Ted Hovey Good military-technical-thriller by Tom Clancy. I've seen the movie several times, and enjoyed it. The book is more rich in suspenseful complications, as well as in additional important characters. I think that seeing the movie first gave me images that enhanced my enjoyment of the book. The abundance of original detail indicates that Clancy must have done a lot of research in writing this book.

A memorable quote from the book: "Young men are motivated by hope, not fear."
