It ranks in the top 3 among the audiobooks I have listened to.
The attack on the Carrier Fleet was my favorite
I like his narration of the story, how he gets into portraying the characters.
Clancy was always the best. a better man for a better world. I wish I could've met the man before his passing. He will be missed. My tribute, I guess.
Tom Clancy reigned supreme as the king of military thrillers starting with The Hunt for Red October. This book got passed around my division on the USS Jouett. We would sit around and critic mistakes he made in the Russian order of battle for the Navy parts. Giving this a listen after so long was good. The story is exciting almost all the way through. It just seems the writing was as good as I remember. I still enjoyed it tremendously and would reccomend it to anyone looking for a good read.
Yes, in a couple of years, it is a great action book with many scenarios coming together at once.
Yes, great plot even if it is older, it could still happen today.
the inflections in his voice were great..they brought the characters to life.
There are many flaws and skips in the audio. If I had not read the book several years ago, I wouldn't have known what was being said.
The narrator has obviously not spent any time in the military as evidenced by the several misspeaks in verbiage. Ex, a 'MK' whatever torpedo is pronounced 'Mark.' This is just one of several glitches.
Overall, a great book, but only because of the author.
This is Clancy at its best. I think it gives the best possible scenario of a shooting as late in the 80s. This book is taught in military tactics classes and it's the best look into the way to fight using both sides' tactics and strategies.
Lesson one, never ever underestimate you enemy
Lesson two, never ignore single pieces of data. Taken as a whole, the pieces give you a clear picture.
Lesson three, a retreat is not a defeat.
The narrator does a wonderful job pacing the book enhancing his dictation during combat scenes.
If you're on the fence about this one, get off of it and give it a listen. You won't regret it.
