First Clancy novel I read. Very interesting story - and if I may say so, very believable because universal society rule says -> if you are in social trouble go to war, because in that case you have 50:50 chances (or better if your military might is [vastly] superior to your opponent ) to calm down your folk and proceed on (I think recent events are more then proof for this).[return][return]Only thing that annoys me is that we-win-no-matter-what-they-do. Although I can understand this I think this scenario is least likely than all. More realistic scenario can be found in "Third World War" by Humphrey Hawksley - when major powers collide population survivability is extremely low for all sides in conflict (and those caught in the middle).[return][return]Beside that good novel with lots of interesting military hardware info (Clancy's trademark :) )
