In the aftermath of a series of student riots in Seoul, the U.S. Congress rushes a bill into law calling for the complete withdrawal of American troops from South Korea. This sets off a chain reaction: North Korea attacks across the DMZ, Russia supports North Korea, the Chinese remain neutral, and the United States fights again alongside its South Korean allies. The full range of ground, air, and naval forces take part in vicious combat, first to hold off the North Korean onslaught, then drive them back.

Though written a decade ago, the threat of war on the Korean Peninsula is as strong now as it was then. This work of fiction is a primer as to just how terrifying the next Korean War would be for all involved. Great understanding of all combat arms of the US Army.

I could not put this book down! It was absolutley amazing. It is the most suspenseful, rivoting, and action packed bokk that I have ever read. It was written very well and it moves ahead at a fast pace. I recommend this book very, very highly.

Bond takes you from the depths of the sea to the peaks of the mountains in Korea in the awesome techno-thriller. A very possible situaion in our present world. This book is a great way to see how a war would work now.

Red Phoenix by Larry Bond is an amazing techno-thriller filled with action and excitement. When North Korean forces pour across the DMZ into Southge Korea, the United States is caught in the middle of yet another war in southeast Asia. From the pilot's seat, to the grunt's foxhole, to the submarines periscope or the frigate's bridge, you'll feel like you're in the midst of combat.

This is a well written, exciting book! Even though it was written in 1989, it's as if it was written today with what is going on in North Korea.

Norcorea lanza una invasion en Corea del Sur. Los EU respaldan a los subcoreanos, al mismo tiempo que China y la URSS equipan a las fuerzas norcoreanas. EU envia a una flota naval para equilibar la deseperante situacion.

Well constructed, realistic plot. Lots of information regarding North and South Korean countryside and the difficulties that would be encountered in a war between the two countries. Lots of military action and scenarios.

My first contact with Larry Bond was via Harpoon, great strategy focused on naval warfare. Then I read "Red Storm Rising" he wrote in cooperation with Tom Clancy. Although I like techno-thrillers thing that annoys me the most is that political maneuvers are always very highly polarized - you have good guys and bad guys (no gray area) and soldiers fighting (but commendably soldiers are never declared as bad guys because they are always ordered to war by the bad guys) - it is just not the way things are on the greater scale (IMO books with more grasp on reality regarding this factor are Dragonstrike/Dragon Fire/Third World War (all by Humphrey Hawksley)).This one is not very different but nevertheless it is an interesting read.
