Publisher's Summary

In The Aviator, Navy fighter pilot Jack Knapp reports to the aircraft carrier Independence for his first deployment in the Pacific. As a “nugget”, he must learn the ropes and gain acceptance among the tight-knit tribe of the squadron called the Gargoyles. Soon, war erupts, and everything he learned will be tested in high-speed aerial combat in the Philippine Sea and over Taiwan.

In The Warfighter, Jack returns to Independence, which is now bound for war games in South Korea. Once aboard, he must contend with a tough new commander and a failed romance. When a series of mishaps and miscalculations results in the outbreak of war in the Koreas, he finds himself back in combat with even greater stakes involving nuclear weapons.

The Aviator series is the tale of an ordinary man doing an extraordinary job in sometimes impossible circumstances. It’s about survival, combat, the stories we tell about war, and the debt that people in the military owe each other and those they lose. Gritty and realistic, the Aviator series takes you onto an aircraft carrier and into the cockpit of an F/A-18 Super Hornet in incredible battles with the existence of nations and the global order at stake.

Quick pace

I liked it but did not love it.
This was my third, after Armor and Crash Dive series. I missed the dialogues frim those series, which were mostly replaced by monologues from the main character.
Still fast paced, insight into military tactics and mindset, but not as endearing as the WWII series.

Very good

The author creates a fantastic group of characters. I found myself chastising the main character for not seeing the lie that was obviously being told to him in “War Fighter”.

Tragedy and humor are interspersed in the story. Very hard to stop listening.

Narration is top notch.

outstanding at every level. !

Outstanding story. Narrated exceptionally. The almost playful tone added another layer of entertainment I wasn't expecting.
