As a commander of Delta Force - the most elite counter terrorist organization in the world - Pete Blaber took part in some of the most dangerous, controversial, and significant military and political events of our time.

As the smoke clears from exciting stories about never-before-revealed top-secret missions that were executed all over the globe, listeners will emerge wiser, more capable, and more ready for life's personal victories than they ever thought possible.

Somewhat about leadership.

More than anything it commiserates about the frustrations of trying to be a good leader in an organization that doesn’t have a hot clue about teaching leaders to put their ego last.

Damn god read though.

The Sea Wolf sets out to search for the Metal Islands. Leading the expedition is legendary Hell Diver Xavier Rodriguez. After enduring a decade on the poisoned surface, his survival skills will be put to the test on the dangerous open seas. But storms, sea monsters, and the cannibalistic Cazadores aren't the only threat to X and his small crew. Their mission will uncover hard truths about the history of the war that left humankind stranded in the air for centuries. The fate of those still living on the airships might very well rest on this perilous journey to find a new home.

This book, and most of the series, is a tale of people making predictably bad choices. Predictable to the point it beggars belief and takes the reader out of the fantasy, which is why one reads, after all.

It ends well, with a hook for the next installation, despite the implausibly of what goes down.

Ordinary Men is the true story of Reserve Police Batallion 101 of the German Order Police, which was responsible for mass shootings as well as roundups of Jewish people for deportation to Nazi death camps in Poland in 1942. Browning argues that most of the men of RPB 101 were not fanatical Nazis but, rather, ordinary middle-aged working-class men who committed these atrocities out of a mixture of motives, including the group dynamics of conformity, deference to authority, role adaptation, and the altering of moral norms to justify their actions.

If you already understand the subject matter the book doesn’t start until chapter 18. The previous chapters are simply escalating accounts of atrocities to understand how horrific what these men did, and what the citizens in society approved.

Overall worth the credit.

After recovering Patient Zero, Alpha must escape Africa to end the ZA once and for all. But they can feel the hot breath of a reinforced and vengeful Spetsnaz team on their necks - and there can be no escaping the reckoning of an ultimate sniper showdown between Ali and Vasily, and an incomparably brutal iron-cage Texas death match between Predator and Misha. For the first time, all the teams will come together and must fight as brothers for any chance of making it back to Britain. And only one thing is certain - not everyone is walking away from this one.

I was pretty deep into the series financially and time wise. I held on hoping for a turnaround. I ended up cheering for the Russians and the Zombies, hoping all the main characters would get wiped out.

This whole thing ought to have been wrapped up within the first six books. The last six have been virtually the exact same cycle over and over again as I have previously detailed.

In the immortal words of John Maclean in the second instalment of Die Hard:

'How can the same Sh** happen to the same guy twice?'

Well, this series has the same stuff happening in every....single....book.

At a certain point, probably around book 6, your realize the author is unwilling to kill off main characters and that takes almost all of the suspense out of it.

Now you have single operators are taking out five enemy operators and coming out with only minor wounds, or major wounds that somehow don't have any notable impact on their performance. Taking out a flood of zombies, firing off so many rounds their gun barrels would overheat and firearms would become unusable.

This would be more believable if it was set in a world where the operators had super powers like the avengers, or were immune for some reason already, etc.

As it stands the series has become predictable and redundant. Insurmountable odds on all fronts, everything going wrong all the time for everyone, literally all coming down to the last possible second with only a one and a million chance of success, then everything works out. The book ends, then you repeat it again next book.

Were I not already so deep I would not be willing to hold on in hopes the plot improves, but I don't have anything else to use my credit on at the moment.

The world's last floating nuclear supercarrier looks into the face of oblivion as her thinned, exhausted, and beleaguered crew face the largest herd of dead ever recorded. Soon the ship's five-acre flight deck will become the scene of a furious and desperate set-piece battle - like no combat any modern army has seen since Stalingrad. The ranks of the dead are infinite, and those of the living are tiny, depleted, and running out of time...and of hope.

Literally every main character is always in unsurvivable circumstances every second yet survives.

The climax is basically never the climax and even when it is completely incredible somehow every one of the main characters survives.

Always mere moments from death surrounded by unbelievable numbers of zombies who do spectacularly non zombie like things. Incredibly somehow every one in of the main characters survives.

With debilitating injuries, critically low on blood, having no respite for days everyone is still capable of inhuman feats of strength, endurance, and cognition. Incredibly somehow every one in of the main characters survives.

This series just went from enjoyable to eye rolling, tedious bologna.
