It took me a while to get going on book 1 for a variety of reasons, mostly not book related I read on as time permitted My interest and reading momentum accelerated through completion of the series I like the way Mr Watts writes, the way he develops his characters, the plot he develops very interesting entirely possible in this series and the level of detail he provides about both I plan to read his next books as they are published. The War Planners series 1 3, by Andrew Watts.This is a horrifying but plausible story about possible Chinese invasion of the US by rogue elements of the Chinese navy and military What makes it so plausible is the creation of a Red Cell, ostensibly by the CIA, lo create a scenario of China winning, all to help the US military plot a defence strategy.In better times I would have scoffed at this whole scenario, but given what is happening in the US right now with the Russians influencing the elec The War Planners series 1 3, by Andrew Watts.This is a horrifying but plausible story about possible Chinese invasion of the US by rogue elements of the Chinese navy and military What makes it so plausible is the creation of a Red Cell, ostensibly by the CIA, lo create a scenario of China winning, all to help the US military plot a defence strategy.In better times I would have scoffed at this whole scenario, but given what is happening in the US right now with the Russians influencing the election of President Trump, somehow the plot rings true It is also a scary look t how dependent we have become on the Internet, electronic communications and high tech weaponry to defend ourselves, never mind the vulnerability of the world banking system to electronic interference.At various points in the book I had to quit reading because it became too realistic a picture of what is actually happening today There is no doubt that Andrew Watts is plugged in to the US military in various ways, and the sequence of events he sets out in these three books is entirely believable.From a story point of view we follow the exploits of the Manning family, all of whom and involved with the military in one way or another The father is an admiral, the commander of a US carrier strike group His daughter Victoria is a helicopter pilot, the Air boss on a US destroyer His son Chase is involved with Special Operations and the CIA and his youngest son David, is involved with a group developing high tech defences in the telecommunications field.Watt uses their experiences to develop his thesis that the US is in danger from a first strike invasion from China which is using a US war in Iran to divert US attention from its real motives All in all this is a riveting story that comes too close to home for comfort, given the current US president s actions towards China and Russia.At the heart of this story lies money and power, the very two ingredients that lie at the heart of the current US situation If these ingredients are allowed to triumph, I fear for the entire democratic rule of law in the United States and the future of the free world It is all too easy to slip into autocracy and tyranny when the only thing representatives care about is power and money Not to mention the fact that in this story, as in the US today, the system seems riddled with foreign sympathizers and spies who are working covertly to destroy the system Could not get myself into this book no matter how many times I went back to it Listened to the first volume War Planners, but the second was just a lot of conversation to me Sorry Mr Watts, no can do.

the edge of my emotions through the whole ordeal of how those with an unexhausted wealth of money can become despots hell bent on ruling the world in their image I laughed, I cried, and I cheered, and that is what makes this series a must read for any fans of espionage war thrillers of fiction Book 1 The War Planners with David Manning as a kidnapped computer analyst who was previously in the Navy and is held captive on a secluded island with other American s who have been lied to by their US bosses to participate in a think tank to find ways to breach the USA s defense system David comes from a family of Navy personnel that include his Admiral father, brother an ex Navy Seal, and sister who is an ace helicopter pilot Book 2 The War Stage with Chase Manning ex Navy Seal is sent to Dubai on a CIA secret mission, betrayed by another and rescuing his brother are his main concerns Book 3 Pawns of the Pacific with Victoria Manning a Helicopter Boss in the US Navy on the USS Farragut Destroyer extracts her brother Chase from the jungles of Equador in an all out race to get to Panama before being sunk by an enemy and avoiding World War III from breaking out This review has been

language, and I try to stay away from books that have it as much as oossible So when I was reading book one, not only was I completely enthralled, but I thought that the language was going to be minimal, mostly the s word, and not include the F word That was the case until I got into book 2 As for the reading material, the first third of the story was thrilling, edge of your seat spy action I could barely keep myself from skipping ahead to see what was going to happen So for book one, or the first third of the book, I give it five stars Books two and three were, for me, completely different Not only were theseboring, but the language ratcheted up considerably There was so much detail about ships, etc., naval language, and, in many spots, acronym after acronym, making it difficult for me to keep track of what they were talking about I didn t care for book two, or the second third, of the trilogy at all, not caring about what it was about, and thought it was way over drawn out Book three, or the last third of the trilogy, was some better, but I was completely disappointed that they didn t go into detail about the 18 Americans left imprisoned on an island other than to say, at the very end, that they were rescued So a critical part of the continued story was just obliterated by the next aspects of the books I would give the last two thirds of this trilogy two stars, maybe 2.5 for the last, and overall three grudging stars for the entire trilogy If you re a Navy person, I m sure that these books will be right down your alley If you don t mind cursing, then I m sure that they re okay for you But there are ways around cursing that works just fine Don Brown, Joel Rosenberg, and others weave their stories without the bad language, so it can be done, easily I wouldn t have continued the trilogy after getting into the F bombs in book two, but I kept on because I wanted to find out what happened to the 18 Americans This author thoroughly disappointed me in not giving a better ending to that aspect of book one, not continuing their story The War Planner is my first read from author Andrew Watts A well developed, well written story that
