[ Read Online Wraith ↠´ stuart PDF ] by James R. Hannibal ä This book is written for 24 year old pilots and no one else Jargon rich and plot thin.
An okay read The author was clearly an expert in air combat and planes There was just too much military jargon for me to enjoy it.
Authentic and precisean accurate representation of Air Force pilots and flight tactics Well put together story that was quite exciting I look forward to reading the rest of Hannibal s books Turning and turning in the widening gyreThe falcon cannot hear the falconer Things fall apart the centre cannot hold Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,The blood dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhereThe ceremony of innocence is drowned W.
B Yeats The Second Coming 1919Wraith is, by no stretch of the imagination, a light read Be prepared to be overwhelmed by details details about everything from exactly how an Irish Cross is carried out arguably the most complex maneuver in the Warthog tactics manual And no, that isn t something from Hogwarts It is a four aircraft multiple weapon attack on a target to every single step, step by for me excruciating step, including weapons, planes, and everything else required in war.
I wanted to read this book I really like military thrillers, and, if these are the types of books you like I found the book a bit hard to get through because of all the military jargon It starts out before 9 11 and there are pilots in training just itching to get out there and get those bad guys back I found the book well written and I did enjoy it I don t know if Mr Hannibal has military service or just really well researched his book If you have military service let me take a moment to thank you for your service sir Wraith a wisp or faint trace of something One of the men who flew a secret manned drone which they had previously named Baby, was given the moniker of Wraith If we knew what our soldiers go through every day like is described in this book, the wives were not told the truth of where their husbands were It was a secret mission and only a few knew of it Good book.
Wraith by James R HannibalThe book begins just before the 9 11 tragedy The American Air Force is running training missions in Saudi Arabia and Missouri and other locations around the globe As news of the towers tragedy spreads, everyone pauses, trying to process the informaiton But when the European squadrons are left out, Michael Victor Baron is frustrated in Germany feeling like his hands are tied He has been denied to fly the B 2 Stealth Not only is he not in America or in Iraq where the action is, but as an expert in Islamic Terrorism, he desperately wants to apply his knowledge and avenge the lost, innocent lives However, he struggles with his deep respect for life and wonders where the fine line exists between avenging those lives and just wanting to flat out kill the terrorists he had studied so lo This is the second book by James Hannibal that I have read and I enjoyed it immensely It rates right up there with Dale Brown and Tom Clancy It is a wonderful book for those who enjoy the military tech genre I highly recommend it.
I am not really in to military type books but I found this to be a very interesting, fact filled, fast paced novel loved it.
The new Wraith previously a stand alone now serves as a prequel to the Nick Baron series It is tighter and fast paced, with less time spent on character histories Some readers may miss getting Dr Scott Stone s whole life story as soon as we meet him, but I think the book reads much better without it Also, it appears that Mr Hannibal moved a lot of the character background information to the Stealth Ops app, which is free Even without the lengthy character histories, this book still spends time than the other two in developing the characters of the Triple Seven Chase squadron We get to see who they are and how they met, which is in the crucible of a mission plagued by Murphy s Law that forces them to mesh together into a team.
