Coyle presents a thrilling and plausible look at a low-intensity
Coyle presents a thrilling and plausible look at a low-intensity US-Soviet engagement over Iran c.1980s. The book provides readers with fantastic detail into the equipment, tactics and strategy of modern conventional war to give the average reader a solid understanding of the intricate risks he in which he places his characters, which in many ways parallel those experienced by combatants in modern conflicts worldwide. Coyle also presents, through a number of well-chosen character perspectives, a compelling estimation of the political dynamics of this fictionalized armed conflict, within the Soviet Union, the United States, and Iran. What Coyle lacks is interpersonal story. The love story he constructs between a US male and female officer is half-heartedly developed. The book's maze of narratives serves plot purpose moreso than any character development. However, it is a fantastic book if you are looking for a well-constructed Tom Clancy-esc novel with an exceptional attention to tactical and strategic detail.Was this review helpful?
