Vortex by Larry Bond
In a world no longer dominated by two super powers, the theatre of conflict has shifted to the Third World - but with a deadly uncertainty never known before. The flashpoint is South Africa where a repressive regime has catapulted to power. The result is a conflict that will rage across the whole of southern Africa. It will realise many of man's worst fears, including the full-scale use of both chemical and nuclear weapons. It will raise the nightmare spectre of race war, global economic collapse, and Armageddon itself. As chaos threatens to spread across an entire continent, the United States mobilises for the military operation code-named Brave Fortune, the campaign it cannot afford to lose. Here are the weapons and the warfare, the diplomatic intrigue and the blueprints for modern combat that exemplify the art of the techno-thriller at its finest.
