When Muslim fundamentalists blow up a key Soviet oil complex making an already critical oil shortage calamitous the Russians figure they are going to have to take things into their own hands They plan to seize the Persian Gulf andambitiously to neutralize NATO Thus begins Red Storm an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuver to cloak a crash military build up When Soviet tanks begin to roll the West is caught off guard What looks like a thrust turns into an all out shooting war possibly the climactic battle for control of the globe This is an old favorite I have read it cover to cover many times The feel of the story is very much how I remember life in 1985 when the Cold War was in full force and the events of this book were a real possibility and fear Those of us in our prime draft age at the time knew we could be living this scenario at any moment and revisiting this time period evokes a strange feeling of nostalgia When this novel was written the world was a much simpler place we knew who the enemy was and we could understand what their goals wereIn terms of the military events portrayed the novel is accurate in most things The only amusingly wrong thing was the expectation of what a small 'stealth' aircraft would look like and be capable of At the time the F 117 was the deepest darkest secret technology of the American military and the speculative F 19 stealth fighter bomber imagined by the author is a not unreasonable attempt to describe a weapon system no civilian had ever seen and estimate its capabilities All in all Mr Clancy did a masterful job of creating a machine that while looking nothing like the F 117 is able to preform the same bombing missions that real world aircraft can accomplishMr Clancy also paints the war in a realistic fashion neither side has a runaway victory overwhelming the other with vastly superior technology commitment or tactics Both sides start out over confident of what they can accomplish and both sides make mistakes which the other tries to take advantage of In some cases they succeed and in others they fail but the events have a very real world feel to them much like reading a novel set in either World War where the same pattern progressed

Red Storm RisingWhen Muslim fundamentalists blow up a key Soviet oil complex making an already critical oil shortage calamitous the Russians figure they are going to have to take things into their own hands They plan to seize the Persian Gulf andambitiously to neutralize NATO Thus begins Red Storm an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuver to cloak a crash military build up When Soviet tanks begin to roll the West is caught off guard What looks like a thrust turns into an all out shooting war possibly the climactic battle for control of the globe It's Tom Clancy at his best Exceptional detail as one would expect with Clancy It is really long though but detailed It takes on many perspectives of the war and allows you to see it unfold from numerous different vantage points I especially liked the perspective of the destroyer escorts as they tried to protect the supply convoys keeping NATO supplied in the face of the Russian onslaught The detail in the ground combat is also stunning Having spent many years in Ira both working at the tactical level and the general officer level I really liked how Clancy is able to jump from one vantage point to another It's hard to find authors who can write at all levels of a conflict Some people excel at writing from the strategic level while others are great for the soldiers point of view Clancy is one of the few who can write at all levels and keep you wanting I really liked this book and highly recommend it to anyone who wants a good long read
