Iran, a nation ruled by the Ayatollahs, fanatics who yearn to possess nuclear weapons. Their latest act of madness is the construction of a nuclear weapons plant in the north of the country. To avoid nuclear war, it must be destroyed without suspicion falling on America. The solution, to send in a unit of elite Navy SEALs led by Master Chief Tony Chase, from the US Navy Littoral Support Ship USS Springfield.
Parachuted into the country, they are not without allies. The Kurds, a warrior race waging an uncompromising war to regain their homeland, offer their help to attack the impregnable underground installation. Yet Chase’s team hit trouble the moment their boots are on the ground. A brutal Islamic Revolutionary Guard presence, and a traitor giving away their plans mean their mission is doomed to fail from the start. Yet failure is not a word the SEALs recognize. Without any expectation of survival, they fight their way through to the explosive finish.
SEAL Strike: Nuclear Storm is the third short novel in the SEAL Strike series. Nuclear Storm is a collaboration between Todd McLeod and Eric Meyer, the bestselling author of more than fifty war novels.
