several conversations they had together and the project seemed to come together easily.They also talked about their favorite character in the book And while there are many amazing, strong, courageous men and women, I have to go with Mark s choice of Paulina A 20 year old Polish bad ass who completely transformed during her various roles.I also really enjoyed the characters of Apollo, Glitter, and Shank There were so many amazing players in this story, it was hard to choose just a few Lt Col Dan Connolly definitely stands out as well as Griggs.This is the type of book that you would probably want to read than once With so much action and activity scattered throughout the world, it s hard to absorb every nuance of this incredible novel.Red Metal offers an amazing insight at what World War III would look like today This book was intense and so addicting, it was difficult to set it aside But I found I had to because it was almost an obsession of just one chapter Definitely a powerful

follow the carefully orchestrated and brilliant Russian plot to simultaneously strike Western Europe, Taiwan, and East Africa with the goal of taking over several Rare Earth mineral mines in Africa that they believe will give the Russians control over America if not the West Told through the eyes of different parties, each involved in different ways a Polish civilian warrior who has barely enough training to fire her weapon, two Russian commanders one eager to make his mark and the other fearful of what a world war will do to his beloved Rodina, an almost retired French Intelligence Officer and his son who just happen upon clues that they can t resist but to follow, two American Intelligence Officers who try valiantly to get their American agencies to take the series of seemingly disconnected clues seriously The events seem far flung but in the fullness of the story, come together to create a top notch geopolitical thriller.The detail of the Naval war strategies is impressive, thorough, and believable Like this The carrier strike group used submarines as its outer most ring to serve as the eyes and ears of the task force by venturing out from the CSGs to find enemy shipping The next ring was an array of frigates The workhorse of the fleet, they screened for enemy submarines If Greaney and Rawlings weren t sitting at the elbow of the officers in charge of America s Pacific Fleet, they should be that s how consuming the facts are It takes a while to determine who the main character s is are, if there is even one or two I become so vested in all of the characters, they could all be the protagonist I must confess, I ve read all of Greaney s Gray Man novels, always know that Gray Man is the operator no matter what is happening in the story or where in the world I am This is different.Let me close with a high recommendation If you loved Tom Clancy s iconic war novels, this is a perfect story for you Not just the incredible detail and depth of knowledge but the

combat experience in the most dangerous, most feared fighting force on the planet Together, they combined their talents to pen the best Military Thriller ever Red Metal is a completely accurate and detailed in what I imagine war with Russia would be like Gone are the days of the insurgents in the middle east Now, a new enemy approaches, one that wears a uniform, does not hide behind innocent men, women, and children One that can match our arsenal and technologies pound for pound This is what Red Metal is all about.The issue with Russia starts a few years back, a Special Forces Spetsnaz Commander, Colonel Yuri Borbikov is in Africa ready to fight to take this rare metal mine from any force that stands in his way A Mine Russia discovered, purchased, and developed This mine contains 60% of the world s known supply of essential minerals and would give Russia a much needed upper hand in its dwindling economy among world super powers However, politicians thousands of miles away negotiate a peace agreement and Colonel Borbikov and his Spetsnaz soldiers are ordered to vacate, leaving the mine with their tails between their legs This enrages the Colonel and he vows to come back and claim this land for the Rodina, motherland He spends the next few years coming up with the plan to do just that, spending his own money, time and resources to come up with a bold plan Impressed with his plan and forced to make drastic moves to cling to power, Russian President, President Anatoly Rivkin summons his two most feared and respected Generals and tasks them with this mission, ROBATA KRASNYY METALL, Operation Red Metal The one designed by the Special Forces Colonel The first part of this operation was to weaken US leadership and command in PACOM, they did this by creating a scandal between two highly placed officers From there, two waves of attacks waged on two different continents.First wave led by Russian Colonel General Eduard Sabaneyev, his mission is to take his army through Poland and into Germany On their way, they are to kill and destroy anything in their way The plan called for strategic hacking of NATO computers, the destruction of their low orbit satellites, which disabled all advanced communications and GPS All of this, right before Christmas when majority of NATO troops were on holiday leave.The second wave led by Colonel General Boris Lazar crossed the vast desert of Iran in what looked like a joint exercise between the two nations From there, his army boarded container ships and floated into Africa Once they got there, they gathered their equipment and troops and started for the mine in Kenya At this point, one Marine Corps Regiment was all that stood in the way of the advancing superior Russian Army The battles fought here were epic, many times I felt as if I was watching a movie or better yet, in those trenches with those Marines The up close battles fought here, with tanks, artillery, air support, machine guns, carbine rifles, even at one point hand to hand combat was utilized The excitement and stress the battles created are depicted so well, the amount of death, chaos, portrayed in Red Metal is enough to create a healthy fear of just what World War Three would look like if these pages Mark Greaney and LtCol Rawlings put together came to be true.Couple of things that caught my eye in Red Metal was the accuracy of life in the Marine Corps and the Military in general, one tiny bit of detail which stood out due to the fact that I experienced it many times as a Marine, is the constant hammering of ensuring all the troops did certain annual requirements which we called PME, Professional Military Education My Staff Sergeant would always ask me to make sure my squad is PME complete This list includes many types of training and education such as, annual rifle qualification, the gas chamber, Physical Fitness Test Combat fitness test, as well as medical evals and such The example that stuck with me in Red Metal is a commander telling his troops to ensure everyone gets their flu shot so as not to get on the director s shit list While a very small example, the term shit rolls downhill comes to mind Imagine a battalion commander gets a phone call that some random Lance Corporal in the Battalion missed his dental appointment, and from that point on, everyone in his chain of command under that commander receives an ass chewing Another completely different scenario which stood out to me was customs and mannerisms which are common in European countries were so well researched and its evident that much thought had been put into every detail of this book, from the fighting to this specific example of two close Polish friends who had a custom to kiss each other on both cheeks before speaking whenever they saw each other I ve personally traveled to Europe many times and can attest to this custom.Red Metal illustrates a type of war the US Military has not seen since WWII Our latest wars, fighting the insurgency in the middle east whose best weapon is an IED While Red Metal has US and NATO forces fighting against a battle tested hardened soldiers with coordinated artillery strikes, air raids, cyberwarfare, and naval support The 600 plus pages of Red Metal never get boring, never gets dull, each page forces you to the next one, each battle is life or death for the characters you get to know so well, whether it s a Russian, a German, Polish, French or American You get to know them, you learn their story and at times it feels like you re there with them From a cockpit of the A 10 Warthog American fighter jet, to Russian Su 57 stealth fifth generation jet, to the trenches the Marines have dug, the pilot seat of an attack helicopter, a submarine commander, or the inside of a tank as they re sending death down range This military thriller is an absolute must read, you will NOT be disappointed flag 6 likesLike see review Jul 23, 2019 Michael Houtz rated it it was amazing I

this war will occur in the Pacific Ocean against China, especially after the Chinese begin to interfere in Taiwanese politics in an attempt to reunify the island nation with the mainland As Chinese troops gather just outside of Taiwan and the United States military is rocked by a debilitating scandal, hardly anyone is expecting a move from Russia.Since the end of the Cold War, Russia has been in an economic decline, and it desperately requires access to various advanced resources to remain a world power An ambitious Russian colonel has come up with a complex plan to secure a vital Rare Earth mine that has the potential to secure the country s future Launching a high speed and ruthlessly coordinated attack as Christmas falls, Russian forces stream across the border into Europe, crippling NATO and cutting the continent off from the United States As America and NATO attempt to work out the extent of Russia s plans in Europe and counter them, they are left distracted from Russia s true goal as a second Russian army is secretly heading towards the African coast in order to reach the mine in Kenya.As Russia continues its advance, the fate of the free world lies in the hands of several different individuals In Washington, a veteran Marine Lieutenant Colonel and his colleagues attempt to decipher the Russian strategy before it is too late, while in Africa, a wily old French Intelligence agent and his Special Forces son must uncover why undercover Russian agents are abroad in Djibouti In Europe, a mixture of unprepared NATO soldiers, including a young member of the Polish militia, an out of his depth American tank commander and a high flying US pilot must fight against the odds to push back against the invading Russian force As epic battles erupt across several

    Taking place on a global scale, you ll find the characters constantly absorbed in a race against time strategy Tracking the stories of several individuals you receive some insight as to the characters themselves, however, I d say the majority of the writing focuses on the engagements unveiling of the plans set into action by the superpowers of the world.

    This opened me up to military thrillers, and I will certainly be looking to find books in a similar realm that are as engaging as this book was.

Storm Rising, Red Phoenix, Team Yankee and other compelling, European land based military incursion adventures, Red Metal goes beyond the expected The book begins a few years earlier when Spetsnaz Colonel Yuri Borbikov is forced to withdraw in humiliation from a mine he has been holding in Kenya Proud beyond the norm, he plans revenge on the West He is but one of than a dozen individuals we will follow through the course of this action packed book, each character bringing their own humanity to what is the inhuman act of war The years pass and the President of Russia calls on his top two generals and visits on them an outrageously bold plan for resuming the Rodina s place in the world order One General is to strike like a stiletto into the heart of Germany through Poland The other, experienced general, has a greater, even bold mission He is to recapture the glory of the past in one other bold strike Together, with their armies, the pair will neutralize the West s satellite communications, leaving NATO in the dark and silent All this and China is threatening Taiwan with military action if the results of an up coming election does not go the mainland s way Don t think too long on the political reality of this situation or you may wonder who in their right mind would authorize this madness Rather, go with the flow, follow the battlefield methods laid out by Rawlings with than 22 years experience in commanding Marines in all situations and Greaney The action is intense, the emotions real, and the National Pride that comes into play will have you cheering for the citizen soldiers who try to defend their country against the evil invaders Even at over 600 pages this is a quick read The plot pulls you in, the characters will carry you through, and the action never stops Like the other books in Mr Greaney s growing library, this is a very good read I won this book through flag 5 likesLike see review Apr 15, 2019 Sandra rated it it was amazing review of

complex characters Greaney has breathed life into He is a masterful writer who brings his reader into the thick of battle and before you know it, you can almost smell the fear and sweat and yes, even the blood This richly plotted story is timely and chillingly relevant, especially in light of current geo political stirrings The obvious worry is the distinct possibility of a similar scenario in

blackout in Europe so an attack can be accomplished by Russia As the story unfolds we see that Russia has than one reason for this incredible act of aggression.The book has a large number of situations in the European battles taking place on multiple fronts with many groups of characters, all over just a few days The action is hectic with each strategy or action being described in detail After so much of this I began to feel I really needed to read just one chapter where everybody wasn t firing thousands of rounds of ammunition When the attention of the story turns to Africa it s the same thing over again but in that case the emphasis is on the mines where the rare earth minerals are and there is only one location involved.This will be a good fit for readers who want action all the time For me, well, I would have liked character development so that I actually cared about at least one them.Thank you to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing Group for an e Galley of this novel flag

accurate, up to date if not a bit in the future gtg military fiction novel in the EXACT genre of Tom Clancy s Red Storm Rising or the Hunt for Red October I haven t seen a book that spans the globe, gets the military details down as accurately, or is as exciting a novel as this since then Most just cannot pack the realism, suspense, dram and character development I have wanted to see in a military novel in quite some time The characters are fun, engaging and react in real time in a very realistic manner 5 stars for this awesome book and thanks to Mark Greaney for his excellent Grey Man
