Hidden in the Nevada desert is America's most advanced aerospace-weapons-testing facility. Dreamland is the place where the nation's top minds come to develop artillery and aircraft that push beyond the cutting edge. And where the Air Force's top guns come to test them, on the front lines of a new era in warfare.
The fiasco of a spy's infiltration has the Pentagon looking for an excuse to close Dreamland down. To clean up the mess, and save Dreamland from the congressional chopping block, Lt. Colonel Tecumseh "Dog" Bastian is sent in.
He's just the guy to shake things up, and does so when a situation erupts in Somalia. Into a hotter-than-hot war zone, he sends his own daughter, the pilot of a Megafortress bomber, with a high-tech, unmanned flight system that could make or break the future of Dreamland.

A lot like Tom Clancy
If you like Tom Clancy you'll love it. Every weapon is cataloged, no alpha designation get unused.
Leave out all the excruciating details of weapons' detailed names and just use the real names of things instead of an alphabet soup of mnemonics. The ABC dropped the Xyz123x12 cartridges into his XXX-23 and fired. What? Seriously does the author think I can or want to remember every alphanumeric he drops?
When people were actually talking to one another with something to say.
While I normally read Dale Brown easily, this one was difficult. IT was so full of acronyms and technical detailed weaponry descriptions that I wanted to scream. Also his characters were all very macho, even the women. It seemed that the characters were being rushed in and about with no sense of reality or real character. They were all in exactly the right place and time, highly unlikely plotting, all tough guys (and gals) and the enemy were fools. In an attempt to make it seem topical, America is at odds with Iranian Muslims in cahoots with Somali pirates and the heroes (all of them) come to save the day.It channels Tom Clancy with "See Jane Run" characterizations.

Love Dale Brown, I can't believe he wrote this.
