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
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 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.
