Tonight’s operation was different, and the team stood behind the behemoth plane, looking into it through the open tail section. The sound of the jet-powered generators onboard was deafening, and each man listened attentively as their company commander congratulated them upon being the first team selected for such a prestigious mission.
During the ensuing flight, the sergeant in charge of this elite team takes time to reflect on his distinguished career of military service. Serving as a member of the army’s Special Forces unit for over twenty years, Mike has done and seen things, both good and bad, that most people could never conceive. From the jungles of South America to the deserts of the Middle East, Mike’s memories take the reader on a thrilling journey through The Night Eagles Soared.
The Night Eagles Soared by Steve Newman pulls the reader into the life of the United States military’s men and women. The sacrifices, training, and dedication of these individuals are astounding. I always knew that their mission was dangerous. Reading about some of them in detail brought a face and heart into the picture. As a civilian I urge you to read this book to gain more appreciation for the price paid for our freedom and protection.

The Night Eagles Soared by Steve Newman is a book that speaks to the military reader. Authentic descriptions of ordnance and weapons effects are an integral part of the story and keep it real. I appreciated the technical details and the nod given to Homestead Air Reserve Base's Mako Squadron. As a member of the Armed Forces, I encourage everyone to read this book, it most certainly rings true.
