The Profession by Steven Pressfield

In a not too far distant future America has gotten fed up with wasting their young.   Mercenaries have become the popular method of dealing with international crisis.  A charismatic general has become the hope of millions.  Is he the hope for the nation or a despot in the wings?

The most frightening something about this book is its believability.  The weapons technology is an obvious extension of of current technology.  The crises faced in the book are also an obvious extension of current world disorder.  Sadly it is easy to see how a charismatic leader could be both a savior and a disaster.

There were good characterizations and enough action for practically anyone.  Don't get discouraged with the overly verbose details and descriptions early in the book.  All the advanced technology and weapons simply come down to the relationship between men.  

This book is certainly worth reading and is a sobering appraisal of a possible path for OUR nation. 

I highly recommend it.
