In the not-too-distant future, will the United States lose its status as a world Superpower?
“Prelude to World War III” describes a possible future that you’ll hope is not prophetic.

In this power vacuum, a new Islamic Caliphate forms, sweeping quickly across the globe.
China and Russia also flex their military muscles, and they have the most up-to-date technological innovations ready for battle: railguns, unmanned drone tank vehicles, exoskeleton suits and cyber-warfare.
“Prelude to World War III” is the first book in this predictive World War III military thriller series. If you like pulse-pounding action and global politics, you’ll love Rosone and Watson’s novel.
