Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Gray Man series comes a startlingly realistic novel of World War III. 

A desperate Kremlin takes advantage of a military crisis in Asia to simultaneously strike into Western Europe and invade east Africa in a bid to occupy three rare Earth mineral mines that will give Russia unprecedented control over the world's hi-tech sector for generations to come. 

Pitted against the Russians are a Marine lieutenant colonel pulled out of a cushy Pentagon job, a French Special Forces captain and his intelligence operative father, a young Polish partisan fighter, an A-10 Warthog pilot, and the commander of an American tank platoon who, along with his German counterpart, fight from behind enemy lines. 

Through grand land, sea, and air battles to a small unit fighting hand-to-hand in the jungle, Russia and the US face off in a terrifying but thrilling battle for world dominance - with constant the threat of a Russian nuclear detonation ever present.

Excellent listen!

This is the best military audiobook I have listened to in a long time. It is rare for a military audiobook to get down into detail and strategy, and also have an excellent plot. This audiobook delivers. I just wish I could have listened to this audiobook on a cross country drive instead of to and from work.

Russkies Go Home

If you like fictional "What If" war stories such as Tom Clancy's RED STORM RISING or SWORDPOINT,.....................
A good story teller Mark Greaney combines with an expert Military advisor Lieutenant Colonel Hunter Ripley Raulings USMC to create a real page turner of a Military novel. Could it happen ?? Maybe....Maybe not.But if it did [or something like it] the tactics and state of the art weapons systems could be utilized as described.
In a nutshell that and a great story is it's appeal. In fact there is so much there I will listen to it again in a few weeks and enjoy it just as much. Listening to Red Metal for 21 hours and 21 minutes.it seemed to pass very quickly.
Probably more of a guy book but there are strong believable female warrior characters for women that might enjoy a good Tom Clancy novel. This would make for a Great Beach book.

Outstanding! Worth waiting for!

Mark Greaney is already at the top of authors of espionage thrillers. With this long and very complex military thriller he excels with a different genre. Setting up the various parts of RED METAL requires some time, but the listener should stick with the book to be rewarded by an outstanding novel. Marc Vietor's narration is superb.

A true heir to Tom Clancy.

In the tradition of Clancy's early novels. The story reflects the detail and flavor of modern war/politics.

The narrator is very good

I understand that this type of book will be like this. All shooting, blowing up, killing whatever.
I think the author does a good job, but it is really a lot of hours of the same thing. I need more story, I guess. I let this book run through the whole thing, but all the battles are the same, so 3 hours later, that is still going on. 21 hrs .....and the narrator is still on a roll

Multiple story lines

A bit hard to get attached to most characters as so many things happening at once

aweful

Of all the books I have listened to this will be my first review. it was just so bad. i was so excited too after listening to all the gray man series. it's not like I didn't really give it a try. I made it through the first 8 hours. painfully. the story is so painstakingly detailed it is more like reading an encyclopedia. and the performance is probably worse than the story. his cadence is so irritating. he talks clearly then always goes into this rough sounding voice and ends with a weird uptick as if asking a question. nonstop. every sentence. I have never quit a book, even though a few I wanted to....this one was just too much for me to handle.

Echoes of Clancy and Coyle

No spoilers. This is a good military techno thriller. If you enjoyed Clancy’s Red Storm Rising or Coyle’s Sword Point or Team Yankee you’ll enjoy this book.

Nur fuer Militaristen

Fans von Waffen und Armeen haben anscheinend ein Problem: Gerne würden sie Waffen und Kriegsgerät bestimmungsgemäß eingesetzt erleben, jedoch selbst nicht in einem Kriegsgebiet leben. Als Ausweg bietet sich die Flucht in die Fantasie an, wie hier.

Die Geschichte spielt in unserer Welt und hat eine interessante Idee, dient danach aber nur als Vorwand um sich an Waffen und Kriegsgerät im Einsatz zu ergötzen. Selbstverständlich sind die Amis die Guten und die Russen die Bösen, der Rest steht fast nur im Weg rum. Unrealistische Höhepunkte für den Autor sind dort wo Amis und Russen sich direkt bekriegen ohne dass diese Konflikte global eskalieren.

nice plot with a little too much combat

well thought out plot by an excellent speaker, but too much detailed combat for my liking
