As good as or better than Clancy. This book makes one feel what it is like to be on the ground in a real battle.

A military and espionage thriller with world politics done in the same fashion as Tom Clancy's publications. It was decent enough, and even offered some interesting and controversial alternate visions and scenarios over the fates of some nations.

It was alright, as I said, but didn't really leave a long-lasting impression on me.

Moves quickly. Some aspects of the story are feasable as history has proven. Never underestimate the anarchist of the world especially in unstable regimes.

Re-read a couple of times and always enjoyable. A wide picture of war and conflict yet the author manages to zoom right into personal stories and viewpoints. All good stuff.
