From Publishers Weekly

This absorbing techno-thriller follows the author's established pattern of fast action in the air and on the ground, its hard-driving protagonists equipped with an arsenal of futuristic hardware. Patrick McLanahan is back again, this time as air force major general in charge of the First Air Battle Force, a secret experimental unit with the controls to a jackpot of high-tech toys, among them air-retrievable bomb-carrying drones, venerable B-52s packing brand-new, high-powered lasers, and B-1s (called Vampires) capable of carrying out unmanned missions. Supporting McLanahan are a respectable company of the other continuing characters in the author's air force saga, which has acquired (like Clancy's Jack Ryan volumes) some of the attributes of an alternate history. These include Rebecca Furness, with her first star; maverick Daren Mace, still under a cloud and still in love with Rebecca; cigar-smoking acting Secretary of State Maureen Hershel; and charismatic ex-President Kevin Martindale. All collide when a Taliban raid into Turkmenistan leads to the overthrow of the Russian-backed Turkmen government. Eager to set things right, the Russian chief of staff engineers a military coup in Russia, pumping up the threat of war between Russia and the U.S. At the end, Brown (Wings of Fire, etc.) has deftly set up his next book, with Turkmenistan ruled by Jalaluddin Turabi, a former Taliban bandit and now a budding statesman, while the Russians bare their fangs over the not-unexpected destruction of their bombers by the Air Battle Force. Brown fans will declare this a page-turning delight.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not the best but still good 7. Oktober 2003
Von Patrick - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I've read every single one of Mr. Brown's books and this one is by far the weakest. Still good though but not his best. It was nice to see old characters like General Furness and Colonel Mace. But Thorn has to go. Hopefully he gets ousted from office in the next book. The plot in this one is kinda a weak but it seems to set up the next book nicely. (A war with Russia?) The robot planes are totally unbelieveable though. It breaks my heart to see Mr. Brown, a former navigator himself, take the real heros out of the picture. Whats the fun in flying if your gonna do it from the ground? A lot seems to be missing from Air Battle Force. But hopefully its just a set up for the next one.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Where is Dale Brown?? 2. Juni 2013
Von Nimrod - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read almost all of Dale Browns novels, and am very sad that he is no longer writing. I say that because this book is a piece of junk, and his other works have been very good. I have to assume that the responsible party to this is Jim DeFelice. I suppose if you like a book that is 90% "Techno, and Political drivel" you may like this. I do not...I gave this book a reluctant rating of 1. There is nothing good about it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Air Battle Force 24. April 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Story line was exciting and detailed as is normal with Dale Brown novels. The main character is this series book is Patrick McLanahan who who is dedicated to protecting the United States from all enemies. The detailed description of the high tech equipment and the story plots keep the readers attention. Books purchased for the Kindle reader are superb and very quickly down load to the reader....Another great book in the series.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Too much tech but still very good.... 28. Oktober 2008
Von Semper Fi! - Veröffentlicht auf
and for his sake I hope he cuts the technical jargon down to a minimum. Other than the too much tech I enjoyed how he spent a lot of time on the Taliban. I found that enjoyable and refreshing for a change. The parts about the Russians were the same old story line on how they start every bad situation then denied it and blame the poor old USA.

Sometimes the writer goes overboard in making heroes out of his characters. This time I feel he does not go there because he spent so much time on the Taliban. I enjoyed how he progressed and degressed the 2 Taliban leaders.

The writer portrays Thorn as someone who has complete opposite ways of running the White House from all the others who precedeeded him. With our actual Presential race being contested next week I really take an interest at someone who is very different from his predecessors. The two canditates that are actually running this presendential year are the typical candidates. One will keep it the system the same (incumbent party) and the other will change it. Thorn may be fictional but at least he is portrated as his own man. Such as that he did not even attend his own swearing in ceremony because he was too busy. Can you see that being done in the real world? No, way!

Mr. Brown keep up the action and limit the technical trite.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dale Brown is in fine form once again! 6. Juli 2003
Von Mr N Forbes-warren - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
AIR BATTLE FORCE begins spectacularly as ongoing hero of Dale's books General Patrick McLanahan is leading an intel mission into Afghanistan in the war on terror. When he almost loses one of his supersecret StealthHawk UAVs, he orders a decidedly unauthorised mission to recover it using all means at his disposal, much to the detriment of the Taliban forces in the area who want the weaponry on the UAV, his superiors in the White House who want him to fail and indeed at Diego Garcia naval air station when he has to bring down a crippled EB-1 bomber! These blazing action scenes set the tone for the story. Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, resurgent Taliban forces led by a General Zarazi ousted out by US forces set their sights on oil-rich neighbouring Turkmenistan, seeking the riches to fund Al-Qaeda terror cells and further their own gains. However, plans for a quick takeover are in danger from an internal power struggle from one Jalaluudin Turabi, corrupt Russian military officers seeking the rebuilding of the former Soviet Union and also US oil companies bribing the Taliban to keep pipelines open. When Turkmenistan is invaded, the US President Thomas Thorn reluctantly authorises McLanahan's new Air Battle Force in to sort out the mess before a major confrontation occurs. Using ground troops - ongoing Marine characters Hal Briggs and Chris Wohl in high-tech exoskeletal body armour armed with hypervelocity projectile weapons - and a new fleet of unmanned, virtual-computer-controlled B-1 bombers, they do all they can to bring down Zarazi's guerilla forces. But there are always complications - General Rebecca Furness, B-1 wing commander is under scrutiny from old flame Daren Mace, from CHAINS OF COMMAND. As well as these olf favourite characters, Dale Brown has also introduced a new set of younger aircrews which will no doubt feature in future novels. When the military action takes off, the pace is fast, exciting and pulse-pounding. Brown once again tells a tale which keeps you reading and sets up the next book nicely at the end with a great and unexpected twist involving the Tarubi character and a power-crazed Russian general. So if airborne action and gadgetry are your cup of tea, this book just might be for you! Well done Dale Brown.
