5.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps too close to reality...., 31 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fall of Night (Kindle Edition)
Despite many typos, misspellings, and grammatical errors, this book held me all the way through. The story, set in the near future, concerns Russia's aim to re-create the Soviet Union and include in it the whole of Western Europe. NATO has collapsed due to in-fighting between the EU and USA, British-US relationships are at an all-time low, and the bloated EU administration has continued to waste money on self-serving projects and ridiculous pipe-dreams while letting the European military run down to incapability. The story, told from several different viewpoints, describes how the Russians launch surprise attacks and steamroller across Europe, and then attempt to invade Britain. The ending was unexpected (not going to give it away), but realistic, and in the words of the old saying, there are no "old bold heroes". All in all, a good read which worryingly may not be too far from the truth given the current political situation in Crimea and the domestic issues mentioned in the book's Amazon description. I don't know whether the author plans a sequel, but if so, it should be worth reading.
