From the Publisher:
Harold Coyle, New York Times bestselling author of Against All Enemies, Trial by Fire, and Bright Star, is America's acclaimed master of the war novel. In Code Of Honor, Coyle delivers battlefield realism and excitement in a story that echoes the complex U.S. military mission in today's world....
A corrupt and fractured government in Bogotá, Colombia, requests a small expeditionary force of U.S. troops to combat drug lords and a growing insurgency. It's a scenario for disaster: an unstable country...an elusive enemy...a political and military minefield. The 11th Air Assault Division is called on to act as a police force, even when Brigadier General Scott Dixon reports back from a fact-finding mission that it's a war America can't win. But for a paper-pushing U.S. Major General in Bogotá, no initiative is too risky to safeguard his career. Then Captain Nancy Kozak -- under assault in the field, but determined to avert defeat and protect the soldiers in her command -- dares to defy him. With careers hanging in the balance, Kozak is struggling to survive an explosive clash that pits resolve against prejudice, and honor against ambition....
A weak and corrupt government in Bogota, Colombia requests a small U. S. military presence to combat drug lords and growing insurgency. General Scott Dixon leads the U. S. troops against an elusive enemy in a political minefield and Captain Nancy Kozak struggles to survive a clash that pits resolve against prejudice, and honor against ambition.
"Authentic....An all-too-plausible foreign relations/military snafu, plus credible portrayals of women-at-arms. Another winner of Coyle and his ongoing cast of heroines as well as heroes." Cincinnati Post
"Coyle captures the stress, exhilaration and terror of combat." New York Times Book Review
"Coyle is at his best when he's depicting soldiers facing death....He knows soldiers and he understands the brotherhood-of-arms mystique that transcends national boundaries."
