Finished it the other week, but wanted to reread bits of it before moving on to Direct Action (book three). I think my favorite moments were at the beginning, Deckard trying to get Samantha to sign the contract after the team rescued her - comedy gold!
My second favorite being the discussion between Frank and Deckard before the Guatemala op. When Frank informed Deckard that they had a platoon on a Guatemalan bird and they borrowed some parachutes. Deckard's immediate response "the Kazakhs aren't airborne qualified", followed by Frank's reply "they will be in about three minutes when Pat kicks them out the door at five hundred feet"! 😂
It reminded me of a story I heard about a Thai prince that went through Ranger School in the 80's. Apparently his English wasn't the greatest, when it came time to do the jump between phases, I guess he thought that airborne training was going to be included. Well, as the story goes, he loaded up, and got his first jump at the school house. RI's didn't find out it was his first until he touched down in the DZ commenting about it. That's one way to learn hahaha!
