Book Review: War with Russia

I saw General Sir Richard Shireff’s absurd little “thriller” on Amazon recently and was trying to accommodate the book in my review lineup, knowing very well that its pro-NATO and anti-Russian overtones would trigger me. Thankfully, Professor Paul Robinson has beaten me to it. His review is well worth a look.

IRRUSSIANALITY

As NATO wraps up its summit meeting in Warsaw, it will no doubt be patting itself on the back for displaying ‘unity’ and ‘resolve’ in the face of ‘Russian aggression’, in particular by agreeing to station a semi-permanent garrison of four battalions in Poland and the Baltic States. If we are to believe NATO’s former Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Sir Richard Shirreff, such displays of strength are exactly what are needed to ‘deter’ Russia and prevent war. That is the message of a novel he has just published, entitled 2017. War with Russia. An Urgent Warning from Senior Military Command.
