Product description

Review

Well where to begin? I'm stunned - really I am - because this book is that good. The book proposes, in utterly believable and impeccably researched terms, a fictional Islamic takeover of British society in the near future. Alden makes us believe that this could actually happen by expertly weaving historical facts, fictional but probable scenarios and utterly believable characters, both real and imaginary. What's most memorable about this book is the bold and sympathetic characters from all sides of the great War; whether it's General Mousi, the fearsome Paratrooper tasked with seizing London and the PM, or the British Brigadier who engages on a cat-and mouse style chase with him through the British countryside, desperately trying to get a most un-Blair like and heroic PM to the safety of the Scottish mountains and the growing resistance movement. I've taken a decision to champion this book because I believe it's one of the most significant title's of our times and one that's been overlooked by the mainstream press and reviewers. I'm utterly astonished that it's not been picked up by a major publisher when it clearly warrants and deserves the support of a giant like Pan or Corgi. This is a superb text that could have been written by a Frederick Forsythe or Robert Ludlum. My only criticism is that Alden makes a few minor technical errors on tactics and equipment - but what the hell, we all do - even the so-called experts, so again it's a minor sin in an otherwise mammoth and heroic piece of work. --Steven McLaughlin, Author of Squaddie: A Soldier's Story Mainstream Publishing

This book moves you through it at pace. Tight language, easily digestible scenarios which evolve into a tense plotline that can be believed. I barrelled through this book in about two days, purely because it is so well written. Enjoyable to a fault, it takes you to where the plot plays out and you can visualise the development of each phase. This is the work of someone who understands global trends, campaign management and, above all, the intricacies that can unravel even the most carefully put together plan. Alden writes well and tells it without xenophobic rancour or ideological bent. The Arab spring is mentioned as the start of the unification, the credit crunch referenced as the cause of our long lasting economic woes. There are indicators that could provide the opportunity, as long as the Chinese aren't too powerful too soon, the Russians find their gas supplies are finite and the Americans revert to their isolationist policies. Overall, this is a great read and one to enjoy. Of course I wouldn't want to end on a negative point but you better carry another book with you as you will finish this very quickly, as it's written very well and you don't want to put it down. --ARRSE Army Rumour Service, The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.
