So, in that I believe the author did a good job.
JJ
In my experience, an important aspect of the genre is that the militaries in the story all behave like we'd like them to, not how they too often do.
James M. Folks
This was written by one who is familiar with Navy life at sea.

Format: Paperback
The story gives the reader the feeling that they are sharing in an actual experience. The author speaks from the authority that personal events in the past would engender. I found it smacked of authenticity, and wondered just how much of the story was autobiographical.

A good fictional story line...Having been aboard a deisel boat

in 1955 and almost "rammed" at night by a non-friendly ship

resulting in a "battle dive" and silent running for almost a

day..I can relate to efforts of the author... a most enjoyable

book and an easy read.

As an ex Navy CT(R) (1965-1969) I did enjoy this FICTIONAL story. It brought back mary memories of that long ago time with the Naval Security Group, I would have prefered this book to be longer as there were many things to write about. The author is correct about the party times, but seems to want to dwell this more and anything.
I remember a lot of the good things we did, and I thank the author for his effort with this book, but we were not all drunken bar hopping spooks.

Format: Paperback
Well written fictional drama about what it was like at the cold war pinnacle of activity of the Naval Security group.

Offers a detailed explanation of the organization and their primary mission.

It is obviously based on the author's direct experience and some detailed research; enough to make it interesting to those without first hand experience.

The author does not mention the NSG communications facility in the Phillipines which would have played a role in the drama in the Pacific Ocean.

For those of us who have "been there and done that," this book is a real joke. Not that missions fairly similar to those in the book didn't happen. They did, but they and the people involved were a lot better organized and prepared. Because of all the inane mistakes in the book, I would assume it was written by someone who was not involved, but probably spent a lot of time in bars listening to loose (and generally inaccurate) talk from some sailors involved somehow with these missions. Too bad. This book should have been edited by someone in the Navy who knew what was going on. It could have been an interesting look back to the things we did in those Cold War days, now that so much of it is being declassified.

Format: Paperback
The book will hold the attendion of any person drawn to military stories and history. It portrays a small portion of the goings on behind the "Cold War". You follow the exploits of individuals in the Intelligence Community which is usually kept very, very SECRET. Buy it! Read It! and appreciate their exploits and how they kept and keep Our Freedom for US.

This was written by one who is familiar with Navy life at sea. It held my interest from the moment I started until I completed it. Contains a most unexpected ending.
Well done, Tony!!
Sequel????
