Kurzbeschreibung

In the aftermath of a series of student riots in Seoul, the U.S. Congress rushes a bill into law calling for the complete withdrawal of American troops from South Korea. This sets off a chain reaction: North Korea attacks across the DMZ, Russia supports North Korea, the Chinese remain neutral, and the United States fights again alongside its South Korean allies. The full range of ground, air, and naval forces take part in vicious combat, first to hold off the North Korean onslaught, then drive them back.


“A direct hit! The techno-thriller has a new ace, and his name is Larry Bond.”
-Tom Clancy

“Displays a Knowledge of modern weaponry and war that can only be described as state-of-the-art.”
-Stephen Coonts, best-selling author of Final Flight

“Fast, furious, and powerfully realistic. A stunning scenario of modern war.”
-W.E.B Griffin, bestselling author of Brotherhood of War

Red Phoenix is a shocking new chapter of a tragic disaster that might very well stun the world by becoming a reality. Larry Bond has proven himself a master of master of military adventure.”
-Clive Cussler, bestselling author of Treasure

Exciting, realistic, hard-hitting! I predict great things for Red Phoenix.”
-Dale Brown, bestselling author of Flight of the Old Dog

“A superb storyteller. Bond seems to know everything about warfare.”
- New York Times Book Review

“Harrowingly real and persuasive.”
- New York Newsday

Gripping … masterfully accurate … Mr. Bond is in complete command.”
- Baltimore Sun

“Bond clearly knows what he’s doing. Submarine warfare, dogfights in the air, and combat in the trenches are handled with authority and accuracy.”
- San Francisco Chronicle

“He sets a new standard for the techno-thriller.”
- Orlando Sentinel

“Highly readable … the drama is compelling … the characters are believeable.”
- San Diego Tribune

“The action is intense … You’ll enjoy Red Phoenix.”
- United Press International

5.0 von 5 Sternen As good as Clancy's early books 26. Juli 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Larry Bond collaborated with Clancy on Red Storm and he has obviously picked up Clancy's style for the military techno genre. In short, the book was very exciting, detailed, militarily accurate and balanced a number of subplots with equal excitement. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for anyone who enjoyed the early Clancy and Coontz type books. This was my first Bond book and I guarantee it wont be the last.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really good book about the next korean war. 20. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a really interesting book, and it is well written and well thought out. The plot makes sense and the story is very interesting. Do not read on if you have not read the book. There were a few problems with the book when the author tried to make it seem plausible that the US would impose trade sanctions on korea. First of all, the Korean economy had a major account trade deficit at least until the recent financial crisis(I haven't checked the last two years of data). In fact, korea had a multi-billion dollar per year trade deficit with the United States for a long time. So that was one mistake the author made. Just because korea sits between Japan and China doesn't mean that it enjoyed a huge trade surplus with the US. Of course, there are more trade barriers in korea than there should be, but it's a lot less than any other country in the entire area. Secondly, the author says that cutting off trade between korea and the US would have minimal consequences as though korea were some tiny economy. Compared to the American economy, yes, but in 1995, South Korea had the 11th largest GDP in the world. They currently produce the highest technology DRAM chips, and korean firms compete more with Japaneese firms than they do with American firms. Despite being a great book, there were thus some errors in economic data in the book. Other than that, a few items were missing from the US military inventory, such as M1 Abrams tanks, Bradley APCs, MLRS, Cobras and Apaches, F-177 & B2 bombers, land-attack cruise missles, etc. Also, South Korea has its own F-16 manufacturing ability and produces it own major war ships and tanks which are supposed to be much better than the M60. None of these were mentioned in the book. Despite these things, the book is still well worth reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Excellent Read: Full of Blood and Political Intrigue 23. Dezember 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
As a Korean, and a Political Science student in college, I must say that his knowledge of politics of the two Koreas are very accurate, and realistic. A superb mix of military hardware, blood and gore, and international relations, but with a flawed strategic thinking.
The story begins with the political upheaval in South Korea, following the discovery of a North Korean tunnel, and the consequent border clash between the ROKs and the NKPAs. A highly placed North Korean agent within the South Korean internal security apparatus manipulates the police into firing M-16 rifles indiscriminately at the crowds during a riot-control operation. A superb description of the riot scene, and the consequent political turmoil triggered by it, is to be commended here. This is THE trademark of his novel.

The police massacre in Seoul triggers off an economic sanction by a few Congressmen who wish to humble the economic might of their trading partner. A group of ROK generals, fed up with the political and economic turmoils following the police massacre and the consequent economic sanction, attempt a coup against the incumbent administration. But their attempts are thwarted at inception by the clever American commander of the theater, and the ROK JCS Chairman. What follows is a witch-hunt of the ROK officer corps, thus rendering the ROKs demoralized, and combat-ineffective.

Kim Jong Il, taking advantage of the political turmoil south of the border, plans a full-scale invasion of the South with the aid of the Soviet advisers. (Note that the book was written in 1989, during the Cold War.) The NKPA commandos paralyze the crucial strategic targets in South Korea, while the joint US-ROK forces are tied up at DMZ by waves of NKPA blitzkrieg attacks.
