Description

From the New York Times best-selling author of the Gray Man series comes a startlingly realistic novel of World War III. 

A desperate Kremlin takes advantage of a military crisis in Asia to simultaneously strike into Western Europe and invade east Africa in a bid to occupy three rare Earth mineral mines that will give Russia unprecedented control over the world's hi-tech sector for generations to come. 

Pitted against the Russians are a Marine lieutenant colonel pulled out of a cushy Pentagon job, a French Special Forces captain and his intelligence operative father, a young Polish partisan fighter, an A-10 Warthog pilot, and the commander of an American tank platoon who, along with his German counterpart, fight from behind enemy lines. 

Through grand land, sea, and air battles to a small unit fighting hand-to-hand in the jungle, Russia and the US face off in a terrifying but thrilling battle for world dominance - with constant the threat of a Russian nuclear detonation ever present.

Riveting Story

I was always a huge fan of Tom Clancy and have missed his work since his untimely death. I have been searching for something else of that calibre ever since. I definitely found it. Mr. Greaney is an excellent writer and I have finally found a worthy successor to Mr. Clancy in my book collection. The story was fast paced and the performance of the narrator was excellent.

a lot like Tom Clancy

the story started out with a lot of hype and politics, very much like a Tom Clancy novel, but it certainly got going about half way through!
not quite what I'm used to from Mark Greaney.

the one book I regret purchasing

struggled to finish this long and drawn-out talesof pointlessness I can't believe that Mark greaney had anything to do with this book as I am an avid Reader of his work I found this to be dry and relentlessly boring I honestly can say if I was more disappointed with the story or the absolutely horrific narration

Not a fan

I love Mark Greaney but I have to say I am not feeling this book. Yes, I'm giving it a chance as I am at chapter 28 just can't get into it. Is me or do others feel the same?

Great performance

I thought the performance was great, but the story was sub-par. It didn’t hook me at all, and some of the characters were so cliched I would roll my eyes.
Too bad, as I enjoyed Mark Greaneys story’s before.

Best military thriller since Red Storm Rising

I loved this book. Have been a big fan of Greaney for a while with the Gray Man series and Clancy's Jack Ryan books. This is a terrific yarn with a big cast of characters; Marine LtCol, tank regiment Cmdr, A10 & Apache helo pilots, a Polish reserve girl who comes into her own under fire, US submarine commander and several Russian army baddies. Extremely well plotted and realistic, by the end I could not put it down. It's a long story - over 20 hours on audible but kept me riveted throughout. Narrator was excellent.

Good story, too much detail

Really enjoyed this. As is the case for much of this genre, you have to suspend disbelief re: some of the story elements but none of it is outrageous. The authors write a very good story, but there is a heavy emphasis on the technicalities of war fighting and weapons and IMHO, the story is too long. But these quibbles are minor. The authors know their stuff to be sure. The narration was excellent. If you like this genre, then you'll like this book. 20 hours of story is good value for money!

Story of Russian Aggression

The story is good and keeps you interested. Interesting how militia groups can take on large forces and cause the large forces to rethink their strategy and in some cases change direction. Anyone that likes a story of invasion and how they are chased back should like this story

Excellent listen!

This is the best military audiobook I have listened to in a long time. It is rare for a military audiobook to get down into detail and strategy, and also have an excellent plot. This audiobook delivers. I just wish I could have listened to this audiobook on a cross country drive instead of to and from work.

Outstanding! Worth waiting for!

Mark Greaney is already at the top of authors of espionage thrillers. With this long and very complex military thriller he excels with a different genre. Setting up the various parts of RED METAL requires some time, but the listener should stick with the book to be rewarded by an outstanding novel. Marc Vietor's narration is superb.

Russkies Go Home

If you like fictional "What If" war stories such as Tom Clancy's RED STORM RISING or SWORDPOINT,.....................
A good story teller Mark Greaney combines with an expert Military advisor Lieutenant Colonel Hunter Ripley Raulings USMC to create a real page turner of a Military novel. Could it happen ?? Maybe....Maybe not.But if it did [or something like it] the tactics and state of the art weapons systems could be utilized as described.
In a nutshell that and a great story is it's appeal. In fact there is so much there I will listen to it again in a few weeks and enjoy it just as much. Listening to Red Metal for 21 hours and 21 minutes.it seemed to pass very quickly.
Probably more of a guy book but there are strong believable female warrior characters for women that might enjoy a good Tom Clancy novel. This would make for a Great Beach book.

aweful

Of all the books I have listened to this will be my first review. it was just so bad. i was so excited too after listening to all the gray man series. it's not like I didn't really give it a try. I made it through the first 8 hours. painfully. the story is so painstakingly detailed it is more like reading an encyclopedia. and the performance is probably worse than the story. his cadence is so irritating. he talks clearly then always goes into this rough sounding voice and ends with a weird uptick as if asking a question. nonstop. every sentence. I have never quit a book, even though a few I wanted to....this one was just too much for me to handle.

Amazing military thriller!

This is one heck of a book. The reader, Marc Vietor brings the 3D characters, stunning scenery and detailed plot to life. A must for military thriller lovers

The narrator is very good

I understand that this type of book will be like this. All shooting, blowing up, killing whatever.
I think the author does a good job, but it is really a lot of hours of the same thing. I need more story, I guess. I let this book run through the whole thing, but all the battles are the same, so 3 hours later, that is still going on. 21 hrs .....and the narrator is still on a roll

Mark Greaney Never Disappoints!

great paced, realistic nightmare scenario, crisp writing; I couldn't put it down!
Lt. Colonel Rawlings your part in this novel is seamless! I can't wait to see what you guys come up with next.
Marc Vietor did a tremendous job presenting the material.


Thank you for a GREAT listen

My first review

I have to comment that this book is written for vets and military personnel. Way to much emphasis on equipment and guns. Almost no character development

A true heir to Tom Clancy.

In the tradition of Clancy's early novels. The story reflects the detail and flavor of modern war/politics.
