Coonts knows how to write and build suspense . . . a natural storyteller. (The New York Times Book Review)
The Sea Witch is a triple play of classic Stephen Coonts tales: No one writes more forcefully of warriors whose missions and dreams take flight. It's always a treat to have Coonts in print again, but this book's one of a kind. (Ralph Peters, New York Times bestselling author of Cain at Gettysburg and The Officers' Club)
"Great entertainment comes in threes. Stephen Coonts, the master of the military suspense thriller, delivers you three nights of fevered page-turning in three terrific novellas, set in three amazing periods of American history. Don't miss it." (William Martin, New York Times bestselling author of Annapolis and The Lincoln Letter)
Stephen Coonts has an absolute lock on the secret of good story telling: He knows interesting people in harm's way so well that the reader has no choice but to care for them. And in the case of The Sea Witch and other stories in this fine collection, it's obvious he knows airplanes just a well. My only disappointment was that the stories ended--I wanted more. (David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of Abyss)

That said, if you don't have the paperback series, this is a neat book of three very good long short stories.
WWII- terrible story development with an odd style of writing which switch the main character back and forth between several people but maintained the first character as the narrator. Plot lines kills off all the characters but one and he is not even a main character in the plot development. At the end of the story I felt like I had wasted my time reading it
WWI- Best story of the three. Portrayed an american pilot attached to british flying unit at the front. Story narrative gave you a sense of what it was like to fly in those very fragile aircraft and it is a wonder that any of those pilots survived the war.
Modern Day- anti-terrorist mission- Highly unlikely scenario involving a V-22 and retired force recon marine sniper. Having helped design the V-22 at Bell Helicopter, I just could not get past the inaccurate details of the story.
