    Patrol squadrons make up a small part of Naval aviation, and much of the work they do is classified. 
    Accordingly, the VP Navy is seldom seen in popular fiction. I served as a crew member in P3 squadrons for ten 
    years, and I can attest that the scenes in the aircraft are plausible and realistically portrayed. The novel has its
    faults, but it's the only novel I know that's set in the vp world, and that makes it the best.
