  • Brought back a lot of memories, both good and bad. Loved being reminded of the good men and women I served with during my USAF career, but hated being reminded of the politics and pettiness of too many in leadership positions (Not 'leaders', simply warm bodies in leadership positions).


  • Excellent readinglike most of the reviews it was hard to it this book down. I highly recommend it. Great reading anytime.


  • Terrific, Authentic Warbird Story!Hopefully non-veterans and non-profits appreciate the authentic action-packed scenes and descriptions throughout this riveting, action-packed story. Despite the frustration of politics and egos of "wanna-bees," the battles continued and those who earned fought were recognised. Excellent aviator warrior story.


  • Read it with a friend's recommendation. It wasn't bad, per say, but it wasn't good either. Certainly not as exciting as my friend lead me to believe. Not to mention the ending just kind ofhappened. Overall, it felt very anticlimactic.


  • A fun story. Very much reminiscent of Red Storm Rising, Team Yankee, Sword Point, etc. Great characters. They weren't just letters on the page, although as a former Army enlisted man, I would have appreciated a little more fleshing of the enlisted personnel of the 45th TFW.


  • Richard Herman's first novel featuring F4s (Herman flew F4s, so he knows the aircraft) in combat against Iranian forces. Very well written and as much character driven as aerial combat driven. Fans of aerial combat scenes will enjoy this one.


  • 2nd time I have read this book and it remains one of my very favorite Military Aviation thrillers. His character development is very good and I can't wait to watch them grow as I read all of his books in order.


  • Duty-Honor-Countryenjoyable techno-military-thriller along the lines of "Red Storm Rising".lling charactersenty of action during a confrontation in the Mid-East



  • A provoking reminder of my 23 years in the Air force from 1960-1983 and my two tours supporting F105 Aircraft Maintenance in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.


  • A great book, one of my favorites. I read it when it first came out, and recently revisited it. As fun and as timely as it was 20 plus years ago.
