A Novel of the Next World War
Written by two of today's military technology experts, GHOST FLEET is The Hunt for Red October for the next-generation. This visionary thriller describes in chilling details a new world war of the near-21st century, where the battles take place in outer space and cyberspace, by malware and microchips, by drones and ‘bots and remote control.
But there is one ship that narrowly escaped in the battle. Captain Jamie Simmons becomes a hero for leading his ship to safety and is forced to bide his time on the mainland while an older generation of ships, the "ghost fleet," are rehabilitated and made 21st-century battle-ready.
Incorporating clever references to the strategy of Sun Tzu, William Gibson's Neuromancer, and the vision of Star Trek, GHOST FLEET’s thrilling story is based on the authors' knowledge of real-world cutting-edge military developments and technologies. GHOST FLEET tweaks today's technology into next-generation uses that go beyond the wildest dreams of James Bond's Q. Yet as the authors explain in their notes (an unusual feature in a work of fiction), this vision is entirely true.
