Chapter Summary

All missile bases had been on maximum alert since the capture of Base No. 1358 by a mysterious commando unit. In spite of this, another base had been seized without the least resistance or so it appeared no one knew how. Anyone with an acute sense of direction who saw it would have noticed that the missile was headed in the general direction of Beijing. Wang Feng had ordered the disarming of another base that was vulnerable to attack, by destroying the firing programme. It was just in time: a few hours later it too fell into the hands of Taiwan commandos. The CIA reports that eleven bases have been surrounded by rebel forces. Taiwan is reported to have paid South Africa more than 15 times its value for a submarine carrying 18 nuclear missiles with a range of 4,800 km, which is now speeding towards the China Sea.
