Publisher's Weekly Review

In this sequel to Rolling Thunder , the U.S. Air Force attempts to cut supplies to a crucial Ho Chi Minh Trail sector during the Vietnam War. According to PW , Berent's criticism of the Johnson administration is ``well meant but stolidly written; the novel takes fire when he switches from political commentary to military action.'' (Dec.)

Library Journal Review

Berent's (Storm Flight, LJ 9/15/93) latest popular novel is a heroic tale featuring U.S. fighter pilots during the Vietnam War. The text is conveniently spliced with hard rock music and accompanied by sounds of guns and aircraft. The characters have dual conflicts, e.g., Major Court Bannister's brother is a traitor, Captain Toby Parker battles alcoholism, and Lieutenant Colonel Wolf Lochert fights corruption. The vignettes are uneven as is Paul Ikena's narrative performance. Nonetheless, the work will appeal to the action-oriented crowd. For large collections.-James Dudley, Copiague, N.Y.
