His years in Vietnam as a fighter pilot and diplomat charge his books with authenticity even while he "artfully spins gripping, compelling tales of his craft" (The Washington Post).

Overview

The explosive finale of Mark Berent's saga of men at war in Vietnam. In four novels, beginning with Rolling Thunder, Berent has captured the intensity and drama of U.S. politics and Vietnam combat as few other writers have. His years in Vietnam as a fighter pilot and diplomat charge his books with authenticity even while he "artfully spins gripping, compelling tales of his craft" (The Washington Post). Tom Clancy calls him "the real thing." And Storm Flight proves it again. In the fifth and final novel of this saga, the daring raid on the Son Tay prisoner-of-war camp starts a chain reaction that forces each of Berent's men to examine his courage, strength, and abilities in ways he'd never thought possible. USAF Lieutenant Colonel Court Bannister is removed from the field of action, only to reenter it on a bomber manned by a dead pilot.... Special Forces Colonel Wolf Lochert parachutes into Hanoi for POW evidence that could have an astonishing effect on the war, if only he can make it out in one piece.... USAF Captain Toby Parker faces constant questions about his gut instincts, until a test looms from which there is no turning back.... For each of them, and the many others of Storm Flight - pilots, soldiers, lovers, politicians, commanders - fate depends on the risks they take... and the risks have never been greater. Storm Flight is a searing, powerful work - an electrifying conclusion to a remarkable series.

Here is the fifth and final novel in the riveting Vietnam War saga that began with Rolling Thunder. A daring raid on a POW camp ignites a chain reaction that forces three men to examine their own strengths, abilities, and courage. "Terrifying action and heroism."--Kirkus Reviews.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the bitter year of 1972, deep inside Vietnam, American POWs with special knowledge or skills have been secretly removed from camps, their names hidden from official records. After a daring American raid exposes Soviet complicity, American airmen must try to free their comrades. In this fifth and final novel in the series that began with Rolling Thunder , Lt. Gen. ``Whitey'' Whisenand leads a varied group of men in this mission. Among them are Air Force Lt. Col. Court Bannister, who must leave his beloved fighters and learn to drive a ``bus'' (a B-52 bomber); Special Forces Lt. Col. Wolf Lochert, who designs and carries out a heart-stopping parachute drop; and fighter pilot Capt. Toby Parker. Meanwhile, Major Flak Apple and his buddies bravely manage to send coded messages from Hoa Lo Prison (``Hanoi Hilton''). The mission is further complicated by the anti-war movement, Kissinger/Nixon politicking and the men's emotions as they lose friends in the relentless air war. Genre aficionados will relish the wealth of military detail and the technical explanations; all readers will be rewarded by the ultimate mission, when planes, men and tactics are tested to the spine-tingling limits. Berent, whose 20 years in the Air Force included three tours of Vietnam, has developed a loyal following of military aviation buffs (including many Vietnam aviators) all eager for this conclusion to his saga. (Oct.)
Library Journal
Not since Stephen Coonts's Flight of the Intruder has there been a novel as interesting and authentic on the subject of air combat over Vietnam. Like Coonts, Berent is a Vietnam vet; he served two tours as a fighter pilot, logging more than 1000 hours. Storm Flight is the fifth and final novel in a series that includes Rolling Thunder (Putnam, 1989); it depicts characters ranging from inmates in a starkly depicted POW camp to such actual U.S. government officials as Henry Kissinger. The book's chief action involves a raid on a North Vietnamese POW camp, and of course there are abundant scenes in the air, with aircraft ranging from OV-10 observation planes to the mighty B-52 Stratofortress. Recommended for public libraries and any library with a general or military fiction readership.-- Jim Cunningham, Illinois Mathematics & Science Acad., Aurora

    A Great Read

    It was a great book on the Vietnam War. Couldn't put it down. Really opened my eyes about politics in war.

    Interesting series. Frustrating to read if you have read the other books in the series. Too much reintroduction of characters. Also a lack of editing with words being repeated, confusing at times about what character is being talked about, and some scenes are not necessary for the plot or character development, in my opinion. Otherwise I did enjoy the books.
