Clancy's second book. He is a master of the military suspense novels. A chillingly authentic vision of modern war..... It is a story you will never forget. Hard-hitting. Suspenseful. And frighteningly real.
One of the best and most comprehensive war books to come out of the cold war, a direct and honest assessment of both sides in a war between the east and the west and the choices and mistakes made by each.
A good book. A bit hard to follow at times in the audio format since there are no breaks when the story jumps from the american side to the russian side or any other side. Good action, enjoyable characters and overall a good story. I would recomend this book.
