book was about a Chinese secret project that was creating military strategists by raising the children in a virtual environment and using simulations. Japan is resurgent and butts heads with china. China unleashes the project on Japan and this allows the teens a window into the real world. They engineer their escape using us fleet that they manipulate into going into combat area. Some of the names of the kids were cat, cry-baby, possibly snake, and possibly joker. Written by a serving u.s naval officer if I remember. Maybe about 2012? Not sure. Been trying to find the book again.
