With Germany and France locked in a deadly battle against the United States, massive dogfights occur in the skies, and the U.S. Navy struggles for survival in waters alive with U-boats

Blackwell North Amer
In a sequence of events as startlingly fresh as tomorrow's headlines, Europe's financial markets plummet in a free-fall that gives way to rampant unemployment in major industrialized countries and famine throughout the Third World. A massive surge of economic refugees from poverty-stricken Eastern Europe and North Africa provokes a bloody reaction by nationalist extremists across Western Europe. A devastating global trade war that nobody can win threatens to escalate into a shooting war that everyone will lose.
Now, a new, violently reconfigured Europe arises from the shattered debris of an Old Europe that could simply no longer exist. On one side stand France and Germany, united to create a single economic and military superpower stretching from the Atlantic to the Urals. Threatening to join their alliance is the former Soviet Union, poised on the brink of a neo-Stalinist takeover. On the other side, America and Britain link up with the new Eastern European democracies to deter the rise of a new tyranny even more menacing than the old USSR.
In a matter of days, German and French armored units lock in ferocious battle against Polish-manned M1 tanks and America's rapid deployment forces. Massive dogfights swirl in the skies as F-15 Eagles duel for air superiority against high-tech Rafale jets. And the U.S. Navy fights for survival in the landlocked North Sea - menaced by German U-boats, mines, and nuclear-tipped French missiles.
As much a compelling human drama as it is an epic saga of sweeping economic forces and clashing supermodern armies, Cauldron makes a new, terrifyingly uncertain world as real as only the best fiction can - and demonstrates once more why Larry Bond is the fastest rising military novelist today.
