Publisher's Summary

Why do wars really start?

In Battlefield Ukraine, all the usual suspects are hard at work: battles over resources, money, and miscommunication. This predictive novel explores a potential war between NATO and Russia over the fate of the separatist regions in eastern Ukraine.... You'll hope this realistic scenario doesn't become a self-fulfilling prophecy. 

Lines have been drawn in the sand, but how firm are they? Will the massive disinformation campaign by the Russians trick the new American administration to do their bidding? Will the new American president back down, or will the world creep one step closer toward global war?

President Trump portrayed in the character President Gates is way overrated.

I would’ve given this book a five star rating and it is worth listening to, but the authors have bought into the Trump agenda and support his crazy rejection of our intelligence services. Having served In US Army Signal intelligence during the Cold War in West Germany and Berlin, the Soviets had the ability to jump from a training exercise into an attack on NATO. It would be difficult with certainty to know for sure that an attack was coming if Soviets wanted to launch it as a surprise.

Decently written Trumpian World View

At the risk of a spoiler, President Gates is very clearly Donald Trump. The book takes a favorable view of his style (firing everyone and locking up members of the opposition party). But if you can handle the politics, it’s not a bad thriller. I would give the story 2.5 stars if I could.

Poorly written, xenophobic, Alt-Right propaganda,

I gave up on this one part of the way into it. All this talk of a new powerful "Caliphate" with the ability to upend the West is just an insult to people's intelligence. This whole Islamic bogeyman gimmick is getting rather old. Also, there's a list of inaccurate military details as long as my arm.

Good premise, falls short everywhere else

This audiobook had so much potential but really fell apart in multiple areas. First of all, the author's knowledge of military strategy, tactics, lingo, and systems was quite limited. There were glaring inaccuracies related to the capabilities of certain military equipment. They did a decent job describing ground combat but their descriptions of air and naval combat were laughable at best. It seems the authors wanted to show the NATO leadership as inept, but really they really jumped the shark at points. The worst part was the pro-Trump propaganda that permeated the political scenes. The writers mentioned all the familiar scandals about Russia and the election but implied it was all trumped up (no pun intended) by the media. They portrayed the president as acting alone against powerful opposition from the media, intelligence services, and the Washington establishment just as Trump does. However they also portrayed the president as mostly sensible, open-minded, and someone who carefully listened to his advisors, everything we know that Trump is not. Either way, if you are into military books this isn't a complete waste of time, but it doesn't hold a candle to Red Storm Rising, the War Planner series, or Team Yankee.
