"The Last Centurion" by John Ringo. Fictional account of an Infantry Company that is left behind in Iran to secure American property while 2 major events are occurring - an outbreak of H5N1 flue and Global Climate Change....freezing, not warming. I can't put it down. Written from the Commander's perspective, follow Bandit 6 as he attempts to get home. What an intense book!!!!

Sounds almost identical to the beginning of "The War in 2020" by Ralph Peters.

I am beginning to show my age. This book came out in 1991.

I'll have to check that one out. I'm almost done with Centurion. It was awesome!

" The War in 2020" was very good. Except for who the enemy was/is, the book looks like near future prophesy.

I really like Ringo's military fiction. I have all of them. Pure fun.

He's from around these parts of Georgia too. Sort of a homeboy.

Pretty much anything by John Ringo is worth reading. had read them all a few years ago, may have to go back and see what I missed of his. Also check out THE WAR IN 2020 too.
