Enhance your purchase
…Chaos reigns, as enemies foreign and domestic circle like sharks.
Can any part of the Republic be saved?
Hank and his section have been reconstituted in the aftermath of the coastal fighting that has seen many—though not all—of the Chinese invaders beaten back. The plot to control the West Coast ports and a good deal of the infrastructure has failed.
But the lights are still off.
And desperation is spreading like wildfire.
America—what remains of it—has been hurt. Badly. And the Triarii are at the forefront of the efforts to try to stabilize the situation. Because the US will need some kind of stability before the external enemies that have nearly brought it to its knees can be confronted.
Fortress Doctrine is in effect.
But the Triarii are spread as thin as their allies. Hank will have to adapt quickly to a new form of warfare.
And outmaneuver enemies he doesn’t even know exist yet…
You’ll love this military thriller, because it’s as intense as real-world warfare.
Get it now.

I've been reading Nealen's work since TASK FORCE DESPERATE, and I really have to remark how far he's come with his characterization. In FORTRESS DOCTRINE, we see themes of survivor's guilt and post-traumatic stress throughout the novel, done with a deft touch. For me, that's what really makes a story stand out, especially in this genre. I've read thousands of gun fights in print. Those alone can make a great thriller, but it's a much taller order. It's the personal touches, the snapshots of humanity, that really put stories like these over the top for me.
Of course, you'll get your gritty action (with his Reconnaissance and Scout Sniper experience in both major GWOT theaters, Nealen is a subject matter expert, and unlike a lot of former shooters, Nealen knows how to effectively translate war's chaos into print). You'll also get your speculative political discussion regarding World War III that forms the basis of the series (which is very well handled, all things considered; lesser authors would use the opportunity to ham-fistedly pontificate about their personal politics, while Nealen does a good job of keeping the focus on the speculation).
Definitely recommended, and I'm about to roll right into reading the next entry.
