Summary The year is 2020 and civilisation is on the verge of a Third World War. Will the Russian invasion of the Arctic trigger the military response called for in the NATO treaty? Will the simultaneous Chinese cyber-attack on the Pentagon cripple the world's biggest military machine? Who's arming the refugees in the migrant camps on the shores of the Mediterranean? What's happening in space? From cyber security to weapons technology, from economics to robotics, from geopolitics to undercover operations, 2020: World of War will offer us a compelling account of the shape our world will take in the future. Told through a number of gripping scenarios, all reality-based, all using the authors' experience and inside knowledge of the way the world works, whether inside the Pentagon or on the front line of international conflict, this book is a must for everyone who wants to understand what our future looks like.
