Conflict in the North is Daniel Little's second exciting novel involving the Canadian Armed Forces! This time the
Soviet Union is threatening Canada's North and NORAD and all that stands before them is a small group of Canadian Rangers,
and one regular Canadian Army sergeant.
is 1966, and the Cold War is hot! The Prime Minister knows that Canadian Sovereignty is only being given lip service by the
world’s two Super Powers, but when a team of Soviet Spetsnaz commandos is discovered in Labrador on a mission to disrupt
NORAD’s Pinetree Line communications, he realizes he must act swiftly or risk Canada forever becoming a mere puppet
on the world stage.
The President of the United States, also aware of the Soviet Spetsnaz incursion
and brushing aside Canada’s jurisdiction, orders a US Navy SEAL detachment on a clandestine mission to Labrador with
the mandate of eradicating the Spetsnaz intruders and returning without being detected by the Canadians. When the Royal Canadian Navy destroyer HMCS Margaree runs afoul
of the Soviet and American nuclear submarines responsible for transporting their respective commando units however, events
escalate quickly, driving the world to the brink of nuclear disaster. Like the Prime Minister, HMCS Margaree's captain must
think quickly to avert disaster.
High above the drama being played out on the ocean's surface, RCAF 416 Squadron CF-101 Voodoo's from Royal Canadian Air
Force Station Chatham are defending Canadian airspace, directed to their targets by the men and women manning the Pinetree
Line radar sites which form the backbone of NORAD's defence systems.
With tensions running high, Canada’s Prime Minister ignores his advisers and orders a contingent of Canadian
Rangers, accompanied by a regular army sergeant, to attack the Soviets. He knows his generals think him foolhardy, but he
is also aware that one Canadian Ranger in particular could effect the outcome. Conflicts arise above and below the ocean's
surface as HMCS Margaree takes on submarines from two nations. In the air, 416 Squadron Voodoos carry nuclear weapons on an
interception which could explode into WW-III. The action
moves quickly and putting this book down will not be easy.
Conflict in the North Reviews:
Editor of Seawaves Magazine:
This book is the second effort to date from Nova Scotian Daniel Little on novels based on the Canadian military.
Not since the 1970s efforts of Richard Rohmer has this been done. While Rohmer's work started well and later descended to
we certainly hope Mr Little continues to improve. With his second book, improvement is certainly evident.

What an EXCELLENT novel. Not taking away from “Unheard Unseen”,
but this one should be in the excel category…..
The Reality versus Fiction aspect is great, the plot is fantastic,
and the flow between Subs/Destroyer
to Rangers/Spetsnaz to Ottawa/Moscow reads like a Tom Clancy Novel.
my son even likes the Canadians taking the cup.
GO CANADA GO!
