I read this novel while serving a few years after it was published. I worked in one the the primary rates that the story focuses on. Found Clancy's understanding of the overall dynamics of the cold war frightening. I could not put this book down until I was done. It was read by most of my division and by the time I got it back, it was in tatters...but everyone loved it. This was his second book and I think it really put him on the map for a lot of readers. His first book, Hunt for Red October was great, but limited in scope to primarily ASW. This novel showed that his mind was keen to an overall picture that was poised to happen for 40 years. Younger readers might have a tough time understanding some of the "how could this happen" as the Soviet Union has been dissolved for a while. The world was living in the intrigue of the of the first few chapters for most of the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's. This novel could be thought of as a history lesson based on a fictional line of events. It was that close...great read, and it is out as an Ebook for my Nook as well!

Reality or NOT?

Too many tungue-twisting names. Hard to decide who the good guys are.
