Summary

What if Saddam Hussein...hadn’t stopped with Kuwait?

Project 19 might have worked.

No one knows how close Iraq came to invading Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. They wanted their money, and Saddam wanted revenge. In a world where the USSR ran a lend-lease program with the Iraqis, Saddam felt emboldened.

He’d convince the world that he was just bringing their 19th province back into the fold.

With an oil war going on, the Soviets threw their hats into the ring behind Iraq. If they’d had all the latest in equipment, the 100-hour war wouldn’t be so easily fought.

It could have changed history.

Would the Americans ultimately decide that this was a problem for the Arab nations to work out amongst themselves?

Would the stakes change?

How would Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm have turned out?

You’ll love this alternate-history novel. It’s well-researched and will make you ask what might have been.

Excellent story I cannot wait to hear the next boo

Plausible story and well written! A bit heavy in the details but that makes me appreciate the author’s accuracy. The narrator does miss pronounce some common and obvious military slang.

so stupid!

The authors try desperately to emulate a Tom Clancy techno-thriller. The difference is that Clancy actually knew a lot more than just the names and specs of the equipment involved.

This book is extremely unrealistic in terms of the combat, stresses or geo-politics involved.

The narrator is terrible. Russians and Arabs have the same accent, which is sort of Transylvanian.

Give this one a miss, fellow readers...

Perfect balance

Great alternate history. Great balance of action and historical references. Had you believe it could have all gone down like this with one different decision. Can’t wait for #2!

The Mother of all wars

I was a kid when the first Gulf war occured and was amazed how quickly it was over. In this alternate take things went a bit different.

It feels like a set up for a great mini series and the sad thing is these books always end when you really get pulled in.

Definitely will be awaiting the next book and the books that follow.

FYI - they got ol Bush senior down to the last word.
