A powerful and fast-moving tale of the Navy-Marine Corps team in action, on a dangerous mission in the volatile Eastern Mediterranean.
Cloaked by the mists of dawn, Task Force 61 carrying tanks, aircraft, and over 5000 Marines steams toward Syria with deadly intent. Their mission: rescue 100 hostages from a terrorist stronghold alive.
With realism seldom seen in military fiction, The Med is a magnificent and timely epic that brings the human drama of armed conflict compellingly to life. Driven by believable, flesh-and-blood characters, it is a painstakingly detailed portrait of amphibious warfare as only David Poyer can paint it. The Med is today's most explosive tale of international crisis, personal valor, and emotional struggle a disturbingly plausible novel that crackles with non-stop action.
