Coes writes the fiction illustration of Gorka's nonfiction book on jihad
Reviewed in the United States on July 14, 2016
This fiction book puts people and events to illustrate the nonfiction of Gorka's Defeating Jihad. Gorka defines the jihad, caliphate, place, violence, and power. Coes shows what this looks like and what the defeat of jihad terrorism looks like. Both show the philosophical bases for the ISIS and IS evil. Both offer means for America to win.
I read this in a day...in the day before the horrific terror in Nice, France (July 14, 2016). I believe Coes and Gorka portray the big picture which includes the bloodiest of mayhem in the name of evil...evil who want a caliphate, a place, and total control of believers only.
The ending of First Strike surprised me. I needed to return to the first 10 percent of the kindle version to recall how Dewey and Daisy entered the story line as friends. In a way, the domestic simplicity of family and friends offered a balance to the horrible violence of the IS evil.
Also surprising was Dewey's survival, given his multiple injuries in multiple time zones. To fight the jihad evil, good guys will get hurt or die.
