The Last Centurion is head and shoulders above the regular JD fare.  

As best I remember: Venturi is fanatical about Mussolini at first but a creeping doubt sets in. By the time he understands the real situation it's too late for anything but a warrior's death, which Johnny has no choice but to give him. I've read Greek tragedies with less force than this one.  And the views of New Rome are breathtaking.

Seeing what else is here I know it's not going to win, I'm just glad to see it mentioned.

Leopard Women

Heart of an Ocelot.

1. Johnny can fight [they all fight] - but what sets him apart from every other hero of the era is his mind.
1.i When Kat is kidnapped, Johnny must use his mechanical inventiveness. The HeatSeeker is a first
class sci-fi invention that some would argue [me] inspired modern infra-red nightscope tech.

2. Like many engineers, Johnny has deep feelings but has difficulty expressing them. In many stories he seems almost oblivious to Kat, but in this one you feel his urgency through the whole case.

I'll be the outlier for Air War. Everybody wanted to be a fighter pilot back then and Johnny was the greatest. When a friend told me 20/40 vision wasn't going to cut it I cried for a week.
