This time Cobb takes us to the Dark Continent of Africa, which is currently embroiled in their latest civil war. Sadly the USS Cunningham only appears breifly in a moving "changing of the guard" scene which i thought was one of the book's best moments.

Another great near future naval thriller from Cobb. com User, December 21, 2000. I was excited when this book came out in paperback because I enjoyed reading about the USS Cunningham and it's able crew in the previous books.

I liked the book even though it ws a slower read than his first 2 novels.I liked his Dedication and had to check where exactly the bismarck archipelago is .I think he should have said the south Pacific.The book while full of interesting toys,devices and ideas which I hope some of the people in Navy R& D( like the use of navalized Hell-fire missiles on ships for a small,cheaper takeout device than having to launch a Harpoon missile are good.I believe they ae now arming the Naval anti-submarine helicopters that deploy with the ships that carry Helos with them already. My only concern is that the dialogue is much like a Tom Swift Jr.book from my childhood.Also,I noticed spots where the dialogue just was not believable.I doubt that an O-5 (Full commander) would say when asked about the skill of his demolition men to an O-6 Female officer that "they could blow off Your bra without touching your skin". This is not belieavable dialogue when you are saying this to your commanding officer.I liked him having an enemy who was not a totally evil type but a complicated guy who I could almost root for. I thought this was more interesting than most books of this genre with absolutely malevloent opponents.I hope to continue reading Mr.Cobb.I like his reference to lines from Kipling who I am sure is his favorite poet "the savage wars of Peace".Interesting that Kipling could comment on this almost 100 years about the "thin red Line of heroes" who put down revolts from the Sudan to Peking.Mr.Cobb tries to teach in his books and I appreciate this especially for those who do not read the same naval magazines as he does.I would like to know more about this man .His Bio that he belongs to the Naval institute and the Navy leaque means almost nothing.Maybe he wishes to remain mysterious and really is in naval weapons development up in Puget sound or China Lake.I enjoyed the book ,it was an interesting read for the ideas but some of the dialogue I think needs some work.I also liked him working in the use of the phrase "Iron Men and Wooden ships"and his comments on it.Finally his opinion on why there is so much strife in Africa with country boundaries drawn up by long since gone european governments makes a lot of sense.The book taught as well as entertained even if I felt I was reading a teenager's adventure novel at times.But I am sure I will not wait till his next book comes out in Paperback but will immediately buy a hardcover edition as soon as I see his next book in print.

This is the 3rd time I have tried to write this review. I hope it works this time! This is a big change from the story types in the first two books in this series. Mr. Cobb still comes up with a believable situation, with elements of real newstype events. I have already reread this book several times. It is a little slow getting started, but a good read. The acknowledgements to the littoral "brown" navy and the restrictions mandated by a UN "peace" mission have a ring of truth and realism to them. I look forward to the next book in this series!

This is a change from the first two books in this series. The story vividly brings out the tensions of UN "peacekeeping" mission constraints. It pays tribute to the traditions of the "brown water" navy of Vietnam. I do recommend this for entertaining reading! I look forward to the next book in this series!

I got this book on a Thursday and finished it on Saturday. The characters increase in depth with each book and the stories get better each time. If you like military fiction but are tired of the tried and true, then read Sea Fighter. When you are done go back and read Sea Strike and Chooses of the Slain. You will not be disappointed.

This book takes Amanda Garret in a new direction, and it is a fine way to go. The book is believable, the plot works, the characters are human and we can sympathize with them. As far as one reviewer's complaint about the dialoge reference demolitions, that's the way those guys talk. Their commanders do put up with it since they are a small and highly skilled group. Go out and spend the money on this book, you won't be dissapointed.
And for an extra treat, e-mail Mr. Cobb at the address he puts in the book. Unlike Mr. Clancy, Cobb still answers his e-mails and evidently personally (one teeny little misspelling, ah well).
I highly recommend this book. It is an excellent read and hits all the right buttons.

Cobb gives us a likable and capable group of characters led by Captain Amanda Garrett. A solid story and action. Technically interesting and a possible view of an international problem in the near future. Women as commanders in combat, the armed forces could learn a lesson from Cobb. If you haven't read Cobbs "Choosers of the Slain" get it and read it, then read this.

James Cobb does it again. The USS Cunningham is out of service & Commander Amanda Garrett gets involved with the three little pigs! This one as the others keeps you at the edge of your seat. The techno discriptions are great as is the inter-action of the staff. All 3 books are a must. Can't wait for the next one.

All the high tech hardware and action techno-thriller lovers like with the added fact that Mr Cobb is one helluva good writer. And what a terrific character! Amanda Garrett, the Navy's first female combat commander. Read all the books in the series and you'll be as hooked as I am on. I can't wait for the next.
