Revue de presse

“The best military adventure writer in the country.” Clive Cussler

Présentation de l'éditeur

The new Gulf War is erupting, and this one will be far bloodier than the first. A newly powerful Iran is flexing its military muscle in the Middle East. The Iranians have declared the Persian Gulf their territorial waters-and an American ship has just been sunk to prove the point.

With a military racked by budget cuts and a public reluctant to fight, the president must end the crisis before it escalates. The solution: Project Future Flight, a surgical stealth campaign to silence Iran’s modern weapons. The personnel: Colonel Patrick McLanahan and the surviving crew of the Old Dog. The stakes: success-or full-scale war…

Dale was born in Buffalo, New York on November 2, 1956. He graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Western European History and received an Air Force commission in 1978. He was a member of the first class of Air Force ROTC cadets to qualify for and complete the grueling three-week U.S. Army Airborne Infantry paratrooper training course at Fort Benning, Georgia in 1977.

Dale was a navigator-bombardier in the B-52G Stratofortress heavy bomber and the FB-111A supersonic medium bomber, and an instructor on aircrew life support and combat survival, evasion, resistance, and escape. He is the recipient of several military decorations and awards including the Air Force Commendation Medal with oak leaf cluster, the Combat Crew Award, and the Marksmanship ribbon.

Dale is a command pilot in Angel Flight West, a group that volunteer their time, skills, and aircraft to fly needy medical patients free of charge to receive medical treatment. Dale is also a mission pilot and deputy squadron commander in the Civil Air Patrol, which performs search and rescue, disaster relief, humanitarian assistance, surveillance, and many other missions in support of the U.S. Air Force and other federal agencies. He supports a number of organizations to promote law enforcement, education, literacy, and support for military veterans and their families.

Dale Brown is a Life Member of the Air Force Association, U.S. Naval Institute, and National Rifle Association. He is a multi-engine and instrument-rated private pilot and can often be found in the skies all across the United States, at the controls of his Cessna P210 Centurion. On the ground, Dale is a youth soccer referee and referee instructor and enjoys tennis and scuba diving. Dale, his wife Diane, and son Hunter live near Lake Tahoe, Nevada.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book - Inaccurate Cover 20 février 2000
Par "rebelunion" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Dale Brown almost always writes gripping stuff. Shadows of Steel is no different. While Dale Brown certainly takes quite a few creative liberties and some of the scenarios in his books may seem far fetched, Shadows of Steel is generally realistic. Iran is the key country in this book, and Brown gives them the military might to hold all the power in the Persian Gulf. It's up to Brown's hero Patrick McLanahan to destroy the Iranian threat using America's finest, the B-2 Bomber.
The only real problem I had with the book was its cover. If you read Cyrillic and know your Russian navy, the aircraft carrier on the cover is the "Kiev". Brown's carrier in the book is the "Varyag", a totally different ship than the cover, and which was not completed and currently remains in dry dock in the Ukraine, rusting away indefinitely. Despite the incorrect cover, I praise Dale Brown for his originality in predicting the sale of the carrier to China, something which is very likely to happen.
Another good book by Dale Brown that every serious military techno-thriller enthusiast should have on their bookshelf. For people who don't like all the technical information that is critical in a book in this genre, stay away! Dale Brown puts all the technical information in his books for a reason, to make them realistic. People who get overwhelmed by these kinds of books shouldn't write negative reviews just because of that. If you don't like technical information, don't read techno-thrillers. But don't put down the author for authenticity. Still, serious fans will enjoy this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not so thrilling technothriller 23 mars 2005
Par Rottenberg's rotten book review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
In "Shadows of Steel", It's the "United States Air Force of Patrick McLanahan" v. Iran. Having previously duked it out with Soviets, Red China and a KGB mole, maverick flier McLanahan is tagged to fly stealth missions into Iran. The covert war is spurred by Iran's defacto nationalization of large pieces of the Persian Gulf and their acquisition of an ex-Russian aircraft carrier (betcha can't guess the name). Obviously the Iranians will have none of McLanahan's airborne warfare, but they get help from some allies in America - liberals, bureaucrats and a pissed-off Navy Admiral who's around to remind us that inter-service rivalry is alive and well in the future of Brown's books.

This was a middling novel. Like most of Brown's books, its hampered by its need to get the look, sound and feel of air combat. Unfortunately, we get so much data, there's no room for the story, or even the idea that the book has a plot. "Steel" never feels like it's working towards something - instead it's basically a sting of scenes with flight jargon, political back-talk and scheming villains. Even the feeling of being in the pilot's seat is spoiled - our characters engage in the same easygoing dialog that you expect to hear from people schmoozing on the ground but never from people strapped into a high-performance fighter jet flying over enemy territory. The realism is debatable, but its drag on the plot is painfully obvious. Some howlers however aren't so much technical but fall into that realm of he human conscious for which there is no on-line directory. For all pretensions of being a maverick, McLanahan is a textbook hero, while a thinly veiled versions of real-life liberals make this less a technothriller than a high-tech Alan Drury novel. I should have realized something was wrong when Brown created as a love interest, a beautiful Saudi female soldier - this from a country where women aren't aloowed to drive or show their faces.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 "Enjoyable, but lacking in some areas." 15 juillet 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
It's America's ultimate nightmare. Iran has an aircraft carrier, and they're not afraid to use it. "Shadows of Steel" doesn't waste time getting to the action. The Gulf nations launch a pre-emptive strike against a heavily fortified Iranian island on page one. In response, an American spy ship is sunk, and the crisis snowballs from there.
The combat scenes were written very well, and Brown uses lots of very interesting hi-tech weapons to fight Iran. However, this book was shorter than his previous works. Brown also seemed to be lacking in character development, something he has immensely improved on in his last few novels. More focus should have been given to McLanahan and his relationships with his wife and his co-pilot, Colonel Jameison.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unbeleivable realism, an Incredible Thrill ride! 5 août 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
I read "Day of the Cheetah" about 8 years ago, and have been a devout Dale brown fan every since. "Shadows of Steel" was yet another great book by a great author. Dale gives us Characters that pull you into the story. A Chinese Built aircraft carrier, and Patrick McLanahan in a B-2 Stealth. What more do you need? I must also strongly recommend "Tin Men", this might be my favorite so far.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beeaauutiful..... 29 mars 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Gotta love it! Dale Brown's 9th novel, Shadows of Steel features a battle-scarred B-2A stealth bomber countering the threat of an Iranian aircraft carrier and an Iranian military coup. The novel did a tremendous job of conveying the dark fascination of carrying out precision strikes unseen by your enemy. In fact, the only complaint I could have was that in the dialogue everybody kept saying "B-2A", whereas it seems to me they would usually just say "B-2". But what do I know? Maybe the story relied a little bit too much on non-lethal weapons, and there was a minor innacuracy involving the maximum speed of the AIM-54C Phoenix missile, but these minor problems don't take much from the story. A must-read if you're a Dale Brown fan and a stealth bomber fan. Enjoy
