Silver Towerby Dale Brown
Synopses & Reviews
From the bestselling author of Flight of the Old Dog comes this shattering novel of the ultimate Middle East crisis. Iran has been invaded. And America responds in a grueling counterattack by air, by sea—and by brave new technology that will redefine war: the most sophisticated laser defense system ever. It is called Silver Tower. And it will change the balance of world power forever…
America has developed the most devastating weapon ever created-a laser defense system that will change the balance of power forever. And now, it's about to be tested in battle.
The year 1992 is a year of crisis. The last hope for peace is America's most sophisticated laser defense system ever--the Silver Tower. A world war is about to begin as America launches a grueling counterattack on the Soviets--by air, by sea, and by outer space.
