New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown goes beyond the headlines in this high-tech, high-tension military thriller in which a resurgent Russia enflames sectarian unrest and violence in Ukraine and Poland, setting off a stealth robotic war and escalating an international crisis.

In the spring of 2017, the U.S. economy is rebounding under President Stacy Anne Barbeau, the country's first female president. But her leadership is about to be severely tested: Russian president Gennadiy Gryzlov has sent Special Troops, disguised as pro-Russian activists, into Ukraine and Moldova. Though NATO is outraged, its response is tepid. Refusing to let Russian aggression go unpunished, former U.S. president Kevin Martindale approaches Polish president Peter Wilk with a radical solution: a counterattack using a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID): manned robots.

Underwritten by the wealthy Wilk, Operation Iron Wolf is launched--without the knowledge of the Americans or its NATO partners. The CID's initial strikes are successful, infuriating Gryzlov and propelling President Barbeau to pledge western help to investigate the attack. With international tensions at the boiling point, Martindale's secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, is determined to outmaneuver the Russians.

In this battle that will determine the fate of Eastern Europe, just which side will win?

In Iron Wolf, New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown--"the best military writer in the country" (Clive Cussler)--returns with a propulsive military thriller pitting American hero Brad McLanahan against the Russians as conflict rages in Ukraine

All hell is breaking loose in Eastern Europe. Russian President Gennadiy Gryzlov has sent Special Forces troops, disguised as pro-Russia activists, into Ukraine and Moldova under the pretext of protecting Russian-speaking citizens. NATO is outraged but does little in response, leading former U.S. President Kevin Martindale to take matters into his own hands. Martindale approaches Polish President Piotr Wilk with a radical solution: strike back at Russia, not with the Polish army, but with a covert force of Cybernetic Infantry Device (CID) manned robots. And there's only one man capable of leading the mission: Brad McLanahan, son of the legendary Patrick McLanahan.

With Russia looking increasingly dangerous--and the U.S. doing nothing in response--Operation Iron Wolf is under way. The initial strikes are successful, destroying a Russian base in western Ukraine and drawing the furor of Gryzlov, who strikes a military base in neighboring Poland. Current U.S. President Stacy Anne Barbeau, still completely in the dark as to Martindale's scheme, pledges to aid the Russians in an investigation, and an epic standoff between Russia, NATO, and the Martindale-Wilk coalition ensues. Will Martindale's secret alliance, supported by the best military technology, win the day? Or will the Russian forces emerge victorious in the end? In this newest high-powered installment from New York Times bestselling author Dale Brown, tensions in Eastern Europe inform a political thriller of the highest order.
