Good story, good narration, good pace

(I usually give a good, decent book 3 stars; so 4 stars is, in my view, above average)

I enjoyed this story considerably more than I thought I would - it was a bit of a gamble.

The story, and setting, is excellent. It's 1992 and the Soviet Union is alive and kicking. Without ruining the story, the US is drawn into a conflict in the Persian Gulf.The story revolves around a US space station and the surveillance and military support it can provide to this conflict.

The story is fast-paced with plenty of action to keep the listener engaged - there's plenty of incidents involving, for example, carrier strike fleets under attack. There didnt seem any obvious gaps from this being an abridged story.

The narration is excellent, with characters really brought to life thanks to some decent (if corny!) Russian accents.

If I had to find a criticism, it's that I would like to have heard more about the main theatre of conflict - the Persian Gulf itself! Certainly it gets a fair amount of air time, but I'd happily listen to more on what was a well-researched, well played out cold war conflict.
