May be Clancy's best! If due to distractions such as a job, needing to eat or sleep or being too young to care you didn't stay glued to CNN watching the airwar part of Desert Storm with submarine launched cruise missiles flying past hotel balconies, unseen aircraft destroying a cities infrastructure with a scalpel and bombs that flew down ventilation shafts, through doors and windows and in 1 case an F/A-18 shooting down a Huey helicopter with a smart bomb you really need to read this book. It was written 3 years prior to the war and I'll bet the ranch that Generals Horner (AF) & Shwartzkopf (Army) read this book.
I had been working on 7 WTC when Iraq invaded Kuwait and during the build up we talked a lot about what was going to happen. I love tech and weapons systems are always at the cutting edge, I also read a lot. I told the guys I was working with how it was going to start. Before the war started I was sent to NJ to put up a new office building. It wasn't long after airwar started that the guys I had been working with in Manhattan were calling me in NJ and asking how I knew all this stuff. I missed the start time by 1/2 hour because as I had told them "We owned the night"
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. If this is your type of book it's a MUST read along with Harold Coyles "Team Yankee"
Excellent, detailed examination of how WWIII could play out.
RIP Tom Clancy
