2034: A Novel of the Next World War
Realignment. Many of us have the tendency to think that the way things are now will continue into the foreseeable future. In their novel titled, 2034: A Novel of the Next World War, former military officers Elliot Ackerman and James Stavridis present a plausible realignment of the world order in the relatively near future. We often read fiction for a good story about people we recognize as fully human. The authors provide readers of this novel with a cast of compelling characters from multiple countries. Each main character is called upon to play a role or complete a mission, and through luck or fate they take actions that forward the strategic interests of their respective countries. Ackerman and Stavridis capture the individual and collective vulnerability we face and prompt readers to consider how likely it is for their fictional tale to become true.
