I ENJOYED READING THIS BOOK. I DID NOT CARE FOR THE ENDING WAS THE ONLY DOWN SIDE.
This was a really good mystery/thriller. I didn't want to put it down.
About a US nuclear submarine that is captured by China and how Navy SEALs come to the rescue. Non stop action.
Armed with stolen U.S. military technology, the Chinese are producing a frightening new breed of weaponry, led by the ICBM submarine Xia III, a vessel that just might be able to launch anuclear warhead across the Pacific Ocean and take out an American West Coast city.
National Security Advisder Admiral Arnold Morgan can't let that happen, and he dispatches the most stealthy hunter-killer submarine in the U.S. fleet, the 9,000-ton ultrasecret Seawolf, deep into the dark, forbidden waters of the South China Sea. But then the unthinkable happens: Seawolf collides with a Chinese destroyer and falls into enemy hands. A team of cunning Navy SEALs the biggest Special Forces assault group assembled since Vietnam is sent in to free the captive Seawolf crew and bring them home. The American Eagle confronts the Chinese Dragon with the balance of world power on the line. Faluire in not an option!
I believe this is the last story in the Silent Service series. A great story that will keep you turning the pages.
America's newest, fastest, quietist and most technologically advanced nuclular Submarine is disabled and then captured by the Red Chineese and towed into a port in China. The US must do something and they do or actually the Seals do. I really enjoyed this story.
A very good read. It will have you smileing, Piss you off and take you through the satisfaction of revenge.
Well another Clancy wannabe. This is a decent story, ruined by a not to believable ending. Book is about a submarine that has the President's son onboard as an officer, and it gets captured by the chinese navy. No one wants to tell the chinese that the son is onboard so a special ops mission is sent to get the crew back.
Good enough plot, but I wouldn't read another Robinson book again.
Great action, great read.
Of all of his books, this one I felt most focused on the characters as opposed to the big stakes. In many ways it is also the most downbeat. That said, it contains all the elements that I have come to expect from this author, an informed view of modern navel operations, tight pacing, and surprising reversals.
