From the publisher's website:
Ripped from today's headlines, Act of War: Direct Action is a frightening tale of suspense, international intrigue and geopolitical military conflict. This real-time strategy experience puts you squarely in control of counterterrorist forces and delivers a first look at tomorrow's war.
The Situation - A crippling energy crisis. Terrorist attacks. Massive strikes. Global instability.
The Enemy - A shadowy Consortium of back-room conspirators determined to throw the world into utter chaos using widespread terror tactics.
The Heroes - A new "direct action" operation known as Task Force TALON to counter massive military assaults, rescue hostages, conduct classified spy missions, take prisoners and stop an unpredictable enemy bent on toppling the world's governments.
