Larry Bond is a former naval officer and warfare analyst. He collaborated with Tom Clancy on RED STORM RISING and has written several more techno-thrillers since the success of RED PHOENIX. He also designs war games and is widely regarded as an expert in that field.From Library Journal:
Set in today's South Africa, this broad, elaborate war thriller by the author of Red Phoenix (Warner, 1989) has Nazi-like ultraconservative Afrikaners taking over the Pretoria government, then invading bordering Namibia. A Communist counterforce led by Cubans is mounted, as internal revolt and harsh suppression breed domestic chaos. A Boer nuclear attack on the Cubans is answered with nerve gas; only heavy commitments of U.S. and British forces restore order after much battling and destruction. The love interest involves an American TV journalist and a free-spirited daughter of one of the Afrikaner leaders. In the wake of Desert Storm this knowledgeable evocation of the spectacle of modern weaponry and international conflict will reward new and old admirers of military action. A $150,000 advertising budget should ensure interest among those drawn to this genre. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 2/1/91.
