    Good better bestEach successive book in the aviator series is better than the one preceding it By the time we get to Book 4 Shanle has become a first rate story teller The first three books are pretty much historical fiction The characters and specific incidents that drive the stories are fictional but the context in which they are embedded are pure WWII history Code Name Infamy changes things up as pure fiction replaces history The characters in the series are fully developed and by Book 4 seem like old friends The mixture of reality and fantasy is believable and dog fights staffing and bombing runs come alive with facts only a naval aviator would have at his fingertips Speaking of facts I have just one uibble one not specific to Shanle alone but all to often to historical fiction in general especially as applied to WWII Phrases slang and military jargon have changed greatly in the past sixty plus years I can assure you the phrase Roger that never passed the lips of a man or woman in uniform in 1943 The response to a message instruction or order received was either Roger or Roger wilco Roger is the phonetic for the letter R which in turn was the letter transmitted in Morse code to indicate the message had been received The wilco is short for will comply Roger that was decades in the future of military jargon The nicknames Motown and Big Apple didn't exist in 1945 Another uibble No one addresses a Lt Colonel as Lieutenant Colonel unless it would be a senior officer reminding the Lt Colonel who is the junior of the two A Lieutenant Colonel might be referred to or presented using his full rank but would be addressed as Colonel These are admittedly minor points in otherwise good stories but still are peas under the mattress

    “Code Name Infamy” eBook was published in 2015 and was written by Leland Shanle This is Mr Shanle’s fourth book and the fourth in his “Aviator” series I obtained a galley of this novel for review through I would categorize this novel as ‘R’ as there are instances of Violence and Mature Language This World War II era Thriller novel is set in both Europe and the western Pacific during the closing days of World War II Just before Germany surrenders in 1945 an SS General Bassenheim escapes from a secret German research facility with four functional nuclear weapons Shortly after his escape US forces make a daring air landing in Germany to save scientists who had been working at the research facility from the advancing Russian army They discover that Bassenheim has left with the bombs and begin an air chase that takes them to Africa then South America Bassenheim is able to escape from South America in a German U boat and heads for Japan He is able to make contact with Japanese military leaders who are unwilling to surrender Using secret aircraft and submarines that the Japanese have been developing Bassenheim heads towards the US to make a final strike The US forces are still on Bassenheim’s trail and it becomes a race to see whether Bassenheim can be stopped before nuclear weapons can be unleashed on US cities I spent a little over 4 hours with this book and enjoyed it I had not read the prior 3 books in the series so that put me at a little disadvantage but this novel stood well on it’s own I did feel though that it was a little choppy I give this novel a 4 out of 5 Further book reviews I have written can be accessed at

    Truly the Tom Clancy of WWII NovelsMany techno thriller writers have been penned as “the next Tom Clancy” but Lt Commander Leland Shanle USN Ret is the real dealA career naval aviator with over 600 carrier landings to his name Shanle writes authoritatively and in precise seemingly effortless detail as only one of his experience can What’s he’s a writer’s writer eually adept at creating colorful memorable characters and sizzling plot linesThrough Shanle we get a peek behind the fascinating curtain of all aspects of the military from ghostly intelligence spies to esoteric terms only a career insider would know from to military tactics and strategy to Navy fighter jocks nursing crippled Hellcats to the carrier deck in black of night from nasty Nazi villains that would make Hitler blush to rogue nuclear warhead laden Japanese submarines attacking the US mainland Shanle puts you right thereCode Name Infamy the fourth in his World War II Aviator series is the first book of his I’ve read But if Infamy is any indication of what lies in store with his other works then Damn the torpedoes full speed aheadThis thriller’s author has earned his place among such techno thriller giants as Clancy Koontz and CrichtonDisclosure I am a personal acuaintance of author Shanle as he is one of our “blogging in formation” pilot authors Nevertheless I have been incredibly impressed with his writing prowess and attention to detail

    From the beginning it’s obvious that this is not the first of the series as the main characters are deposited in this story as though the audience is already familiar with them In general this didn’t have much of an effect though at the start it made for a little rough going yet I’m sure fans of the series would be annoyed if there was a bunch of exposition they’d already heard so it cuts both waysThis is a story of a crazy Nazi general who can’t accept the failure of WWII and goes to the Japanese to help him get his revenge on the US before Japan goes under as well The heroes are OSS agents whom as mentioned above seem to have been through adventures before considering their rapport It’s obvious that the author is a aeronautics buff even before reading his bio blurb at the end as we have plenty of fliers here including early aircraft carrier based planes There’s a new submarine as well not to mention nukesThe best parts involved the personal moments of the heroes from the carrier pilot having doubts about his ability or will to continue fighting to one of the OSS officers meeting a prostitute in Chile and instantly falling in love to their little hot tub party on Iwo Jima They made up for the awkward feeling at the beginning of how I’m supposed to already know these people 35 rounded up to 45

    A must read for any air combat enthusiast Retired fighter pilot Leland Shanle has woven a fast paced globe spanning tale of spies aviators and secret weapons This book has some of the best dogfights I've ever seen committed to paper; written by a man who has personally piloted everything from an F 4 phantom to civilian airliners Though part of a larger series works great as a standalone novel Highly enjoyable highly recommended for any World War 2 historical fiction fan

    Well that's the series I guessuite a author keeps the plot moving without turning it into a comic book The proof reading and historical accuracy show the work and research put into this series
