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.
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 of...happened. Overall, it felt very anticlimactic.
Duty-Honor-Country...enjoyable techno-military-thriller along the lines of "Red Storm Rising"...compelling characters...plenty 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.
