Overview

U. S. S. Seawolf (Admiral Arnold Morgan Series #4) by Patrick Robinson

Armed with stolen U.S. military technology, the Chinese are producing a frightening new breed of weaponry,led by the ICBM submarine Xia III — a vessel that just might be able to launch a nuclear warhead across the Pacific Ocean and take out an American West Coast city.

National Security Adviser Admiral Arnold Morgan can't let that happen, and he dispatches the most stealthy hunter-killer submarine in the U.S. fleet, the 9,000-ton ultrasecret Seawolf, deep into the dark, forbidden waters of the South China Sea. But then the unthinkable happens: Seawolf, collides with a Chinese destroyer and falls into enemy hands. A team of cunning Navy SEALs — the biggest Special Forces assault group assembled since Vietnam — is sent in to free the captive Seawolf, crew and bring them home. The American Eagle confronts the Chinese Dragon with the balance of world power on the line. Failure is not an option...

This is one of the best books I've ever read. It's one of my favorites and I thought that it's even better than the Hunt For Red October by Tom Clancy.

I absolutely love the way that the author puts you in the mind of the commanders that have to deal with such horrific situations. After reading Nimitz Class, where the Navy brass had to deal with an American Aircraft carrier dissapearing, now they have lost contact with an American Nuclear Submarine in Chinese waters. Great reading.

Patrick Robinson's fourth book is one of his better books in which the Seawolf is captured in Chinese waters and taken hostage by the communists who are interested in the submarine's advanced technology. The US responds by assembling a team of SEALs to rescue the crew. A good book though there were times when it got a little boring and Robinson annoyoingly often uses all capital letters when characters are yelling.

Patrick Robinsion is, simply, a master. I was hooked by Nimitz-class, enjoyed Kilo-class, was just plain creeped out by HMS Unseen, and was enthralled with USS Seawolf. The parallels drawn between this book and recent events only help to make the book seem that much more real. I personally believe that this book could not possibly be better researched, or have better characters. There is one sequence in which a Navy SEAL is introduced as hailing from Morehead City, North Carolina, which is a former home of mine. Reading that the mother of the SEAL owned a bookstore which was across from a marina (speaking of which, there is actually a bookstore across from a marina), really drew me to the character, as if he was one of my friends. As others noted, the end is a bit of a shock, but to myself, personally, it only forces me to be even more compelled to see how certain people recover in Robinson's next book, I believe it is The Shark Mutiny.

Mr Robinson again has put between the covers an outstanding story. He strikes the right balance between the technical and personal plots and subplots. As in all his books thusfar he has presented plausible stories that too easily could come true. I enjoy reading just prior to going to sleep. This is one of those books where: 'just a few more pages' turns into realizing there are just a few more hours before starting the day all over again. A definite read for the military adventure lover. Well done, Mr Robinson.

Patrick Robinson has shown me what a great job that the United States military has been and always will be the supreme super power. The organization of his plot was well thought out and gives it a great 'realistic' touch. After I finished this book it made me think about how close we may come to World War III. Many operations of the military are kept secret but this one should give you a pretty good idea of how the United States can, Recognize, Plan, and Execute any desired task with none or little casualties.
