The fourth high-action military thriller from author James W. Huston, Fallout is filled with a muscular narrative voice that tells the high-tech story of a man trapped between following his government’s orders and his own principles. TOPGUN instructor Luke Henry quits the Navy after being unjustly accused of causing a mid-air collision and starts his own private aerial combat training school. Alongside several other ex-TOPGUN fliers, Luke takes on a government contract to train Pakistani Air Force pilots for the Department of Defense. Luke is immediately resistant to teaching foreign pilots to use sophisticated American planes, but he grows even more suspicious when he begins to suspect that something even more mysterious -- and deadly -- is occurring around him.
Although the aerial action here is magnificent and highly genuine, Fallout deals just as much with the emotional and spiritual incentives for war and their cost upon human history. (Tom Piccirilli)
