Description : What will the next global conflict look like? Find out in this ripping, near-futuristic thriller. The United States, China, and Russia eye each other across a twenty-first century version of the Cold War, which suddenly heats up at sea, on land, in the air, in outer space, and in cyberspace. The fighting involves everything from stealthy robotic–drone strikes to old warships from the navy’s “ghost fleet.” Fighter pilots unleash a Pearl Harbor–style attack; American veterans become low-tech insurgents; teenage hackers battle in digital playgrounds; Silicon Valley billionaires mobilize for cyber-war; and a serial killer carries out her own vendetta. Ultimately, victory will depend on blending the lessons of the past with the weapons of the future. Ghost Fleet is a page-turning speculative thriller in the spirit of The Hunt for Red October. The debut novel by two leading experts on the cutting edge of national security, it is unique in that every trend and technology featured in the novel — no matter how sci-fi it may seem — is real, or could be soon. Praise for Ghost Fleet‘A wild book, a real page-turner.’ The Economist ‘Ghost Fleet is a thrilling trip through a terrifyingly plausible tomorrow. This is not just an excellent book, but an excellent book by those who know what they are talking about. Prepare to lose some sleep.’ D. B. Weiss, writer of HBO’s Game of Thrones ‘It’s exciting, but it’s terrifying at the same time.’ General Robert Neller, commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps

Description : Chronicles the history and archaeological study of Lake George, New York’s sunken bateaux of 1758. In Ghost Fleet Awakened, Joseph W. Zarzynski reveals the untold story of a little-recognized sunken fleet of British warships, bateaux, from the French and Indian War (1755–1763). The story begins more than 250 years ago, when bateaux first plied the waters of Lake George, New York. Zarzynski enlightens readers with a history of these utilitarian vessels, considered the most important vessels that transported armies during eighteenth-century wars in North America, and includes their origins and uses. By infusing the book with underwater archaeology doctrine, Zarzynski shows the nautical significance of these colonial craft. In the autumn of 1758, the British command at Lake George made a daring decision to deliberately sink two floating batteries (radeaux), some row galleys and whaleboats, a sloop, and 260 bateaux, thereby placing the warships into wet storage and protecting them from marauding French during the coming winter. In 1759, many submerged boats were raised but some were not. Then, in 1960, two divers rediscovered several sunken bateaux, dubbed the “Ghost Fleet.” These shipwrecks were the focus of underwater archaeological investigations that provided archaeologists with opportunities to gain unprecedented insight into eighteenth-century lifeways. Zarzynski explores and explains shipwreck preservation techniques, the creation of shipwreck parks for scuba enthusiasts, and the many multifaceted programs developed by the nonprofit organization Bateaux Below to help protect these finite cultural treasures. “Zarzynski offers fascinating new research on bateau shipwrecks through the use of manuscripts, period newspaper accounts, and interviews. It is an outstanding piece of research, explaining the chronological history of cultural resource preservation. No other book provides this level of documentation on the role of bateaux during the wars of the eighteenth century.” — Russell P. Bellico, author of Empires in the Mountains: French and Indian War Campaigns in Forts in the Lake Champlain, Lake George, and Hudson River Corridor “This is a major contribution to the field of American history, New York State history, underwater archaeology, and cultural resource management. There is no equivalent book that documents this story.” — Timothy J. Runyan, editor of Ships, Seafaring and Society: Essays in Maritime History
Description : The Devil's Ghost Fleet.Because of the first instant birth of the Gods and their subsequent mutation and amalgamations, some became rulers of darkness, while others of light. Eventually, creation capped evolution by the introduction of the vicegerents of the land, humans, such that conflicts of interest and disputes ensued as they evolved along sides their Lords. Therefore, a class of archangels was charged with disciplining and taming the people.While the Creator cared for the Cosmos, his angels ferried between Heaven and Earth. Some made contact with the ordinary whom they taught vice and magic, others with choice prophets and messengers to whom they brought the word.Ever since those contests continued to shape Man and the world across destiny. Thus, wars became the means by ways of which the planet developed, where humans are the harvest and the Devils the reapers.Nonetheless, however, Christ is his own Anti, because it was He who wrote mercy upon himself and his subjects when He decided to evolve clemency and passion through them. Yet the Adam Family had to be coaxed into mastering their own fate and reality. As such, nothing could have made more sense than for God to partition his soul, hence His Anti who coerces people into action. But for him to do so, He had to erupt wars throughout history; the wars of the antichrist.Meanwhile, the Shiva and Vishnu who command the Ghost Fleet invade the nations of the world, one by one. Jannes and Jambres continue to comfort Aroot and Afoot and assist the Antichrist in their conquests. Eventually, Satan enters the world in the flesh and provokes the Armageddon, but that is when Jesus leads the Muslim Armies in defeating him before the invasion of the Gog and Magog, Israel at the ends of times.
