This is the third thriller of Hart and I think his best upto now. The narrator is somewhat annoying, but on the other hand is wiht is accent close to the places and cirumstances that Hart describes.
I loved this one and hated it when it ended. The exceptional story of the Destroyers in the Leyte Gulf naval battle is told whith all its horrors and heroism. The story is balanced (american vs americans, officers vs seamen) and well build up.
I liked the Devil and the White City a lot and this one is even better. Although the story is less gruesome in some ways, it's still a chilling acount of what happened to Galveston. It's a good and excellent read.
Excellent story, well researched, ecxellent read. You cannot help wonder, what would have happened if this extraordinary man had lived today.
The book tells the story of the raid on the Osirak reactor in Iraq in 1982.
The story itself reads like a thriller. The build up of the suspens is very good. You know the outcome but still you want to read the whole story.
