Title: Blaze of Glory
Author: Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky
Pages: 379
Year: 2010
Publisher: B&H Publishing Group
My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
While there is no series title to the four books that are written by this author duo, the books are sequential in time. There are several characters that carry over from book to book. The missions are vastly different in each book, but a lot of the characters remain the same. They should be read in order beginning with Certain Jeopardy, Blaze of

While reading Blaze of Glory, I developed a new appreciation for our military men. Im thankful for the review copy, which gave me a glimpse into the hearts and minds of the men and women who risk their lives so that our country can be safe and free.

Blaze of Glory gives the reader a fascinating, suspenseful and realistic look at military operations from an insider’s point of view. I was clueless about the preparation for these top secret missions. Sergeant Major Eric Moyer is the leader of this

Just like the the first book. I like how Struecker gets PTSD in the story line without sounding like a broken record and the guys at the end still joke about it but are concerened for him. This book was a bit more graphic than the first one but it still brings war to light and show the dirtiness of it without the total gore. It was a bit far fetched the POTUS had the J.J.'s wedding on at the white house.. HMMM yet that wouldn't happen.

Special Ops: The Unsung Heroes of Tosay

Special ops teams are closer than brothers. Trust in each other is paramount. A highly dangerous op on two continents with a new man on the team suffering from PTSD makes a difficult mission even dicier. Five stars--a definite, stay-up-all-night page turner.

Sgt Eric and his Special Ops group, the mission is an Egyptian terrorist, and the connection with female suicides. Then another plot of eliminating the head of US and Mexico. Two cases can they handled and succeed, fast paced action to the end. Good series for readers.

Very exciting novel combining military fiction with Christian fiction. In this series you see how Christian military can be a benefit to military situations.
Diane Flemming
Interesting plot and characters. Plenty of action w/o gore or profanity. No explicit sex. A definite Christian message that's not in your face, so shouldn't turn off any reader.

Sergent First Class Jerry Zinsser was a decorated hero, who after rehabilitation, was assigned to Sergent Major Eric Moyer's team as his new surveillance specialist. Moyer's Special Operations unit has been assigned to track down an Egyptian terrorist that uses women suicide bombers to fulfill his "contract" with a Mexican drug Lord. Zinsser, who struggles with hidden demons, tries his best to be an asset to the team, but instead, may put the whole team at risk.

As with the first book of the series, the book is a military procedural thriller. Every page is filled with details about the operations of an Army special operations team--presumably accurate, given the author's military background. That doesn't mean it's boring, or that there's no character development. The plot is relatively simple and fast-moving, with a couple surprises here and there. The events and characters are all plausible and realistically drawn. The story successfully avoids traps ...more

A string of female suicide bombers sends Sergeant Eric Moyer and his Special Operations team overseas to stop the bombings and to thwart a possible attempt to assassinate several heads-of-state. Thus begins the non-stop action in "Blaze of Glory" by Major Jeff Struecker and Alton Gansky.

In Struecker’s and Gansky’s sophomore effort together, they succeed in penning a book even better than their first. Not only does the reader experience continuous action, but the authors fleshed out their

Here is another excellent collaboration between Alton Gansky and Major Struecker. At first it looks to be another battle against radical jihadists, but there are some twists and turns that give this story another dimension. JJ, the main character is strong again in this one, but not as much the centerpiece as he was in the first one that these two authors put out. Here is another good example of how people look at how we live closer than what we say and how that can be and is often as important ...more

This is a Military special ops action thriller- it was really good and clean, with the exception of violence. This is the second book from this author and I recommend reading "Certain Jeopardy" first because most of the Characters are the same and you really get to know them in the first book. I really like this author.

Wow ! What a thrill ride !

Well done, well written. Exciting, well paced. A look into a different possible terrorist attack that challenges the team. Nice to read with clean language. Nice touch on Christian values and prayer without being pushy.

Although the story took a little longer to really get going, once engaged it was unstoppable. Vivid detail kept the reader fully immersed in the action until the end, then it hooks you for the next book...

Loved it!

Gives me hope knowing that men like this, the few, are safeguarding freedom for the many. Assures me that America has more chapters left in her history, ones we will be proud of.

Wow!! Thoroughly enjoyed this fast-paced suspenseful story. Each character was fully developed - they got inside my head! The premise is very realistic and the action was heart-pounding. I'm already looking for more by these excellent authors.
I liked the book. However, I didn't like his descriptions of the scenes after the bombings. Too discriptive, too much information. I did like the book though, I've always liked special ops.

A nice series based on special ops group. It kept me interested from page 1 of book 1 to the last page of book 3.
