Great book, but you have to really be interested in the military to get a lot of the terminology. What is interesting is that is was published in 2000, but talks about declaring war against an individual terrorist and his followers rather than a sovereign nation. Also goes into the political/military consequences with the nation in which the terrorist is hiding. Almost seems like the author had a crystal ball.

The book was excellent. It had a very exciting plot. The book involved a lot of action and so it was very hard to put it down. It was written very well and so I just kept wanting to read it.

OK book. Highly technical descriptions of naval aviators doing their job.
Too much technical flight information for me.

I needed a book to read. This one was sitting around our house. It was sort of a military spy intrigue kinda thing. As long as they stuck to the political intrigue, I found it pretty engaging. The problem is they kept drifting into dogfight descriptions peppered with military acronyms that meant nothing to me. Perhaps if I'd taken notes from the beginning of the book I would have been okay, but that's more work than I'm willing to put in for a light read.

Ironically, by the time I finished the
