An Act of War Revisited

By LateStarter

Adventure / Action

Forward

Brigadier General Frank Savage was Commander of the 918th Bomb Group, 1st Bombardment Wing (Heavy), VIII Bomber Command, 8th Air Force.

He was a handsome man, six foot tall and well built with light brown hair and piercing blue eyes. At thirty-seven, he was young for a General Officer, but promotions tended to come fast in wartime, especially if you were any good at what you did -- and Savage was very good. 

Of course, it also didn't hurt to have the help of a mentor.  Savage's mentor, and long time friend, was Major General Wiley Crowe.  Though Savage rarely needed it, Crowe had helped him when he could throughout his career, and earlier this year had a hand in getting Savage his star and command of the 918th. 

It was a toss-up, however, as to whether this was a career opportunity, or a career ender.  He was a brigadier general in a colonel's billet, sent to 'fix' a broken Group which had poor bombing accuracy, lacked air discipline, had a higher than average loss rate, and had no unit pride. 

Savage knew it was going to be a real challenge, but in the short time he had been in command, he had turned all that around, and the 918th now was a top notch Group, the best in the Wing, maybe even in 8th Air Force.

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...

Chevonne Prinsloo: I loved this book.. I didn't want to stop reading it! just my kind of book... I really love how the plot of the story carries along. I hope there are more books to follow after this one! I like the way she describes how Rogue is feeling and the way she shows the emotions going through Rogu. I als...

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...

Dave Baxter: Generally, a good story. The plot was a bit predictable but not overly so. The first bit might have been better if it instead focused on how the main character becomes a host and not with how humans first interact with the aliens. This might allow more recognition of the various transitions sh...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

taosgw74: If this is the authors first attempt at writing, I'm floored. I was engrossed in the plot from the get go.

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves.

Alisha Tabassum: The story was so beautiful and I absolutely loved it. The only problem is the grammar and spellings. Other than that, its perfect! I think it deserves a lot more views than it currently has. Honestly, I've never read anything like this before.

William Po: Enjoyed the characters and story of the USAF during WWII. Author seems knowledgeable about planes and situations faced by bomber personnel. Also the suffering the air war caused on both sides to civilians.

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

263Adder: Okay so I adore this story. I only knocked one star off plot for historical inaccuracies because I'm a bit of a stickler for that. The ending broke my heart though, considering you already changed history couldn't you (SPOILER) change it a bit more and have them together!!!! I want an alternative...
