Title:  Strike Group Reagan

Author:  Harold Hutchison

Publisher:  Comfort Publishing, LLC

Reviewer: Jeff Edwards Ė AAA Member

Strike Group Reagan blasts off the page like an F/A-18E off the deck of an aircraft carrier.

Navy Lieutenant Renee Patterson, call sign ĎAlpine,í is a fighter pilot stationed aboard the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan. With her squadron leader, call sign ĎMomí at her wing, she goes head-to-head with a group of Air Force fighter jets in mock aerial combat. Part training exercise, and part grudge-match, the war games are a chance for the Navy and Air Force to find out whose fighter jocks are the best.

Renee flies like an ace, doing herself and her squadron proud. But itís only a simulation. The missiles arenít real; the deaths arenít real; and the blood isnít real. For all of her skills, she has never been tested in actual combat.

When civil war erupts in Tunisia, the Reagan battle group, under the command of Rear Admiral Kevin Bradshaw, is deployed to aid in evacuating American citizens from the war zone. For Renee Patterson, this mission isnít just a matter of duty. Itís personal. Her younger sister, Angela, is in Tunisia to study archeology.

The situation in Tunisia deteriorates rapidly, and the routine evacuation begins to go horribly wrong. The Islamic insurgents at the heart of the unrest are more heavily armed and better supported than anyone expects. They have the secret backing of the Chinese military, and they are ready for combat on a scale that no one is prepared for.

Admiral Bradshaw must find a way to win a war he never expected to fight. Both Patterson sisters must use every skill in their arsenals in order to survive. And when the missiles start flying, Renee Patterson knows that itís not a game any more. Itís for real.

Harold Hutchison has penned a blistering tale of white-hot naval combat.
