Ghost Fleet: A Novel of the Next World War

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: August Cole, P. W. Singer

Narrated By: Rich Orlow

Publisher: Recorded Books

Date: June 2015

Duration: 14 hours 28 minutes


The year is 2026. China has taken over as the world's largest economy, while the United States, mired in an oil shortage, struggles to adjust to its diminished role. Then, a surprise attack throws the U.S. into a chaos unseen since Pearl Harbor. As the enemy takes control, the survival of the nation will depend upon the most unlikely forces: the Navy's antiquated Ghost Fleet and a cadre of homegrown terrorists. Ghost Fleet is unique in that every piece of technology featured in the novel already exists or is in the works. Peter W. Singer is Senior Fellow and Director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institution and a consultant for the US Department of Defense and FBI. August Cole is a journalist and writer specializing in national security issues and is an Adjunct Fellow at the American Security Project.

    Relevant, illuminating, and an engrossing story. As a military person, I can authoritatively say that the book is frighteningly plausible. I only wish that ending of the next Great War is as predictable as the one portrayed in the book.

  • Gilbert Sanchez

    Pretty good! Has a lot of modern facets to it. But then again some of the futuristic technology is really far fetched. Highly recommended to those in the cyber warfare community.

  • Mathew Healy

    This is really a great read. Interesting story line and very intelligently written

  • Stephen Young

    This book just made me mad it was written so poorly. I couldn't finish it. The idea is outlandish and I didn't care about any of the characters. Depressing.
