About the Author

Mick Ryan is a strategist and retired major general from the Australian Army. A distinguished graduate of Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, as well as the USMC Command and Staff College and USMC School of Advanced Warfare, he is a passionate advocate of professional education and lifelong learning. In a 35-year military career, he commanded at multiple levels in the Australian Army and served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and East Timor. His first book, War Transformed, was published in 2022.


The author's professional background equips him well to describe changes in military technology and tactics, and these areas are covered well in the narrative.

A gripping account of future war that is equal parts entertaining and sobering. Mick Ryan writes with a credibility and authority that transforms this techno-thriller into a provocative wartime narrative that belies its fictional roots … An absolute must read.
*Steve Leonard, Senior Assistant Dean of the University of Kansas School of Business and co-editor of To Boldly Go: Leadership, Strategy, and Conflict in the 21st Century and Beyond*

To be successful, future war fiction requires an author who is militarily expert, has literary skill and an imaginative gift. Mick Ryan has all those qualities in abundance, and the result is a book that is entertaining, thought-provoking and quite possibly prescient. Not just an engaging tale but a warning of things to come.
*Eliot A. Cohen, Robert E. Osgood Professor of Strategic Studies, Johns Hopkins SAIS*

White Sun War is a first-rate techno-thriller. It is an enjoyable read in and of itself, but its concept-driven narrative is what sets it apart from other books. The characters and their interactions illuminate ongoing debates about the future of war and how a conflict between the United States and China could well play out … While the goal is certainly to avoid war, it is far better to be intellectually prepared for that possibility and its conduct, and Ryan’s entry is a welcome addition to this discussion.
