Aka D.C. Poyer.
DAVID CHARLES POYER was born in DuBois, PA in 1949. He grew up in Brockway, Emlenton, and Bradford, in western Pennsylvania, and graduated from Bradford Area High School in 1967. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis in 1971, and later received a master’s degree from George Washington University.
After the United States suffers a devastating nuclear attack and is facing food shortages, power outages, cyber and AI assaults, and a wrecked economy, Admiral Dan Lenson leads an allied force assigned to turn the tide of war in the Pacific, using precisely targeted missiles and high-tech weapons systems.
But as the campaign begins, the entire Allied military and defense network is compromised by Jade Emperor, a powerful Chinese artificial-intelligence system that seems to anticipate and counter every move.
While Dan strives to salvage the battle plan, his wife helps coordinate strategy in DC, Marine sergeant Hector Ramos fights in an invasion of Taiwan, and Navy SEAL master chief Teddy Oberg begins a desperate journey into central China on a mission that may be the only way to save the United States from destruction and defeat.
Thrilling, filled with near-future technology, and deeply grounded in the human cost of war, Deep War is a brilliant novel by an acknowledged master of military fiction.
David Lightcap: The author writes a story so complying that you want to rush to the ending only to want more. Every step in the action is fully charged and detailed that you feel like you are part of the action. Every character links to a piece of the whole series making you route for the person and worry that something bad will befall them.
Looking forward to the next segment of the story and having read the series since the first book love the main character for always doing his best for the mission and troops working with him.
Ted: It’s pretty difficult to call this a “Dan Lenson” novel. Lenson appears in less than 25 of the pages in the entire book. This series started more than 30 years ago. Who knew it would get to the point where the reader needs to have advanced degrees in computer science/artificial intelligence to understand what the hell is going on? Far too many subplots. Far too technical. What next? A Death Star? I miss the old seagoing Lenson.
A “Thank you” would be nice!
