I recently came across a copy of Nimitz Class and began to read it. Was bowled over by the author's understanding that there are bad people out there in the world and that America, along with Great Britain, have been out there on the frontlines taking the fight to the enemy. The author is right on that American firepower and it's commitment to spreading freedom around the world is noble in its design and just in its focus. Keep up the good works. Great job on the factual aspects of carrier technology and life. I once served on the USS Nimitz and the conventional USS Saratoga. Curtis Bennett - Author of the novel "The Will of America"

What is the order of progression of the Patrick Robinson's books stories.
I plan to check them out at the library but it is more enjoyable to read them in order.
Any one know?

I served on Hms Cardiff in 1982 during the Falklands and this book makes the RN look like a second rate bunch of weekend boy scouts.
The detail was not good ( earlier books were superb). The point about the Sea Harriers is 100% spot on.
Talk to Sandy W next time you write, I met him when we returned to Portsmouth.
Yanks always save the day!

Most books are independent but some are linked together in a continuing story line, these are normally in pairs. However most of the characters are in all recent books with references back to an earlier book so it would be best to read them all in date order. Most of his books are very good reads so you won't go wrong, a couple are not so gripping but still good books.
Hope this helps.

Are Mr. Robinson's books suppose to be read in any particular order, or does it really not matter?

Just reading (again) U.S.S. Seawolf published in 2000. I noticed (story date Apr 2005) where he mentions a sub named after Jimmy Carter. The US is looking at naming a sub after Carter this year (2005).

Not many books grab my attention, but this one did, very difficult to put down. As an ex submariner this scenario was an excellent choice mixed with a fast pace to keep it extra interesting, the ending was perfect, won;t say any more incase I spoil it.
I would reccommend this book, not just to Navy enthusiasts.

One of my favorite was the SEALS dressing as old men on the river boat in Russia. But the all time best was going under the polar ice cap. I loved every minute of that book. Most of your books, I have done on tape and George Guidall is excellent. I just can't seem to get enough of your special ops and NSA. Sincerely, Joyce

I'm about half way through P.R.'s latest book, and am amazed at the timeliness of the subject. Who could have known that a tsunami would be front page news at about the time this book was published?
I was a bit taken aback when I saw on page 68 that midnight was called Four Bells, instead of Eight Bells. My faith in PR's knowledge of the bell system of telling time aboard ships was vindicated on page 157 when 8 PM was referred to as Eight Bells.
We all make mistakes, and I'll lay this one at the feet of a Copy Editor who maybe doesn't know the bells system.
Keep up the good writing PR.
