J. Webb reviewed The Night Eagles Soared

Highly recommended for those wanting a realistic picture of Special Forces July 23, 2013.

Having lived the life of a Special Forces operator, whenever I pick up a book about the special operations community I do so with some trepidation. Many of them are adrenaline filled self-aggrandizing crap. Not this one. I had a long chat with the author and he claims the work to be fiction. However, whether it is fiction or not, I found it to paint a very realistic picture of what life is like in Special Forces - from the training, to the missions, to the hardship on family lives - the author has managed to capture these feelings for the uninitiated. Not only is it well done from that perspective, the author has managed to draw you into that world with great storytelling that is worthy of best-selling authors.
