecessary hurry.

The book starts with the bombing of the Chinese embassy in Belgrade in 1999, and follows the trajectory of several main characters over the subsequent months (a CIA analyst, a Marine Corps colonel, a US Army Reserve officer and from the Chinese side a special forces colonel and a rising political commissar) - through the build-up to the actual attack on Taiwan.

The book starts off very strongly and the authors' background knowledge on China and it's politics (and their wishes on achieving global hegemony) shows in preparing an interesting 'what if' of how China could have gone about reintegrating Taiwan. The pace is good and the varied perspectives help in keeping the reader riveted.

The first issues become apparent with the invasion proper. In spite of one of the authors having an extensive military background, a lot of the descriptions of the military equipment that would be used by the Chinese in 2000 are quite out of date and not particularly well researched. Here some others (Chimera or Red Tide: The Chinese Invasion of Seattle (Occupied Seattle Book 1)) do a much better job.

The other issue is the frequent use of brackets to describe various military equipment of abbreviations, which breaks the flow of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good start, poor finish 7 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book started well and showed it was written by people who did actually know about the background issues. However, the late middle/end were rushed and not of the same standard. This could have been really good, but ended up as average.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good read let down by poor ending 12 Jan. 2014

Good story but the ending leaves you feeling let down, like it was rushed. Good fast moving plot and character interaction and certainly hard to put down. Just feel it was about 100 pages short to give a more reasonable ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars China Attacks 15 Dec. 2013

I thought it was a bit far fetched, then China announced a few weeks ago it was expanding its zone of air control right in the same area as in the book. Worth reading just to get some idea what "could" happen.

Love this type of book. Written in the same style as an early Tom Clancy 'Red Storm Rising' etc. Plenty of action and not too many characters. There's also a twist in the tail which I didn't expect

If you like Tom Clancy you will enjoy this book. The characters are strong band the scenario is believable. The only criticism is a slightly weak ending.
