Description

"Blessed are the Peace Keepers, for they will be called God's Children.""[Matthew; 5:9]" It is from this Biblical saying that Harold Coyle has taken the title of his new novel, "God's Children." Yet peacekeeping is not child's play. A tale of high-tech warfare set in near-future Slovakia, "God's Children "is the story of the 3rd Platoon, C Company, 2nd Battalion of the 13th Infantry, and two young officers who try to keep a peace that is falling apart before their very eyes. Simultaneously an action-filled adventure and a study of contemporary issues facing today's soldier, this novel displays Coyle's vast knowledge of military affairs through thrilling yet realistic scenes. Proving once again that Coyle is a master of military fiction, "God's Children "is as timeless as war itself.show more

Review quote

"Harold Coyle is the best natural storyteller I know."--Tom Clancy "Harold Coyle, rightfully acclaimed the Tim Clancy of ground warfare, has crafted not only a superb technothriller, but also a classic tale of men at war. "God's Children" is the best tale of a small unit of desperate men trapped behind enemy lines I've read in years."--W.E.B. Grifiin, author of the bestselling "Brotherhood of War "series "Coyle is a master at high-tech suspense. He spins his story with such power that you're swept along to the climatic finish. "God's Children" is his best."--Clive Cussler, "New York Times" bestseller authorshow more
