    Description

    Punk’s War reveals the inner workings of the US Navy as only an insider can. An authentic and riveting thriller, it is a highly acclaimed novel of a fighter pilot’s experience in the era just before 9/11. As the US military enters another postconflict period, the themes of leadership during crisis and accomplishing the mission make Punk’s War more relevant than ever.

    Excellent glimpse into Naval aviation

    Ward balances intricate nerdy details about the F-14 Tomcat and Naval operations as a whole with a cast of multidimensional characters that you love to root for (or against). Doesn't fall into the trap of getting so detailed that it sacrifices the plot as a whole.

    The narrator is also worth mentioning, he has a perfect voice for the cast and the subject matter. Sure, there was a mispronunciation here or there, but his tone is absolutely on point.

    All in all a fantastic effort, can't wait to listen to the next two novels as soon as they're released.

    Great detail an aviation buff can appreciate.

    I'm a huge fan of Ward Carroll's YouTube channel and Audible. So when he said his books were available on Audible I downloaded it that day and I don't regret it one bit. I look forward to the next book.

    Believable

    Not over top. Good action descriptions. An excellent story. Ward Carroll should write more. It keeps your interest.

    I think I served with these guys

    The entire gang is there: the douchebag careerist, the passed over old hats, the new guy learning the ropes, and the O3s that make the mission happen. VF-104 is the quintessential flying squadron.

    Enjoyable!

    Ward Carroll is an excellent story teller.
    He walks the reader through an intimate and often exiting portrayal of life as a Tomcat pilot onboard an aircraft carrier.
    Ninety percent of my reading is non-fiction.
    But once in a while I discover a novel that rings true to my practical and emotional sensibilities.
    I am looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.

    Gripping and Organic

    The story was exciting, but not so dramatic or fantastic that it seemed too far fetched from what seems real. The characters are well written and the narrator does an amazing job of bringing them to life.

    Glad to finally see this in audiobook form.

    happy with narrator

    I saw another review noting a disappointment in the narrator. I don't share that view, I thought it was excellent. I loved the storyline, it's my first time experiencing this book, and I'm happy with it. Can't wait for book 2.

    Thanks Ward. I've been wanting an audiobook for a long time. Two thumbs up.

    Very Entertaining

    This was a surprising good “listen”. I became aware of this series by watching Ward Carroll’s YOUTUBE channel. He was a back seater in a F14 Tomcat and has many good stories about his time in the Navy, which he tells very well.

    I liked the mix of seriousness and humor in the story. The scene of the high level teleconference with the SECDEF, a whole host of flag rank officer and the carrier crew and the problems with teleconference technology was too true and priceless! I also liked the way the author sets up the conflict amongst his characters and then how most of them were able to put their conflicts aside to accomplish the mission.

    The flying sequence successfully conveyed the “pucker factor” of the aircrews who find themselves in very challenging situations. The author excels in describing the “turning and burning” fighter combat.

    The narration was good and added to the story.

    Over all, it was very good listen and I found myself regretting it being over too soon. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a realistic Naval Aviation thriller.
