I am something of a grammar and spelling fiend and I found the regular mistakes in these three volumes irritating. That said it was not enough to detract from my overall enjoyment of the story.

I won't comment on the probability of the events portrayed actually taking place. I would have to leave that to a foreign affairs expert but the story was compelling and sufficiently believable to be able to just enjoy the ride. The chief protagonist is a complex and well-reasoned character and I personally had a love/hate relationship with him and his ideology which set the tone for the rest of the book imagining the relationship that he must have had with the electorate, his party and the wider world.

All in all, a good read

Probably the best WWIII fiction I've ever read.

From the outset this tale is loaded with endless intrigue, compelling political, military and personal scenarios which intertwine with slick precision, and an overriding sense of drama that never loses pace. If you're a fan of the genre then this really is the end of the line, I can't see me ever finding anything to rival it other than Eric L. Harry's Arc Light, and even that is a close run thing. My only hope is that Yoshida releases some more titles of equal quality.

I read this with a macabre fascination at how incredibly bad it was. It is naive, simplistic, militarily it is laughable and the politics ludicrous. The number of mistakes in the writing shows that it has never been proof read.

HASH(0x9eef5990) out of 5 stars Interesting, attention-grabbing narrative "future history" that seems closer to reality than fantasy. 26 Sept. 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Not full of the typos that often litter the pages of many new writer's works on Kindle, and really more like a 4.25; I would have given it 5 stars if it had had that extra something that makes a book an irresistible page-turner.

I see that some reviewers of the individual books in this trilogy--collected here under one roof--see it as a fantasy, a conservative wet dream. However, as someone who has had some decades experience working on the kinds of national defense and foreign affairs issues that are the subject of this book, I found the various scenarios presented to be plausible--perhaps even quite plausible, and the motivations and actions of the major actors in line with past historical events, and the headlines in today's newspapers.

Despite being fairly long and a "narrative," this work held my attention, I found it very interesting, and I found the political dynamic, and the actions posited for a very conservative American President--hard-nosed, unapologetic about America, and not hesitant at all about asserting our national interests, able to quickly and decisively make very hard decisions, and not hesitant to resort to harsh measures if need be--to be reasonable and not just the stuff of fantasy. After all, that is how several Presidents in our past operated during periods of existential crisis for the United States.

HASH(0x9ec7cb94) out of 5 stars Liked the idea; hated the writing 4 July 2013
By scifiman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The idea intrigued me and the actual implementation was good. The writing was atrocious, however. Didn't the author re-read his own writing? Didn't he have someone else proof it? Toward the end, there were so many gramatical, editing and style errors, all I wanted to do was get through it! I am not sure I would ever buy another by this author!

HASH(0x9f270768) out of 5 stars Incredible eye-opener 21 Aug. 2013
By David M. Little - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The political background provided in the story make the war very believable. For many years, Tom Clancy's "Red Storm Rising" was my favorite novel and I've reread it many times. This novel is on the same level in the research and writing (if not in the editing). The only stretch was the introduction of a Reaganesque SDI weapon, but since it was not the ultimate war-ender by itself, that wasn't a problem for me. Am really eager for more from this author.

HASH(0x9eb531bc) out of 5 stars Lots of action and destruction, but there are countries which survive. 3 Mar. 2014
By James Bonhamton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The reader will learn a great deal about the distribution of power in the world and a possible scenario. Combat includes nuclear weapons, missiles, air-to-air and ground, submarines, battleships, smaller craft, and foot soldiers. Today's voters should know much of the content in order to judge better. The human elements are believable and the situations are tense with much intelligence gathering.

HASH(0x9ec3c300) out of 5 stars Could have been pulled from today's headlines 25 July 2013
By Lawrence K Cash - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Very interesting read. The topic was quite contemporary with issues we are currently facing in today's world. The idea that at the end of the day it was the US and UK against the rest of the world was an interesting take. However some of the assumptions in the scenario were not plausible and would have led to a much more violent end.
