Author's Note 


The world had always been a dangerous place, no more so than now. It is a story as old as mankind, the quest for power, dominence, and territory, and only the locale has changed.

The time is now and the place is the South China Sea.

The Dragon Sea is the second in a trilogy where a young and untested president of the United States is forced to fight a delaying action, employing a small team of special forces operatives, until he can bring the tradiotional tools of diplomacy, alliances, and economic pressure to bear.
