    Description

    For a moment Wilson froze and looked at the white-helmeted pilot who sat high on the nose of the colossal fighter. Across the small void, he saw the pilot's eyes peer over his mask. Dark, chilling eyes. Wilson kicked right rudder to slide closer and jam any chance for a bandit gunshot. When the bandit pulled all the way over, almost on its back but in control, he cursed in frustration at what he knew was coming next. The hostile fighter reversed over the top in a negative-g maneuver, his nose tracking down on Wilson like a falling sledgehammer in slow motion. Horrified, Wilson realized he faced an imminent snapshot. With the little air speed he had, he inverted his Hornet to avoid the attack. His aircraft still rolling, Wilson saw that the monster had another weapon at its disposal.

    "A page turner... Raven One makes a major contribution to aircraft carrier history during difficult deployments. The author has skillfully woven the intense combat maneuvers with a fascinating human interest story." (Naval Historical Foundation)

    Fantastic Read for Military/Aviation Enthusiasts!

    I listened to this book in its entirety and it genuinely made my commutes to work the highlight of the day. It is very well performed and written, crafted very well for the military thriller market. That is to say, do not expect to be reading the greatest thing ever written ever, just extremely good by military fiction standards.

    The scenarios are grounded in reality, and while at the edge of plausible sometime, are not outside the realm of possibility. There are many low-rent military thrillers out there that you could waste your time with. Captain Miller's books here, especially this one, out-classes all of them.

    The story takes places around the Persian Gulf, showing all sides from command, to the pilots, to the opponents. There is enough characterization and emotional investment that the events of the story have an impact, but it does not shy away from the hard military enthusiast details.

    That said, it is very much technical in that aspect, as the happenings with F/A-18s and other aircraft are declared with stunning accuracy and detail. But it would read as a long string of acronyms or techno-aviation jargon for those uninitiated. To really dig into this book, you should be probably have some knowledge of military aviation.

    To hear a voice actor paraphrase and use onomatopoeia imitating the bleeps and jingles inside a cockpit is something to behold, and done very well.

    In closing, this is a great listen and a great book - For those into military aviation fiction. Fully recommended, if that is your area of interest.

    Excellent

    This was an excellent book. Both the story and audio performance was 5 star. As a Naval Aviator the depictions of squadron life left me with viseral feelings and we're exceptionally authentic. The combat is well edited and all very plausible. Highly recommend.

    Written and Performed very Well!

    Being on an aircraft carrier in 1993-95 in the gulf this book was like reliving my time onboard. I loved every bit of it and could almost smell the jet exhaust. Well done and excited for a 3 book series!!!

    Great Insights Into Naval Aviation

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Unfortunately, there were times I had to rewind and relisten to certain parts because I got lost in the midst of overwhelming naval jargon. As an former army guy, who spent time working with the navy, it brought back some memories - both good and bad. The story is engaging as he weaves just the right amount of action to keep my interest and now I find I want to know more about Lt Cdr Wilson - so I guess I'm buying the next book in the series.

    great story and great first hand knowledge

    Kevin's knowledge of naval aviation is shared in a way that both combat veterans can relate to and the common non military person can enjoy. nice work!

    I thought I was there

    Amazing story and one of the best books I ever read. As a retired Naval Officer I felt every emotion and experience of the characters in this compelling story. The authors level of detail was on point. I went from laughter to tears throughout listening to this well narrated book and hated knowing I was near the end because I wanted the story to continue. Bravo Zulu Captain Miller. I can’t wait to start your next book

    You Are There

    Held my interest from the first few pages to the last word. The descriptions of the human interplay between sailors and the war fighting events was extraordinary. Gave the listener the fly on the wall seat to every event. Recommend highly to anyone.

    For people that are plane nuts!!

    Loved this book. Just bought DCS World and the F-18 Hornet then listened to this audiobook when learning the simulator plane's systems. Couldn't have made it more immersive for me both in the book and the simulator. Now I'm looking forward to flying the F-18 well enough to do the Raven One campaign!
