"To honor bonds forged twenty-five-years ago at West Point, Lieutenant Colonel Sam Avery leads an illegal mission deep into ISIS-held territory. Flying across Iraq in a stolen helicopter, Army Lieutenant Colonel Sam Avery knows that tonight will be his last mission. He and his crew will either be shot down by ISIS, or court martialed when they return. Sam doesn't care. He can't care. There is too much at stake. As the chopper flies through the night towards their objective, Sam reflects on his time in the crucible of the United States Military Academy. West Point made Sam the man--and the leader--that he is. It taught him not only about Duty, Honor, and Country, but also about brotherhood, loyalty, and sacrifice. These values motivate him and his team as they undertake their final and most audacious Spirit Mission"--… (més)

Good book overall. Interesting concept and story. ( )

A Spirit Mission is one that is unauthorized, but undertaken for both the daring and the greater good. In his inaugural novel, Spirit Mission, Ted Russ weaves together two stories of Spirit Mission's that gather steam and anticipation as the book reaches its dual crescendo. As the two stories begin to careen toward their conclusions it's hard to put the book down.

Ted Russ' background is as a graduate of West Point, followed by service as a helicopter pilot and Special Operations. He applies his deep knowledge of the inner workings of the Academy and the Military to bring to life his characters and stories, which twist and turn like the life he appears to have experienced. ( )

The mission is unauthorized. Success is unlikely. But to save a friend, Sam Avery and his crew of Night Stalkers have prepared for one last flight.

I received this book from Librarything for an honest opinion.

Spirit Mission contains two wonderfully audacious stories. Both could stand alone, but blended together they are dynamite and should never be separated. The current story follows an unauthorized mission to save a friend. It’s very dangerous. Their lives are at stake and they all know the outcome will ruin their military careers. Why they would attempt such an ill-fated mission? The second story provides the answer.
My military background was far from the all-consuming world of West Point, but I fully understand the comradery and ideals of the spirit mission. The world of the Army cadet at West Point bleeds discipline and honor. It flows through every aspect of their lives. The spirit mission of the Navy goat is wonderful and crazy, but the possible outcome of the prank is miniscule compared to the illegal plan to rescue “the Guru” as he was known from his days at West Point. This could lead to a Courts Marshall and prison. The final decision to go for the rescue relies on the honor that they share and the ever-ambiguous decision to “doing the right thing”.
I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of Spirit Mission and look forward to reading Ted Russ’s novels for many years. ( )

Received this through the early reader program and was not disappointed. Fantastic page turner. Could not put it down, read it straight through. Wonderful characters, great flow. Could not believe this is Ted Russ's first novel. Can't wait for more. ( )
