Welcome to Battlefield America
When murderous bands of militiamen begin roaming the western United States and attacking government agencies, it will take a dedicated group of the nation's finest and toughest civilian airmen to put an end to the homegrown insurgency. U.S. Air Force Lieutenant-General Patrick McLanahan vows to take to the skies to join the fight, but when his son, Bradley, also signs up, they find themselves caught in a deadly game against a shadowy opponent.
With A Time for Patriots, the New York Times bestselling master of the modern thriller Dale Brown brings the battle home to explore a terrifying possibility - the collapse of the American Republic.

Seems this book was written for someone who does some flying. There is more info about planes and jets than substance to the story. It started out fine but too much time is spent with the characters discussing their flight training and past flight experiences. The story gets lost.
I wouldn't really recommend this book. The Story line is meandering and weak, the reader is so-so, definitely not Dick Hill or Scott Bricks caliber.
You might want to spend your credits on something else
I think that my headline says it all. I'd all but given up on Dale Brown, but A Time For Patriots has brought back my faith in him. Worth a read or a listen, enjoyable story.
This was a very boring story. I was so happy when it was over
the story was not compelling
This is my first time experiencing Mr. Brown's work but I must say it probably won't be my last. I really enjoyed the story and the characters and would like to continue to follow them. Some of the plot twists were a little telegraphed but not so much so that they hindered my enjoyment of the story.
Mr. Dufris did a wonderful job of bringing the characters to life. I would listen to another tale narrated by him.
It is always good to visit with old friends, even when they have fallen on hard times. Overall, it was a good time, but I was concerned to see some of my friends acting completely criminal, on American soil. It was entirely too frivolous and out of character.
Always willing and eager. Dale Brown is great writer and is always believable.
William Dufris is always excellent. he has his characters down cold and keeps them consistent from book to book. I narrate Audiobooks and this is one of the harder things to do.His timing and intensity are always spot on for the pace of the book he is reading. With Dale Brown, he keeps it tense and dramatic, where it is needed. On books, like Harry Harrison's Stainless Steel Rat, he is perfectly over the top.I have made a special effort to select Audiobooks that he has narrated, even if they are new to me.
Not this one. This book does not showcase all of the best reasons for why I love this series.
It is sad to see (or hear) characters departing from their values for less than stellar reasons, and for well-established characters to be eliminated by less than world-class villains.
This is a combination of a boys book about the Civil Air Patrol and some convoluted anarchist plot. It died not hang together at all.
Rewrite the plot in a more believable format.
All of his voices sounded like disgruntled teenagers, even the older ones. The rancher's voice was just lame. The boy sounded like he was 12 not 18.
All the technical stuff about the CAP. I think he should have scrapped the whole thing and started over.
I have read several of Dan Brown's novels and found them to be, at least, entertaining, although I have never rated him as high as Baldacci or some others. This one, however was forgettable and just plain dumb.
A more realistic story line
The narration could have been for a valley girl type story
certainly not worth the price paid, even as deeply discounted as it was.
