Publisher's Summary

It is 1964. The Vietnam War has begun to escalate, its new style of battle demanding new weapons and tactics and men who can use them. Overnight, it seems, the U.S. Army must scramble to create its first-ever Air Assault Division, a force critical to its chances of success, but the obstacles facing it are staggering: untrained men, mysteriously failing aircraft, vicious inter-service rivalries.

As the hostilities increase, the warriors and the women who love them are swept into the struggle, their personal and professional lives twisting and intertwining as they race against time — and the fortunes of war.

The redundant one.

W.E.B. is getting redundant. This book and the previous book in the series run parallel and are too often redundant. Although both are excellent, I would have preferred a single, longer book. Or, two books covering all the action in sequence.

Another great one!

I have loved this series immensely, though a few of the books more than others, and this one is one of my favorites. A wonderful main character and story line. I hated for it to end!

Great Stories by a master story teller

Although the reader does an admirable job, his general lack of famialirity with military jargon takes away some of the impact...For instance, referring to a full colonel in the Army as a Zero to Six as opposed to an Oh Six (in reference to their pay grade O-6, an Officer, Sixth pay grade) is bad enough, but when pronouncing abbreviations like the Tube Launched Optically Tracked Wire Guided missile as Tee Oh Double You rather than TOW, it's a little frustrating for military veterans with say more than a month in service.

Aviation--Helicopter?

#8 of 9, The Aviators is about development of Army aviation. There's also some ops from 1964...hmmmm. On to #7--intertwined with #8.

A rehash of Book 7 and a preview of book 9

This is a waste. If you listen to book 7 and book 9 you can skip this one as it just contains the same material but book 9 carries the story forward more
