  • Viper Pilot: The Autobiography of One of America's Most Decorated Combat Pilots

    Story
    (197)

    Sure to rank as one of the greatest aviation memoirs ever written, Viper Pilot is an Air Force legend's thrilling eyewitness account of modern air warfare. From 1986 to 2006, Lt. Col. Dan Hampton was a leading member of the Wild Weasels, the elite Air Force fighter squadrons whose mission is recognized as the most dangerous job in modern air combat. Weasels are the first planes sent into a war zone, flying deep behind enemy lines purposely seeking to draw fire from surface-to-air missiles and artillery. They must skillfully evade being shot down - and then return to destroy the threats, thereby making the skies safe for everyone else to follow.

    Frances says: "Fast and Furious"
    "Good, Modern view from the air."

    I love the old WWII aircraft stories. Viper brings those stories into present time. I enjoyed the story and learning the differences between then and now. Some things are still the same, but not much.

    Story

    A larger-than-life hero with a towering personality, Robin Olds was a graduate of West Point and an inductee in the National College Football Hall of Fame for his All-American performance for Army. In World War II, Olds quickly became a top fighter pilot and squadron commander by the age of 22—a double ace with twelve aerial victories. But it was in Vietnam where the man became a legend.

    R. A. Frank says: "Top Notch Audiobook"
    "Real History!"
    Overall

    I've listened to dozens of book on Audible over the past 3 years and never wrote a review. But, I just had to take a moment and say how much I really enjoyed this book! Robin Olds was quite a character and a realist when it came to getting the job done. I would have loved to seen him fly! Thank you to the Olds family for sharing his life with the rest of us. Awesome book!

    Story
    (540)

    In 1991, acting on a tip from a local fisherman, two scuba divers discovered a sunken German U-boat, complete with its crew of 60 men, not too far off the New Jersey coast. The divers, realizing the momentousness of their discovery, began probing the mystery. Over the next six years, they became expert and well-traveled researchers, taught themselves German, hunted for clues in Germany, and constructed theories corrective of the history books, all in an effort to identify this sunken U-boat and its crew.

    Douglas says: "GRIPPING!"
    "Totally submerged... In the story."
    Overall

    Simply awesome! Wonderfully written, expertly told. I understand a movie was made based on Shadow Divers. I'll never see it. The words that spoke to me created the best possible movie screen... in my head. Can't recreate that.
