    A well informed tale of modern war and weapons Not your standard war or weapons porn. This one is well thought out with believable political and social context along with elements of current news woven throughout. It differs from the usual terror attack novel in that this author takes the time to develop the political and social underpinnings of his plot. That occasionally slows the pace somewhat. But he does return to "movie mode" interweaving the scenes and upping the pace. The author does push A well informed tale of modern war and weapons Not your standard war or weapons porn.

The author does push the weapon descriptions up to almost weapon porn limits but thankfully fails to treat them as magical. The good guys are mostly likeable as are a few of the bad ones. I look forward to reading more in future books.

    Well planned scenarios Ably written with a well thought out end-game. Although for a pleasant change it had none of the too often expected “Good ole US of A” being the main heroes, instead FSB agents were, it was sadly let down by the modern US penchant for describing each item of military equipment, both big and small, in excruciating detail and model number - when will authors realise that the reader does not really care.

    Fans of military fiction will love the detailed descriptions of tanks, drones and warheads. But fans of political thrillers will enjoy the pacing and the story. It reads like a Tom Clancy novel, in that there are numerous characters and lots of moving parts. However, unlike Clancy, there are no side-plots that take a tangent to nowhere. Every person and event described in the book lead directly to the main plot, making this a pretty quick, concise read. I highly recommend this book, especially i Fans of military fiction will love the detailed descriptions of tanks, drones and warheads.

    Detailed Militray Thriller The Saudi Iranian War was another great story by Ted Halsted. I love how he tries his novels together and keeps a saga going that a reader cant wait for his next book. If you love military hardware Ted does a great job describing them and engulfing you into their details. His explanations teach you something while reading this thriller. Great read and cant wait for his next one.

    A techno thriller. Interesting book. Kind of Tom clancy-ish. Not quite as much tech detail but enough for me. (I enjoy the tech). I liked how the Americans were not the mail focus and played a relatively minor role. And how he’s bringing up possibilities of future books.

    Complex and intriguing political, military and economic forces drive a compelling plot. Lots of action among the Qataris, Saudis and Iranians. Very fast paced high tech air armored battles. Loved it.

    Great modern day war novel The author explained many technical issues about the aircraft and armored vehicles in the story. He described territory as if you were there. Really enjoyed the aspect of the conflict that had minimal US involvement.

    If only this book was history The fiction is great. I don’t know anything about tank battles, rockets, drones and helicopters but description are believable. The description of Iranian people and Russian FSB as good people rings true. I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from this author.

    Great read Our favorite Russian agents return for this nail biting thriller. My only minor complaint is that at times the author gets too descriptive with weapons and equipment and it bogs down the story slightly.

    Very well researched. Timely and highly realistic. Great read with suspense amd interviews And right out of today’s newspaper headlines. Could not believe the twists turns and recent news inclusions. IT may be exactly what’s could happen.

    Ripped from the Headlines This is another Tom Clancy / Larry Bond type of techno-thriller. In the near future a resurgent Iran, a weakened Iraq, and a pushy Saudi Arabia could be another flash point. You can see the situation faced by the Saudis; the Saud Family might have been in power for over a hundred years, but they are still controversial as ever. What drew me to this story is that the protagonists are FSB agents! Russians.

In the near future a resurgent Iran, a weakened Iraq, and a pushy Saudi Arabia could be another flash point. You can see the situation faced by the Saudis; the Saud Family might have been in power for over a hundred years, but they are still controversial as ever. What drew me to this story is that the protagonists are FSB agents! Russians. This is not to say the Russians are not watching Iran and Saudi Arabia with interests. Their recent intervention in Syria could be the stepping stone. My only criticism is that I had recently read Dr. Kenneth Pollack's Armies of Sand in which Pollack, another ME military expert, highlighted the deficiencies of Arab armies, including the Saudi Air Force. By and large, Arab armies suffered from operational science deficiencies and lack of tactical initiatives. Thus when you have a battle in the air or ground and the unit commander is killed, they tend to fall to pieces. Somehow, the Sauds, Qataris were "better" than real life, but then, that's called fiction.

    Not your classic technothriller. The storyline is well thought out and plausible, although a bit convoluted. As a result, more than two thirds of the prose is dedicated to setting up the politics and intrigue with less than the later third focused on the armed conflict -- predominantly armored engagements. That said, the descriptions of the engagements were very good, with excellent detail on the disposition, equipment, and tactics of tank-on-tank and air-on-tank warfare.

The author clearly has great expertise in the area of tank warfare but, in truth, I felt the detailed and repetitive discussions about tank rounds distracted from what action was included in the story. Others may enjoy this book -- it was well written and quite believable -- but for me it was just OK.

    Technical but thorough Ted's writing is exciting and thought provoking. He is obviously knowledgeable about tanks. Both his books have been crammed with information about them. I liked it it made it realistic. His featured characters travel to various countries and meet many foreign named people. It takes some concentration to keep track. I longed for some Smith's and Jones to make life a little easier. I thoroughly recommend the two books and look forward to more.

    I liked the storyline of this book, with one reader comparing him to Tom Clancy. The book does start off pretty slow but it picks up when the inevitable conflict happens. The main reason, the two Russian agents, Vasiliyev and Grishkov, could have been more influential but they had a place in the storyline and so on. Overall it's a good read and recommend it to readers who like military thrillers such as Tom Clancy and the like. I liked the storyline of this book, with one reader comparing him to Tom Clancy.

    Entertaining story As previously stated in other reviews, just a little less technical breakdown on the weapons. The story is a entertaining mix of actual events and imaginative fiction. I like the idea of an Iranian government that looks inward instead of outward for fulfillment of its people.

    Enjoyable Read First of all, as the headline states, it was an enjoyable read. It was written from several viewpoints which made it much more interesting. Second, the subject matter was timely and believable. I enjoyed the characters and they were believable in their action. Overall a good book.

    Well written, but slow paced The book, while well written is really slow. The first third of the book was all character building. I like books that jump into action early to grab my interest, before delving into deep character building. Overall I liked the plot and characters, but felt like it would re ad better without so much detail.

    Good idea but.... I liked the idea of this book. I thought parts of it were very good, but it others were so predictable it made me wince. Only my opinion, have a go you might think differently.
