    A powerful, riveting military thriller that grabs you to the end... It’s fabulous! That’s the short cut to essentially what this book is. If you like a good military thriller that takes you into the heart of the theatre, you’ll adore Mr Ryan’s novel. Charge of Battle is a powerful, brutal book that strips back the veneer of war being a romanticized notion of patriotism and flag waving, to that of what it is - a bloody, painful and almost soul-destroying experience. A place where in one second you’ A powerful, riveting military thriller that grabs you to the end... It’s fabulous! That’s the short cut to essentially what this book is. If you like a good military thriller that takes you into the heart of the theatre, you’ll adore Mr Ryan’s novel. Charge of Battle is a powerful, brutal book that strips back the veneer of war being a romanticized notion of patriotism and flag waving, to that of what it is - a bloody, painful and almost soul-destroying experience. A place where in one second you’re firing everything you’ve got, and the next moment, you’re blown apart, your limbs scattered in all directions. It isn’t for the faint of heart, or even those thrill seekers that want sanitized versions of the battlefield. But if you want a book that will grab you, captivate you and hold you with an undeniable magnetism, you’ve found it. The book is set in a altered reality where Russia has invaded the Baltics and is making advances into Poland. Their sudden and vicious attacks has pulled nations into a world war III status, with NATO troops fighting the Russia assaults. Unlike all the supposed press the button type nuclear scenarios, this WW3 is fought on a blood stained battle field, with the indefatigable goal being survival. Within the first few pages, the reader is brought quickly into the action at the Bemowo Piskie Training Area near the Drygaly Village in Poland. The main protagonists, Sergeant First Class Tom Edge and Scout Team Leader Sergeant Vince Waddingham arrive in an inimitable ‘buddies who watch each other’s backs’ style. These moments of camaraderie keep things on a lighter path. Their need to keep spirits up is expected given that they are Scouts, part of the ‘Outlaw Troop’ – the brave soldiers that surveil and scout out the enemy’s advance position, whilst the rest of their Cavalry colleagues attack the enemy’s flank. The tension of politics, and play offs abound, with strategic priorities focusing on shoring up Warsaw’s protection and defense against Russia’s attack, at the expense of resources and military might else where. What that really means is a lot of people lose their lives as back up isn’t there when it’s needed. The main battle in the book takes place on the bridge on the River Sypitki near a village called Norwid-Slowack. It is the Cavalry’s job to get across the bridge if they are to attack the Russian flank. If they capture the bridge, they’ll be able to dent Russian onslaught significantly. Of course, the Russians know this too, and there in begins a battle to the death. Of course, this book isn’t just a war drama, for all its excellent factual accuracy (and it’s spot on!), it’s also a thoroughly realistic thriller demonstrating what happens when the cold, hard hand of politics smashes into the ferocity of war. The political standoff with Edge and the Polish Major Nowakowski is tense, nail biting and reflective of how cowardly, inadequate people with the right connections get on, and get promoted to the point where they can demean and dominate all. I really felt for Edge through out the conflict, and could feel my jaw-dropping as his Strykers and the soldiers inside were obliterated to dust, just because Major Nowakowski had a slight headache and couldn’t allow his Company to enter the fight. It’s really one of those moments when I almost hit my Kindle with anger, such is Mr Ryan’s powerful, poignant writing. The brilliant characterisation of the key characters is what makes this military thriller come alive, and I found myself deeply invested in Edge, Waddingham and Kalina – the long suffering but tough daughter of the Nowakowski, and even in Nowakowski, although I hated his character, I was still engrossed in what he would do after Edge humiliated him in an perfect moment of skill and capability, that demonstrated Edge was clearly the better solider. The relationship between Kalina wanting to be a fighter, and her father being the opposite, was an interesting dynamic, giving Mr Ryan the opportunity to explore aspects of courage and bravado. He who shouts isn’t always the one who is the bravest. The treachery and spiteful actions that resulted in so much bloodshed were affecting and painful to read, but this reaction only serves to demonstrate the power of Mr Ryan’s story-telling. I raced through the pages, my heart hammering as hard as the protagonists skulking around the enemy command post, to reach the final denouement. Giving no spoilers, but it is a moment of genius -satisfying, authentic and perfectly imagined. If you like hard-hitting military thrillers with a superb twist you’ll love this. Very highly recommended.

    Thrilling nonstop action! From the first chapter to the last this was a terrific read. I couldn't put it down, couldn't stop until the last word. My adrenalin was high throughout, coursing through my veins bringing my nerves to a fever pitch. Like I stood amidst the action myself, I flinched with every passing bullet, my muscles twitched as I tried to roll away from a burning Stryker, my eyes searched off the page for the grenade thrown too close. I'm gloriously cheered by a successful operation, Thrilling nonstop action! From the first chapter to the last this was a terrific read. I couldn't put it down, couldn't stop until the last word.

I'm gloriously cheered by a successful operation, but I am so tired, like I just slogged through the mud and the blood with the heroes in the fight. I was one with Edge, tied to his waist with bullets whining overhead and shrapnel flying. Amazing, intense action so thoroughly described it was truly possible to imagine myself in the midst. Realistic and terrifying, I couldn't put it down.

    An amazing novel! I love the way Nick Ryan describes the combat of World War III being similar to that of World War I and the way NATO defends Poland. I also love the way the Americans and the Polish defend the nation. I noticed that a sequel has come out! I'm getting it this coming month. A must read if you're a technothriller fan.

    If You Ain’t Cav... Outstanding and on par with Team Yankee and Red Storm Rising. WW3 has just begun and Nick Ryan is leading the charge with the first volume of action packed military action. It’s been a long time since Team Yankee was published and Charge To Battle has toppled it from the top of my favorite military fiction list.

    Lots of people focused action, not a techno- thriller I was expecting something along the lines of Team Yankee updated for the modern battlefield. This book was more narrowly focused on one battle with little of the strategic picture. That said it does not disappoint and provides a very entertaining read that's hard to put down.

    Great First Read Was curious to see what this book had to offer. Pleasantly surprised to find a book that was very engaging and difficult to put down. The action was non stop and very believable. The characters were well developed and also very believable. Will start on book 2 immediately.

    Great story. I really like these types of novels and alternate military history novels. A lot of authors ruin them by trying to make them a political statement bolstering their political beliefs, ruining the story. This book did not do that. It was a well written battle story. Looking forward to more from this author.

    This was a fun quick and easy read. It was part of a series revolving around the start of WWIII in Europe and for this book in particular in Poland. It kept me entertained on a few lunch hours and I am looking forward to reading the next one.

    Too short but was very good! Only thing I can say against it is it should have been 250 pages longer to be excellent. Great read anyway.

    Okay book Nice read, bit far of and unbelievable here and there. One man heroes and war bands have little place in modern warfare I fear.
