Description

The American military experts were ready for everything except what actually happened... And because military strategists had never envisaged such a possibility, their formidable defence machinery, which was thought to be able to detect, then neutralize, any nuclear attack coming from any part of the globe, was suddenly powerless... The aircraft was flying inexorably towards its target - New York - and the Generals in the Pentagon were helpless.

 

Not only did they not know where the plane was coming from, but thirty seconds before the explosion they were not even sure of its cargo.

 

The author gives a graphic account of every stage of this hideously plausible operation, which started in Peking with a group of dissident Chinese Colonels who found the cultural revolution was not quite enough. 

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Robert Buchard

Robert Buchard ( December 24th, 1931 ) was born in Lausanne ( Vaud, Switzerland ), but he is of French nationality. 


After his law studies, he began a career as a journalist that would take him, all along his life, in news coverage throughout the entire world for Paris - Press, the O.R.T.F., TF1, etc... He covered the Algerian War ( 1954 - 1962 ), and sent back news stories of all the conflicts, coups d'état and revolution ( Vietnam, El Salvador, Iran and Irak, India and Pakistan, etc... ). 


He became a leading expert of Arab issues, and has written some books on the subject as well. Between two news stories, Robert Buchard wrote a couple of novels inspired by political, economical and international events. At the end of the 1980's, he co - wrote with Gérard Le Roux ( Swiss banker and international economic expert ) two politico - financial thrillers. In 1995, he passed to detective novel. 


A great golf lover ( even if he is not recognized as an excellent player ), he regularly spent time on golf courses, by chance during his reporter's peregrinations, and this for over 20 years. He retained number of anecdotes that he transformed into a collection of stories where humour, imagination and suspense are united for the reader's " delight ". 


Here are some books Robert Buchard wrote and co - wrote as well : Trente secondes sur New York ( 1969 ), Ce sacré vieil Harry : Golf stories ( 1986 ), Fumée verte ( with Gérard Le Roux, 1987 ), Parole d'homme ( 1989 ), Meurtres à Missoula ( 1995 ).
