    So many high ratings ... I do not understand it. As a reader of all 18 Lenson novels and great fan of Poyer, this one tarnished the series. The book lacked flow and was disjointed with too much jumping between the characters and subplots, most of which occurred without relationship to one other. The land battle scenes were highly forced, with supermen rather than believable characters. Additionally, the land battle scenes might be appropriate for 2050, but at his point were pure science fiction. So many high ratings ... I do not understand it.

Lastly, Lenson, the character after which the series is named, only receives brief airtime, and hardly any description is provided as to how he survives his predicament at sea. Captain Poyer, you can do better.

    Is Poyer trying to establish additional characters for a spinoff? Because Dan Lenson has, possibly, less airtime in this novel than his wife, never mind a set of ground-pounding Marines. Though the plot isn’t horrible, there are perhaps five pages of ship command in the entire book. It could be any war techno-thriller—the Naval aspect has submerged.

    Deep War is a war where everything is at stake—think the Somme or Stalingrad. China has intervened in a skirmish between India and Pakistan. When the United States sent in a carrier battle group, China destroyed it with a nuclear bomb—killing all 10,000 people aboard. It’s now year two of the war. In the US, the first and second amendments have been suspended as well as habeas corpus. A full draft has begun that includes woman for the first time.

When the United States sent in a carrier battle group, China destroyed it with a nuclear bomb—killing all 10,000 people aboard. It’s now year two of the war. In the US, the first and second amendments have been suspended as well as habeas corpus. A full draft has begun that includes woman for the first time. Due to Chinese hackers, only face-to-face and paper communications can be trusted. The US is seriously considering a confined nuclear solution. Later, China unleashes a new tech solution—an artificial intelligence called Jade Emperor that anticipates every move made by China’s enemies and how to counter them. There is also a renegade Navy Seal recruiting and training homegrown troops to infiltrate China on the CIAs behest. Deep War is the 18th entry in the Dan Lenson series. However, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. It has something for everyone: military strategy, politics, and low and high tech solutions to war. This book is highly recommended for those who enjoy military fiction but also those who like tech will enjoy it. It is scarily true to life. 4 stars! Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.

    This was NOT on par with the rest of David Poyer's work. David Poyers book work so well because they have been grounded in modern day reality. Deep War appears to be a departure into the "futuristic" This is the first Dan Lenson book that actually bored me at some points.....but I guess this format of breaking up a good eight hundred page book into 3 or 4 half-ass ones is working out well for the publisher.......

It is also the fifth book in the subseries The War with China and North Korea (what did Poyer know that the rest of us did not know?). I have read other earlier books in the Dan Lenson saga and was thrilled to get this early peek at this book arriving in December 2018. The war is primarily being fought in cyber space. The American economy is on the verge of collapsing. Military hardware and personnel replacements are virtually nonexistent. Communications are nearly impossible. All of this is due to the “Jade Emperor” China’s highly efficient computer network. As the story opens, Lenson is a Rear Admiral in charge of a task force and is based on the cruiser Savo Island. The task force is embroiled in an attack on Ningbo Island in the East China Sea. The ship is under the command of Commander Cheryl Staurulakis. Its primary mission had been to soften up the defenses of the island before a carrier plane attack. Whoops! That scenario did not work. When the Chinese sent waves of planes to counterattack, Savo Island was ordered to act as an electronic decoy. Unfortunately that did work, too well. Savo Island is badly damaged. Lenson boards a helicopter in order to shift his base of operation to another ship. His trip goes haywire and, along with two others, Lenson is now M.I.A. Another avenue the story takes is a mission deep in the Karakoram Mountains on the border of Pakistan, India and China, Master Chief Teddy Oberg (and Navy SEAL) is leading a ragtag group of native forces on raids against China. He is operating with support from the C.I.A. His handler gives him a secret, and probably suicidal, mission deep in China. Lenson’s wife, Blair Titus, works as Under Secretary of Defense for Strategy, Plans and Forces in Washington, D.C. Her family has been involved in government activities since 1831. She is worried about Dan’s disappearance but has a job to do. While on diplomatic mission to Ireland, Blair meets clandestinely with a member of the Chinese delegation who may or may not be a member of an opposition group in China who may or may not be offering an olive branch of peace. I could not put this book down and my meal schedule suffered mightily. I believe that if you are a fan of military fiction that you will be caught up from page 1, as I was. I have not read the previous four books in this subset but the author uses his literary talents to bring the reader up to date. I found that to most helpful. GO! BUY! READ!

    “Deep War” is the latest book in David Poyer’s “The War with China” series. This book follows five principal characters during the second year of this imagined war.

This book follows five principal characters during the second year of this imagined war. Poyer’s books prior to this China series followed the career of Dan Lenson, an American naval officer, through the crises in many of the world’s trouble spots. This series, however, looks forward to what a war with China might look like in the near future. The principal characters include Lenson himself in his role as high-ranking naval officer; Lenson’s wife as an expert in policy and military matters in the government; a female captain of an advanced naval vessel; a former SEAL who becomes involved with a band of rebels; and, a Marine Sargent. Poyer takes us through naval engagements involving characters we have been following throughout this series; military, diplomatic, and policy decisions involving political, technical, and military personnel; ground war involving Marine units; and insurrections by China’s enemies at home. Poyer’s narrative skills are evident here as elsewhere in this series: He creates three-dimensional characters that we learn to care about, independent from their lives and roles in the military or government. Poyer does a marvelous job in explaining to us, the lay reader, complex military and technical matters regarding weaponry and fighting ships. Furthermore, Poyer extends current military equipment and techniques into the near future and attempts to present both the opportunities and pitfalls of the new technology. Finally, Poyer describes for us the roles women are increasingly playing in modern warfare. He helps us understand the strengths they bring to the jobs and the special challenges they face in these circumstances of warfare. He does not treat them as a glamorous appendage to the stories, but as integral parts of the teams to which they are assigned and the expertise they bring to their positions. I strongly recommend the entire series and this book in particular

This is the 18th in his "Dan Lenson" series.  I received an ARC of this novel through https://www.netgalley.com in return for a fair and honest review. I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. The story is set in the near future. The US and its allies are at war with China.

I categorize this novel as ‘R’ because it contains scenes of Violence and Mature Language. The story is set in the near future. The US and its allies are at war with China. The primary character is Admiral Dan Lenson, but his wife Blair, Marine sergeant Hector Ramos, and Navy SEAL Master Chief Teddy Oberg all play significant roles. China has made a devastating nuclear attack against US naval forces. In the US there are beginning to be food shortages and power disruptions. Military and the private sector face various Chinese directed cyber and AI assaults. The US economy is being significantly affected.  A US Naval force makes an attack on China, but it is mostly ineffective due to previously unknown Chinese penetration of military systems. The Chinese Cyber efforts are being directed by Jade Emperor, a powerful AI system. It is out thinking US efforts at every turn. It seems that without taking Jade Emperor out of the war, the US has little hope. Oberg is behind enemy lines and organizing a guerilla military effort to harras the Chinese. He is sent on a very risky mission with his forces to attack a remote facility in the desert.  He hopes that whatever they are attacking will be worth the losses he anticipates.  I thoroughly enjoyed the 8 hours I spent reading this 292-page thriller. It was a little hard jumping into the middle of such a long-running series, but this novel read pretty well on its own. The way the story is left, there will definitely be another novel in the series. I like the chosen cover art. I give this novel a 4.5 (rounded up to a 5) out of 5.

    It's pretty difficult to call this a "Dan Lenson" novel. Lenson appears in less than 25 of the pages in the entire book. This series started more than 30 years ago. Who knew it would get to the point where the reader needs to have advanced degrees in computer science/artificial intelligence to understand what the hell is going on? Far too many subplots. Far too technical. What next? A Death Star? I miss the old seagoing Lenson.

    Ugh, this book is one of a couple I have read by this author, he has brilliant flashes of short stories in is books, but the majority of the book moves slow and switches gears without explanation. How does the scene go from a person in the mist of a plane crash, to sitting in a meeting with no discussion about what happened during the crash, what happened? Her husband goes from Admiral to Captain, how did that happen?

    The war with China rages on and nuclear bombs are used in Hawaii. The plot moves at a fast pace covering many fronts. At long last there finally seems some forward progress but like the prior in this series leaves and open end for the war to continue. A very enjoyable read for people who like adventure and technology solutions to war, very interesting developments here. Can't wait to read the next installment "Overthrow".

    Finish the war already Great book, but now I probably have to wait forever...again...for the rest of the story to finally finish. Seemed like this one was rushed. Just want to see how this war ends already.

    I enjoyed the book. It is interesting that though Mr. Poyer has a naval background, the gripping parts of the novel are infantry/land based. I will certainly purchase the next one to follow along with the ground pounders.

    Not one of his best I kind of felt that this book was almost like a movie that has footage that was cut from the movie but later added when the movie was remastered. However, I did enjoy parts about Lenson and what happened to USE Salvo.

    Fun read about the future fictionalized war between China, Pakistan and North Korea and USA, India, Vietnam, People, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, and Australia. I enjoy reading these fictionalized accounts of wars. Poyer writes well.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Great book, but after waiting for one year since the previous to-be-continued book, he should have at least finished the war in this book! Waiting until December 2019 is seriously rude!
