My husband retired with 30 years in the Navy. This is his favorite book.

A powerful scenario on the cutting edge of technology, Choosers of the Slain is set in the near future, in the icy waters of the desolate Antarctic. A lone British outpost is taken over by Argentinian forces. The world's only immediate defense is the USS Cunningham, America's first stealth warship. Its female commander is untested in battle. So begins the ultimate showdown - a white-knuckled adventure of new warriors and new weapons, as realistic as it is terrifying...

Commander Amanda Lee Garrett, USN. Mandy to her father, but Captain to all of those men and women serving on the Stealth Destroyer USS Cunningham. Quick witted, conscientious, strong, compassionate, and pretty; the traits she portrays draws her subordinates to her and brings out their best.

Their best is what is needed as the USS Cunningham is the first ship on station to prevent the Argentines from completing a land grab on the northern coast of Antarctica. Learning to defend her ship, stretch her crew and stores, AND keep the blockade in place until the fleet arrives is the first test of the Captain and her first in class stealth warship.

Having read the books James Cobb wrote about Amanda Garrett several years ago, I wondered if a re-read of book 1 would stand up to my memory. The result? This story rings true, while remaining wholly fiction. Even the technology stands up over the intervening years.

I will look to read the 3 other books James Cobb wrote in the series, and continue to wonder why he stopped. I recommend you take time to try this book.

The trouble with books on the cutting edge of technology is that they get old.
