Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An F-14 aviator takes his readers into the cockpits, ready-rooms, and bunkrooms of today's Navy to show what it's like to fight in a time of so-called peace. From the opening chapter where a Tomcat fighter squadron's commanding officer botches an intercept of a hostile Iranian F-4 to the final uplifting scene, this novel reveals the inner workings of the military as only an insider can. It is a thriller without an airshow groupie's pretense, a fighter pilot's story as honest as it is riveting. The action is gripping and authentic, yet it punctuates rather than drives the plot. Seldom has fiction been so real. Best-selling novelist Stephen Coonts describes the author as Tom Clancy crossed with Joseph Heller, his book as a refreshing twist on the military thriller.

Synopsis:

Punk's War reveals the inner workings of the U.S. Navy as only an insider can. An authentic and riveting thriller, it is a highly acclaimed novel of a fighter pilot's experiences in the era just before 9/11. As the U.S. military currently enters another post-conflict period, the themes of leadership during crisis and accomplishing the mission make Punk's War more relevant than ever.
