Anyone who enjoys alternative modern history will enjoy this. A combination of Andy McNab and General Sir John Hackett. Read the first two in more or less one sitting - spread over two days - and cannot wait for the third installement. I am a very fast reader so - these are proper sized novels. Hopefully there will be some some sequels as well.

You need to read "STAND TO" before you read this book,
I have the same comments as my review of "stand to" BUT this book needs a bit of proof reading.

If the author needs a volunteer to proof read the next one I'm your man if it means I can get it early, cannot wait to read it.

Excellent read, but a word of caution this series of books is just one great long story so you get hooked in to buying the next and the next etc. However, high quality and totally believable scenario of East v West World war. Just load up your kindle and take a cruise holiday!

I'm a 22 year ex-military NCO and would have been right in the middle of all this had it happened (god forbid that it ever does) and I think the author has done a superb and imaginative job of telling a story that fortunately remains conjecture (the warplans wouldn't outlast the first contact). The scenarios are probably as accurate as we could guess them to be and his attention to detail is very impressive, also I'm very impressed that it's not all about how the Americans would win world war 3 but shows the efforts that would be made by many nations to protect themselves and others at such a time, and shows that the enemy can have a face and humanity as well. I'm only part way through the series but would recommend it to anyone who wants a ground level view of such an appalling possibility

I a totally hooked on this series of books and am just catching up on my reviews having already finished volumne 3!

Here we have another great piece of writting from Andy, who just gets better in my opinion. Great plot and sub-plots link up well.

At least I already had V3 when I finished "advance to contact," so I wasn't left frustrated!! Just wish V4 was out already because I'm champing at the bit now. Can't say more without spoiling V3 for others.

Having read "Chieftains" and "Red Storm Rising" I can't fault Andy's work(aside from proof reading), despite his obvious political leaning! His style of writing is very engaging especially for an ex-soldier and police officer like myself who enjoys this genre of books.

Enjoyable series, well written, good story line Characters are excellent. Good mixing of the 82nd airbourne with a UK regiment, but would like more involvement with other regiments ,than just the cold stream guards

Surpasses Clancy's Red Storm Rising, a real roller coaster ride. Could not put it down and I have now read all 5 books. Just one niggle. The quality of the maps is very poor and virtually impossible to read.

I'm not a fully paid up member of the Apostrophe Police but I'm afraid that the lack of proof reading and editing in this, the second of the series, following hard on the heels of the also lacking first book has put me off buying any more.

My Victor Meldrew moment over - what about the story?

I'd say it takes up where Tom Clancy left off - big cast of characters, up to date storylines, lots of action - a true Ripping Yarn - take two or three of the series on holiday as they are the sort of book you do not want to put down (if you can rise above the grammar - the killer for me was a mistake on the last page 'sort-after'?? ).

Storey moves along at a griping pace & puts you with the characters.

Each separate storey line is a great read in themselves but combined outstanding.
