Thoroughly enjoyed the story line. I'm a non-navy guy, so had to get used to the lingo. But once I did, I felt like I was one of the guys in the Ready Room or Cockpit. Characters were well developed. Bad guys made you dislike them. Good guys made you love 'em. Built good tension and suspense.
While inclusive of the camaraderie, exhilaration, and triumph of Naval flight ops, the author includes for realities sake the less appreciated aspects of deployment such as separation from home and loved ones, misapplied and undeserved authority, life errors, fears to be faced and death of friends and allies. In this mixture, reflective of scenes oft repeated in both geography and time, the reader watches and listens to events relating to a warrior whose subservience to God, disciplined practices, his duty and his compatriots, in a representation of what we as US citizens pray is the composition and demeanor of our men at arms. The author is either intimately familiar with the subject matter in its entirety, or has one amazing imagination. In either case, I'll be anticipating more from this talented and follow-worthy teller of tales.
