    Michael Havel was flying over Idaho en route to the holiday home of his passengers when the plane's engines inexplicably died, forcing a less than perfect landing in the wilderness. And, as Michael leads his charges to safety, he begins to realize that the engine failure was not an isolated incident.

    Overall

    A fantastic book, well written, well read and a brilliant concept. All charactors and storylines are believeable with a hint of imagination and fantasy. Well researched . Please more of the same. S.M Sterling is one of the best Si-Fi writers around. This series as as good as the Terminator2 series. Sterling is what Ipods were made for!!

    As a new plague related to the rabies virus infects millions, America recalls its military forces from around the world to safeguard hospitals and other vital buildings. Many of the victims become rabid and violent but are easily controlled—that is, until so many are infected that they begin to run amok, spreading slaughter and disease.

    excellent story and narration, almost none stop action. characters do tend to get lost as to who's who, but doesnt distract from an excellent story, well worth a credit

    It is 1941. British Command has surrendered to the Nazis. Churchill has been executed, the King is in the Tower, and the SS are in Whitehall. For nine months Britain has been occupied, and it's now a blitzed, depressed, and dingy country. But in Hitler's Britain, although detection is a little different, murder is still murder.

    In August of 1914, the British ship Endurance set sail for the South Atlantic. In October, 1915, still half a continent away from its intended base, the ship was trapped, then crushed in the ice. For five months, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men, drifting on ice packs, were castaways in one of the most savage regions of the world.

  • The Last Stand of Fox Company: A True Story of U.S. Marines in Combat

    The Last Stand of Fox Company is a fast-paced and gripping account of heroism and self-sacrifice in the face of impossible odds. The authors have conducted dozens of firsthand interviews with the battle's survivors, and they narrate the story with the immediacy of such classic accounts of single battles as Guadalcanal Diary, Pork Chop Hill, and Black Hawk Down.

    Stephen says: "Outstanding story, poor narration"
    "last stand"
    Overall

    brilliant story , well narrated , worth a credit, agree with others that a little confusing at times wih location but doesnt disract too much from story.

    Why not? After all, no one had ever done it before. It would be one of the longest of all overland journeys, from the English Channel to Singapore. Several expeditions had already tried. Some had got as far as the deserts of Persia; a few had even reached the plains of India. But no one had managed to go on from there, over the jungle-clad mountains of Assam and across northern Burma to Thailand and Malaya.

    James says: "Fascinating"
    "worth a credit"
    Overall

    a very good book no doubt, especially for anyone with an interest in overland journeys however the poor narration by the paricipants (now elderly gentlemen) spoil the book somewhat.

    In the dark and uncertain days of 1941 and 1942, when Rommel's tanks were sweeping towards Suez, a handful of daring raiders were making history for the Allies. They operated deep behind the German lines, often driving hundreds of miles through the deserts of North Africa. They hid by day and struck by night, destroying aircraft, blowing up ammunition dumps, derailing trains, and killing many times their own number.

    Alec says: "Makes you feel like you're there"
    "best book ive downloaded so far"
    Overall

    the phantom major is to date ther best audible book ive downloaded in the last 3 years. not just for SAS fans but thoroughly entertaining for all. the narrator is excellent give convincing accents to most charactors. a facinating true story with a real british stiff upper lip feel. worth downloading even if only a passing interest in WW2 for sheer entertainment
