Format: Mass Market Paperback
PHANTOM LEADER is the third in Berent's five book saga of fighting men in Vietnam. Berent's series gets better as this author gains experience and insight into the lives of his characters. This book is probably the first one in the series I would consider a "must read". The reason is the story of Major Algeron "Flak" Apple who is shot down in his F-4 fighter early in the book and is captured by the North Vietnamese. His story gives the reader a shocking look at life as a prisoner of war inside the Hao Lo prison, known more commonly as the "Hanoi Hilton". His story continues through the final two volumes. Berent agonizing portrayal of Apple's life of misery and torture inside the prison is dramatic and moving. The story also contains the continuing story of Court Bannister, an Air Force pilot that I believe Berent uses to tell his own story. Wolf Lochert also continues his battle as a US Army Special Forces Lt. Colonel. Berent writes with a similar style to Tom Clancy. This book is really five seperate stories that all intersect at one time or another. Berent's books are much easier to read and have more action than technical detail. The reader does, however, recieve enough explanation of military terms and acronyms to understand the sometimes complex language used by military persons. This books is a surperb action novel, but what makes it great is the amazing and horrifying look inside a prison camp of North Vietnam.

Can't put it down March 6 2012
By Sheepdog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I flew the F-4, but not in Vietnam. However most of the guys in the Squadron had flown in Vietnam. This gives you the very feeling that you are there. Very well written, I hate putting it down. I have already ordered 3 more of Mark's books.

A Great Start to a Book Series June 7 2013
By Kotuku - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you think you know all about the background of the Viet Nam War then think again until you read this book. The first in a series of 5 books, I bought this in an Amazon promotion for $0.00 and was immediately hooked and have bought the rest.

While a fictional novel, the author's intimate knowledge of the war reveals so much that I didn't know, especially the crap from LBJ and the Fourth Estate. Excellent characters in this novel and they follow through into the other books in the series. The historical research is faultless and the book has many small incidents that build into the story, over many characters and chapters.

The use of ACRONYMS is a little off-putting to start with, as each acronym is carefully explained, sometimes more than once, so the first few chapters are a little hard going. Do persevere, it soon flys by this. Perhaps in retrospect to make it easier reading, the explanation of each acronym could have been made in an index at the end of the book, for anyone that interested?

An excellent combat story written by someone who really knows their stuff.

Phantom Leader July 2 2014

Another great story, I enjoyed reading this book also. The author keeps twisting the story line and keeps the characters real. I enjoy the way the characters are moved and yet come back together.
