A tense, bitter Middle East truce two years after the Soviets and the U.S. stopped shooting in Iran... A covert war in the Sudan and Ethiopia. The politicians and the military can't afford to make a mistake. But they have. Within their client states, blood feuds and passions, fueled by blind ambitions, collide.
From the first shots in a war out of control to horrifying scenes of desert warfare, courageous commando raids, murderous nerve-gas attacks, and a calamitous confrontation between the US and the USSR, Harold Coyle captures the lethal scope of a Mideast conflict that starts between Egypt and Libya, and soon pulls in the superpowers. Relentless, raw and full of unforgettable characters on every side, BRIGHT STAR reveals the shocking reality of high-tech warfare in a land of ancient passions -- and the eternal truths behind the men who fight it.
