    Maybe a little too much detail...

    I picked this book up in hopes of learning more about the Gulf War. It starts out giving you a history of Fred Franks service and was interesting. Then it gets into the art of war with a lot of definitions and strategies of war. While this may be interesting to some, it is probably boring to the more casual non-military reader such as myself. Then if finally gets back to the Gulf. While it was boring at times it is fairly interesting reading and points out that the Gulf War was not a cake walk for the warriors that fought day and night for victory. The book could probably lose about 150-200 pages and it would be a little more to the point and hold the readers interest. I gave it 4 stars because it does a good job of recognizing the great job the service men did.

    Clancy Needs to Stick to Straight Fiction

    Just another of his books where some military type 'helps' him write. Boooooring.

    A Fine Study of the Army at the Operational Level

    This book covers the story of the US Army, and one officer in particular, as they recovered from the Viet Nam era, and went on to their astounding victory in the Deserts of Iraq and Kuwait. If you want to see just what those stars on a General's collar mean, read this book.

    Salute to 'Into the Storm'

    This was an excellent and heartfelt portrayal of Desert Storm by a fabulous person, my cousin once removed, General Frederick Franks. I have had the honor to meet him, and the book does little justice to this wonderful man. Clancy's writing does nice service to the cause, but the perspective from Franks himself steals the show. The experience in Cambodia where he lost his leg was incredibly moving. I think it was a fine book and would highly recommend.

    A personal and US Army transformation

    Clancy and Franks have combined to write a terrific account of the parallel transformation of General Franks and the US Army, both wounded in Vietnam. This book could serve as a primer for the reader who wants to understand the doctrine of US Army armored and mechanized warfare.

    Clancy with another great novel

    Tom Clancy hit the jackpot again with another fabulous story. This inspiring novel has a great plot and is another great techno-military thriller. This is one of the best that Clancy has to offer.

    Stormy Review

    This book dragged on forever. Considering how many times ideas and topics were reiterated I think there may have been 100-150 actual pages of content...the rest was repetetive filler. I also got the impression from Franks that he wanted to make this book his own personal vendeta against General Schwartzkopf. I'm sorry they did not get along, but another forum should have been used to express their differences. If you have not read this book yet....don't start now.
