Product Description

Product Description

Lieutenant Commander Jim Wilson, a fighter pilot aboard the carrier USS Valley Forge, is weary of combat over the skies of Iraq. He has been there many times since the late 90s, but now, as each passing minute draws him once again closer to combat, various other conflicts also complicate his life. His executive officer Commander “Saint” Patrick becomes unreasonably overbearing; his wife Mary, fed-up with their long separations, applies pressure for him to resign from the Navy; junior officers test his leadership skills as they act in unpredictable ways; and the raging sea outside serves as the only thing that separates him from events that will change forever his life and career. Imminent combat with the inhospitable and hostile countries over the horizon is the only constant he can depend on.

Raven One places you with Wilson in the cockpit of a carrier-based FA-18 Hornet…and in the ready rooms and bunkrooms of men and women who struggle with their fears and uncertainty in this new way of war. They must all survive a deployment that takes a sudden and unexpected turn when Washington orders Valley Forge to respond to a crisis no one saw coming. The world watches – and holds its breath.

Retired Navy Captain Kevin Miller fills his novel with flying action and adventure – and also examines the actions of imperfect humans as they follow their own agendas in a disciplined world of unrelenting pressure and danger.

About the Author

Captain Kevin Miller, a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, is a former tactical naval aviator and has flown the A-7E Corsair II and FA-18 Hornet operationally. He commanded a carrier-based strike-fighter squadron in combat, and, during his career, logged over 1,000 carrier-arrested landings, made possible as he served alongside outstanding men and women as part of a winning team. Captain Miller lives and writes in Pensacola, Florida. RAVEN ONE is his first novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I've read for a long time 21 Nov 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Possibly the best insight into combat flying ever written. Strong characters demonstrating the skills needed to stay sane in such a dangerous environment. Major scenes are beautifully written - the old cliche of actually being in the Hornet as the action happens has never been so true. An excellent read. I hope the author has more like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it 22 Sep 2014

I think I've found the new Tom Clancy. Captain Miller certainly gets the technical details right as he takes us on mission after mission in an F18C Hornet, with each cat and trap increasing the tension and danger levels up another level. I couldn't put it down and am eagerly awaiting his next novel.

Capt. Miller obviously knows his subject, high octane flight scenes mixed with doses of hiumour compassion and reality. A must for any aviation enthusiast and possibly a blueprint for Top gun 2 ? Hope there's another one ready on Cat 2

Great account of flying the wonderful F18. Lots of detail (for nerds like me) but also humour and significant insight about the gulf conflict, but wider aspects of US military policy
