Read full description of the books:
This was a Cold War novel I started but didn’t finish in the late 1980s. Too many things were going on in my life and I always meant to get back to this book. I did this week with the audio version from Audible.com. I listened through the six and a half hours straight though.
The Old Dog was a B-52 that had been upgraded with all the best technology of the late 1980s and some that were imagined like like the X-ray laser Star Wars project. The twist in this book is that the Soviets had gotten ahead of the US in laser technology and created a huge ground based radar and orbiting mirror to use in defense. An American spy plane gets caught in the beam “accidentally” and all hands are lost. Indecision by the American president and lack of preparedness leads to this 35 year old plane picking up the slack.
Lots of Cold War nostalgia and cheesiness as seen from today. Some amazing stuff and some pretty unbelievable stuff.
