READ MORE ON Tidal Rip
Tidal Rip

A terrible new war has begun. It is the year 2030, and the EU has collapsed. In the socio-economic ruins of Central Europe, a military-industrial-financial conspiracy after years of anticipation launches the New Hohenzollern Empire, with a figurehead Kaiser restored in Berlin. The key instrument of this war to subdue the U.S. is tactical nuclear weaponry at sea, where a single torpedo or cruise missile can destroy an entire carrier or convoy. And while the war will be fought with high-tech weapons, it will be won or lost by the men and women who fight to defend America's Homeland and world freedom.

Commander Jeffrey Fuller is America's newest hero. Awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his victories in battle as captain of America's most sophisticated and deadly fast-attack nuclear submarine, the USS Challenger, Fuller takes grim satisfaction in the honor, knowing at what cost it came. But he has barely enough time to receive the decoration before he is tasked with a new mission. An Allied convoy is steaming toward Africa, hoping to establish a beachhead on the Axis-occupied continent. The New Hohenzollern Empire has dispatched its most lethal new submarine, built with heavy help from Russia, the nuclear-powered SMS Admiral von Scheer. Her commander Ernst Beck's mission is to ensure that the Allied convoy never reaches its destination. Fuller's mission is to protect the convoy at all costs.

Then a nearly impossible mission gets even more difficult. Berlin is attempting to gain a foothold in South America, a development that would force the United States to fight the war on yet another front, an escalating conflict the good guys can't possibly win. Now Fuller must make a no-win decision: deploy his team of Navy SEALs to South America to destroy the nuclear-armed enemy insurgents, or patrol the depths of the Atlantic seeking threats to the convoy? The failure of either mission will mean defeat for the Allied cause. Stalking his prey beneath the waves where the pressure alone can kill, Commander Jeffrey Fuller knows that while one man's life may be meaningless, one man's death could change the course of the war. But who will die, Fuller, or Beck, or both?

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

[Joe Buff / JoeBuff.Com] Submarines rank among the most sophisticated weapons systems, and the most impressive benchmarks of technology and engineering, ever achieved by the human race. Stunning feats of courage by their crews, of sacrifice and endurance, loom large on the pages of history. Since the end of the Cold War, a whole new generation of submarine classes, with astonishing sensors, weapons, off-board vehicles, and stealth, was conceived and is under construction by the United States Navy.

The world's oceans are the world's highways for the transport of goods and the conduct of commerce. Continued mastery of undersea warfare is vital, because whoever controls the ocean's depths controls its surface, and thus protects much of the world. Seapower, strongly employed, is key to upholding peaceful societies everywhere.

[Joe Buff / JoeBuff.Com] But do America and our Allies take our free access through international waters too much for granted? Advanced submarine technology is proliferating among countries who haven't always been our friends. Nuclear weapons are also spreading at an alarming pace, with trans-national conspiracies, shrewdly hidden for years, only recently being unmasked. What mortal threats to freedom still remain hidden?

The enemy you don't see coming, because of your own blind spots and preconceived notions, is the one who'll get you every time -- and the enemy knows it too. The 9/11 Commission Report warned us all of “failures of imagination” and “unprepared mind-sets.” Beyond the global war on terror, what shape might the 21st century's almost inevitable, eventual major worldwide armed conflict take? When faced with so many dangerous future unknowns, the Navy wargames worst-case scenarios to learn everything it can. As a professional writer and seasoned risk analyst, my extreme action-adventure novels aim to do the same thing, based on a firm foundation of extensive and constant non-fiction research. Perhaps the only certainty is that heroic submariners and special operations forces will play a key role in deterring that Next Big War, or in winning it.
