By TK on Jan. 8 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I tried three times to get back into this novel. The early pages didn't really have much punch and consisted of too many characters, jargon and acronyms. Near the middle my persistence paid off and I couldn't put the book down. The flights were exciting and the combats (too few) were realistic.
The technology was quite believable and and always seen to work better than expected. You got the feeling that Dreamland really does exist!

India and China are getting ready to rumble. They have two fleets heading for each other. The Indian navy has a new weapon called Kali--a cruise missile that can be fired like a torpedoe thus hiding the attacking submarine.
However, a joint air force / navy group is testing an advanced underwater imaging system called Piranha. Naturally Dreamland and 3 Megafortresses are tagged to run the initial tests. WHen things heat up in the Pacific, they deploy Piranha to keep track of the opposing fleets and prevent the conflagration.
The story is set in 1997, and some of the technology described here might have already made its way from the drawing board to implementation. Clearly, recent events in Afghanistan and Iraq demostrate US technically superiority over everyone else.
This book is tightly written and real joy to read. There is absolutely nothing described here that isn't possible and that's what makes it so great.

Another exciting Dale Brown novel Oct. 19 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recommend this novel to readers who like military/technological novels. Dale Brown's plots follow a certain formula, but his novels are always entertaining.

It was a very exciting book. I'm very partial to Dale Brown's writing. I think I have every one of his books.
How about China against India..... Jan. 2 2009
By Semper Fi! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
instigated by Tawian. Now there is foundation for a good story. Like all of his stories it is way too technical. In fact the first part was hard to read because of this. But once the action started I enjoyed reading it. The action took place in the South China Sea. Dreamland had to come to the rescue before a world war would break out. They did their heroic deeds such as blowing up topedoes that were aimed at the Chinese.

I enjoyed how the Navy tried to interfer with the operation. Your standard military hogwash. But in the end the good guys prevailed.

I would have rated it higher but the last section with Zen thinking his wife cheated on him really disapointed me. In the future I wish Zen would clean up his act.
