Reviews

"War with China is the most dangerous scenario facing us and the world. Absent a strategic method to manage our differences, Jim Stavridis and Elliot Ackerman's chilling novel presents a realistic series of miscalculations leading to the worst consequences. A sobering, cautionary tale for our time." -Jim Mattis, General, U.S. Marines (Ret.) and 26th Secretary of Defense

"A brilliant thriller! Masterfully plotted and elegantly written, 2034 is a literary tour-de-force. Let's just hope none of it comes true." -Brad Thor, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Near Dark

"A real page-turner, 2034 is a novel about a conflict we hope never happens. Drawing on their deep operational and diplomatic backgrounds, Admiral Stavridis and Elliot Ackerman have conjured a nightmare we desperately need to avoid. The novel is a cautionary tale for our times, and a reminder how quickly events can spin out of control-even before 2034." -Robert M. Gates, Secretary of Defense 2006-2011

"I could not stop reading 2034. With sharply drawn, vibrant characters caught in an all too plausible future conflict, the novel left me fascinated, moved, thrilled and, ultimately, haunted." -Phil Klay, author of Missionaries

"
2034
is an exciting, interesting, and informative novel about a hypothetical future war with China that is largely determined by actual decisions already made. It describes in detail how a single technological leap forward by an adversary, in this case China, could destroy our ability to communicate, resulting in a blind, hapless military. It also demonstrates how today's military policies will leave a future United States without adequate resources to wage a high intensity conventional war and be forced to resort to a first strike nuclear response and its horrific consequences. Anyone who is concerned about where today's military technology decisions are taking us should read this book." -Karl Marlantes, author of Matterhorn and Deep River
