ABOUT THE BOOK:
ASSAULT BY FIRE by Lt. Col. (Ret), USMC H. Ripley Rawlings IV
In the thrilling tradition of Red Dawn and The Dirty Dozen, this action-packed page-turner from Lt. Col. Hunter Ripley “Rip” Rawlings IV brings together insider military expertise with riveting suspense as special ops fighters must foil a surprise attack on American soil in a daring novel fans of Brad Thor and Tom Clancy will love!
ASSAULT BY SEA
U.S. Marine Tyce Asher knew his fighting days were over when he lost his leg in Iraq. He thought he’d never see action again—but when he hears secret espionage intel that a potential attack from Russia is imminent, Tyce knows he has to do everything he can to stop it.
ASSAULT BY LAND
With his history in the Middle East and connections to other veterans, Homeland Security enlists Tyce to coordinate reserve fighters and special ops teams to help prepare the nation for an uncertain future…
ASSAULT BY FIRE
It is a full-fledged potential invasion orchestrated by a Russian military mastermind hellbent on destruction. With no time to lose, Tyce has to enlist every American he can find—seasoned vets, armchair warriors, backwoods hunters, even mountain moonshiners—to help protect their homeland.
