    Red November is filled with hair-raising, behind-the-scenes stories that take you deep beneath the surface and into the action of the Cold War. Few know how close the world has come to annihilation better than the warriors who served America during the tense, 45-year struggle known as the Cold War. Yet for decades, their work has remained shrouded in secrecy.

    "Red November a disappointment"
    Overall

    I had hoped for an exciting and thought provoking account of the cold war beneath the waves. Instead I received a dose of rather lame conspiracy theories, uneven story telling and little in the way of new information on this important period of time. IMHO poorly written and unsatisfying.

    Flyboys is the true story of young American airmen who were shot down over Chichi Jima. Eight of these young men were captured by Japanese troops and taken prisoner. Another was rescued by an American submarine and went on to become president. The reality of what happened to the eight prisoners has remained a secret for almost 60 years.

    Story

    I found this book to be a disappointment. This is less of a story about WWII pilots and their experiences and more of a heavy-handed, anti-war story. While there is a place for that perspective, it was not the story about WWII pilots that I wanted and thought I was purchasing.

    Story
    (3055)

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Joseph says: "Give me more! Loved it!"
    "A good read"

    If you are a Clancy fan, you will enjoy the ride. Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job of narration.
