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.
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.
