Ghost Fleet: A Novel of the Next World War

If you want to know what America’s generals and admirals (and colonels, captains and majors) were reading last summer, this is it: a Tom Clancyesque technothriller about a future war between the U.S. and China. It’s a classic page-turner – not great literature, but a fun read with a bonus: endnotes that document the real-world technologies it describes. The authors are a leading scholar of military technology and a former defense reporter, so they know what they’re writing about.
