I am a big fan of Mr. Herman... however this book seemed to be more of a plug for feminizim than anything else. The story made good reference to past characters that we loved, however we could have done without "Ripper". When we get to the section where the Major admits that he let a women in the squad because "Ripper" beat him in arm wrestling, well I am afraid that is where you lost me. She is described a the epitome of womanhood and the book turns her into an absolute Wonder Woman....sorry, I am sure it's just me but I got tired of her as the ULTIMATE woman and now beats men into submission in arm wrestling. I would have enjoyed more flying and facts on the A-10 than the other. If I was the commander I would have dumped my wife in a heartbeat for her as all men fall at her feet. Sorry, like I said I like a good war book.. and really don't enjoy it much when it is watered down this way.
There is a lot wrong with this story. Presumably, America fights a secret war in China; China allows this war to go on without protest; an old American POW prisoner is promoted to General to lead the Chinese fighters, and on .... Several hundred A 10 Warthog pilots and support people volunteer to leave the US Air Force to fight as private volunteers, etc. I would like to think you can't make this stuff up, but I would be wrong. On the plus side, the story moves fast, on the down side, this is a long book to read.
I would have enjoyed this story if it was more plausible, because I kept thinking this is real BS. I can't recommend this ro other readers unless they don't mind taking a reality leap of faith.
There are harrowing air and land battles from cover to cover and much more. The story is replete with richly developed intrigue involving an internal war in Southeast China and its consequences on Beijing's ultimate expansion plans to envelop Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Japan, and (a friendly) Vietnam. U.S. "volunteers" seize an opportunity to use this unrest to create a Chinese buffer state between Beijing and Southeast Asia. A misguided Senator (is there another type?) tries to oppose this for her own political benefit.
An excellent description of a potential involvement in a Chinese civil war. The point of view of the Chinese is well described and placed in context. Support of the civil conflict is expressed from two viewpoints: that of an American warrior extracted from MIA status in a Vietnamese prison; and that of an American National Security Agency Director. Add to that the involvement of a Congress-critter opposed to US policy for re-election sake and you have a very interesting story.
"Dark Wing" is the 3rd book in the Pontowski series. I bought the first two and fifth books from Amazon. I bought this book in hardcover for 1 penny and $3.99 shipping. Neat deal. My local library has book four and as I said I bought book 5 here on Amazon. This book is in the same class as Clancy, Dale Brown, and other military and political adventure writers who take the headlines and write realistic well researched tech thrillers of the first magnitude.
Living and working near the runway at Davis-Monthan air force base in Tucson, Arizona, I saw the A-10s when they were first deployed. They were very slow but mean looking. I loved them from Day one. Now a novel that gives the A-10 and their special pilots the respect they deserve. Very well written novel. Buy this book!
If there is one I have noticed it is that Richard Herman is quite predictable in his novels. While I like them you can be certain there will be a lot of profanity that leads the untrained reader into thinking that all military folks do is use profanity, are sexual deviates and that he is politically correct as there will always be more than one female hero in his stories.
Good story. I just don't like to be taught sexual coupeling . I bo't a military book to read and it's too bad the author thought he needed the intimate details of the characters to spice up his story.
