Modern day WW3 books?

Anyone recommend any good modern day WW3 books? I'm really looking for a book about an invasion of America told from a military point of view. By I can't seem to find any


Thanks!!

A Red Dawn book, hum. I can't say that I've read any. I've read a few WW III books from the 70's/80's, but nothing since then. Red Storm Rising by Tom Clancey was a pretty good WW III book, but it was set in Europe. I thought that The Ten Thousand by Coyle was pretty good, as well, but that was also set in Europe.

There was a pretty good war game back in the 70's with everyone ganging up on the US. I think it was called Invasion USA.

Invasion Alaska by Vaughn Heppner.
Quote:
The invasion of Alaska has begun. And the Third World War may not be far behind.

In this controversial book, Vaughn Heppner explores the theme of a shattered America facing the onslaught of the new colossus in the East: Greater China.

The time is 2032, and the Chinese are crossing the polar ice and steaming through the Gulf of Alaska. They have conquered oil-rich Siberia and turned Japan into a satellite state. Now a new glacial period has begun, devastating the world’s food supply. China plans to corner the world’s oil market and buy the needed food for their hungry masses.

A weakened America uses old technology against the next generation of military hardware. The invasion unleashes the Hell of battle as two armies turn the snowfields of Alaska red with blood.

INVASION: ALASKA is a thundering techno-thriller of vast scope, written by bestselling author Vaughn Heppner

If you want a chilling non-fiction read, try Red Star Rogue by Kenneth Sewell. It's a scarey description of the sinking of the submarine, K-129 just off Hawaii and how evidence points to the fact a rogue KGB crew on the sub was attempting to launch a nuclear missile at Pearl Harbor. Very fast and sobering read.

Try "Invasion" by Eric L. Harry.

Amazon's blurb:
No foreign army has ever set foot on American soil. Until now. After years of peace, China has awakened.
Slowly, it has grown in power, extending its sphere of influence beyond the Asian continent.
Now, it has launched a final assault against the only possible obstacle to world domination... The United States of America.


I liked it.

The British marched on Washington and burned the White House and other public buildings in 1814. They were also there, obviously, during the War of Independence. Whoever wrote the blurb needs to hit the history books (or Wikipedia).
