One thought on “Weapons of Mass Deception

  1. Michael Hicks

    Note I received an ARC of this novel from the authors in exchange for an honest review Weapons of Mass Deception, a collaborative effort between two Navy guys, is a top notch military thriller and one that I hope is only the beginning of a new series.The book is filled with as much heart as it is technical know how and first hand experience from the authors in the realm of naval operations and military intelligence.There is a lot of depth and many moving pieces to the narrative, which concerns I [...]

    Characters Both Good and Bad Drive This Superb Military ThrillerWeapons of Mass Deception is a thrill ride of a novel Very Tom Clancyesque in its approach as a political military thriller, the narrative drives forward as the authors carefully build the narrative tension to a perfect climax And though some of that tension owes to the basic plot device of the very real threat of Iranian radicals detonating a nuclear weapon and, perhaps, starting World War III , the real cause is something cleverly [...]

    An exciting new military political thriller with interesting, well developed characters, Weapons of Mass Deception by David Bruns brunsdavid and J R Olson explores the what if scenario of Saddam s Iraq really having a handful of nuclear devices on the eve of the 2003 U.S invasion This review is based on an advance copy of the book provided by the authors for that purpose.No devices or other Weapons of Mass Destruction WMD were found after Saddam s regime fell, so where did they go Borrowing from [...]

    An engaging military thriller co authored by David Bruns and J.R Olson, Weapons of Mass Deception takes readers on a fast paced journey into the foreboding world of nuclear warfare A few select rogue Iranian agents could irreversibly alter world history Imagine that the 2003 raid on Saddam Hussein turned up no weapons of mass destruction not because they didn t exist, but rather because they were being safeguarded in Iran, with their masterminds patiently waiting until the time is ripe to usher [...]

    Patience and victory are twin sisters one does not exist without the other This is a fantastic, what if scenerio of the debacle in Iraqi with Saddam actually having weapons at his disposal The writing is fast paced, fact filled and alluring Not a typical reader of war type stories, I could not put this novel down and read it in a marathon weekend The concise descriptions, well developed characters and amazing plot drew me in and wouldn t allow me to leave page after page until the end David Brun [...]

    Strong characterization People you can root for You are there action I had to look up Swedish Fish, though

    4.5 StarsLet me start off by saying that I typically don t read much aside from my chosen genres As part of a foray into broadening my literary horizons, I read Weapons of Mass Deception A Novel of Nuclear Terrorism Being a military thriller, I knew little of what to expect aside from the obvious imagery the title and description allowed I was in for a pleasant surprise.To say that this book is well written undermines the importance of the supposed happenings built on and around what we know and [...]

    There were scenes of action in Weapons of Mass Deception when I just knew that the two authors must have had so much fun plotting out this book Their real life military experience shines through, adding even credibility to a political thriller that sometimes tracks so closely to recent events I began to wonder if the authors possessed a crystal ball at the time of writing The level of research gave me a greater appreciation of the complexities of life and politics in the Middle East than I had [...]

    I bought this book because two Navy Guys wrote it after a Kickstarter campaign It turns out they are products of the Naval Academy, and lots of the book includes experiences as midshipmen Since my US Navy experience did not include that institution which I have always called 4 years of bootcamp, you have to be mental to want that I learned a few things about a part of the Navy I had not known Overall, I liked the book and I will check out others they publish The action in all phases was top notc [...]

    Weapons of Mass Deception by David Bruns and J.R Olson is an impressive military thriller The plot is cleverly constructed with leanings towards speculative fiction and conspiracy, yet it treads carefully in those territories and presents a plausible and believable storyline full of action and suspense.Told in various segments and alternating viewpoints we witness acts of heroism and terrorism surrounding the weapons of mass destruction that left Iraq in 2003 just before the invading American an [...]

    Imagine a different pathThis book was a really interesting and well crafted spy story with likable characters that would have been worth reading on its own But what I really enjoyed was how the story branched off from current events to imagine a different future Add in detailed descriptions of life in Minnesota and I was hooked

    ComplexCompelling story but hard to follow with so many characters, especially those with similar foreign to me names It took some backtracking and re reading to keep it all straight.
