Publisher's Summary

For a moment Wilson froze and looked at the white-helmeted pilot who sat high on the nose of the colossal fighter. Across the small void, he saw the pilot's eyes peer over his mask. Dark, chilling eyes. Wilson kicked right rudder to slide closer and jam any chance for a bandit gunshot. When the bandit pulled all the way over, almost on its back but in control, he cursed in frustration at what he knew was coming next. The hostile fighter reversed over the top in a negative-g maneuver, his nose tracking down on Wilson like a falling sledgehammer in slow motion. Horrified, Wilson realized he faced an imminent snapshot. With the little air speed he had, he inverted his Hornet to avoid the attack. His aircraft still rolling, Wilson saw that the monster had another weapon at its disposal.

What the Critics Say

"A page turner...Raven One makes a major contribution to aircraft carrier history during difficult deployments. The author has skillfully woven the intense combat maneuvers with a fascinating human interest story." (Naval Historical Foundation)

    Story
    "Great story!"

    While inclusive of the camaraderie, exhilaration, and triumph of Naval flight ops, the author includes for realities sake the less appreciated aspects of deployment such as separation from home and loved ones, misapplied and undeserved authority, life errors, fears to be faced and death of friends and allies. In this mixture, reflective of scenes oft repeated in both geography and time, the reader watches and listens to events relating to a warrior whose subservience to God, disciplined practices, his duty and his compatriots, in a representation of what we as US citizens pray is the composition and demeanor of our men at arms. The author is either intimately familiar with the subject matter in its entirety, or has one amazing imagination. In either case, I'll be anticipating more from this talented and follow-worthy teller of tales.
