War in the East is the fourth book in Martin Archer's acclaimed Soldiers and Marines saga. It is the story of a soldier and his rise through the ranks over many years. This particular book is the fictionalized story of the intense fighting and American participation that would likely result if China takes advantage of Russia's military and political weaknesses, and invades the Russian East in an effort to restore to China the lands that were taken by various treaties when China was weak and Russia was strong.

The United States and some of its men are sucked into the intense fighting because Congress approved a naïve American Secretary of State's treaty to end an earlier conflict between NATO and Moscow, a treaty which obliges the United States to help Russia if Russia is attacked by China's resurgent Red Army.

Soldiers and Marines is the first book of the five books in this great saga of war. It is the story of a young man who finds himself fighting in the American army when South Korea is invaded. It describes the intense combat experiences that result in his battlefield commission, and subsequent battlefield promotions, in the desperate fighting of the Korean War that actually took place between a United Nations' force and the invading North Koreans and Chinese. It was a much more intense and brutal war than anything America has known in all the years that followed.

The second book of the saga, Peace and Conflict, follows the now-decorated soldier to Europe as an officer, and then to Vietnam, first with the French Foreign Legion's acclaimed Second Parachute Regiment when it goes down at Dien Bien Phu, and then as an observer of efforts of the Americans and their allies to defeat the Viet Cong.

The third book War Breaks Out occurs years later when he has risen to become a senior officer and receives an unexpected promotion to become a major commander in a very hot war. It describes the intense day by day combat that occurs when the Soviets and their allies invade Germany and NATO fights back.

The first three of the books, those that precede War in the East, are available together as a single collection in The Soldiers and Marines Trilogy.

The fifth book and final book in the saga is Israel's Next War. It describes the desperate fighting that occurs when a coalition of Islamic states and their militias suddenly stop fighting among themselves and launch a surprise invasion of Israel. This is a book whose initial reviews on Amazon and elsewhere have been mixed - Israelis and Israel's supporters in the west are fascinated because of the outcome it predicts for Israel and the Middle East; the Moslems of the Islamic states and their supporters hate it for the same reason.

A reviewer summed it up quite well: "I think the graphic descriptions in this book will open your eyes as to how easy a war can start and be fought. I love reading this author as he describes the events so well that you find yourself thinking that you are almost there with them. Martin has written several books that I have read, and really enjoyed all of them."

"What an amazing insight into how such a war might occur and what would result."
