The year is 2020 and civilisation is on the verge of a Third World War.
Will the Russian invasion of the Arctic trigger the military response called for in the NATO treaty?
Will the simultaneous Chinese cyber-attack on the Pentagon cripple the world's biggest military machine?
Who's arming the refugees in the migrant camps on the shores of the Mediterranean?
What's happening in space?

Told through a number of gripping scenarios, all reality-based, all using the authors' experience and inside knowledge of the way the world works, whether inside the Pentagon or on the front line of international conflict, this book is a must for everyone who wants to understand what our future looks like.
