Although, I haven't finished Combat Ops yet, but I got a feel of what's to come. This sequel is the best in my opinion, the first person thoughts of Scott Mitchell. The story involves Mitchell and his Ghost team in Afghanistan, and the are on the hunt for a terrorist who is big in the area.

The story definitely potrays, in my opinion, the chaos, confusion and incompetence of the war in Afghanistan today. I feel that it is done well. The utter chaos that Mitchell goes through is well done, the characters are excellent.

It's a very intense thriller of war and it's a definate must read.

Mission conflict: Two crack army teams operate out of the same compound near Kandahar in southern Afghanistan. One team builds; the other team kills!

Captain Harruck's team is there to win the hearts and minds of the locals. Captain Mitchell and his Ghost Recon team is there to assassinate Mullah Mohammed Zahed, the vicious Zhari district Taliban commander, and overlord of Sangsar. But, intimidation aside, the locals seem to prefer Zahed over the legitimate Afghan government.

Many of the situations Harruck and Mitchell encounter (how the U.S. army pays the Taliban for logistics support and those infamous Poppy Palaces) are right out of current newspaper articles and various white paper reports. The treatment of women as chattel is played out right down to its tragic consequences.

Through Mitchell's eyes we follow two young army captains as they confront these issues, discharge their duties, and narrowly avoid killing each other.

From Clancy I expect action and there's plenty of it here. But there's no denying this is a dark, provocative study, a thinking person's plot, maybe even an important story with a lasting message.

I'm not going to tell you about character development or editing (which were both superb) What I am going to tell you that this book should be on every Military Officer's read list. They need to have conversations about the issues of Honor, Integrity, and the Issues of Command this book brings to life. In the end, the thing most civilians don't and cannot understand is the bond between Special Operators that allows them to function under times where others would have to spend the rest of their lives under mental health care. As a mid level NCO I passed a course that had a 97% attrition rate. I was Commissioned several years after that. As a company grade officer I was forced to attend what passed for a course on how to manage a military bureaucracy. The point here is that many officers are.Now sadly managers - not leaders of men (the generic term). In the end, this is a superb book and it brought out the realities of life under fire.

Just like the other Ghost Recon series books, I really enjoyed this. Action packed and intense from beginning to end. This probably isn't for everyone, but I loved it and recommend it.

Loved the intensity of this one. Have read the other 2 and would suggest them to any vet who served and endured the b/s that they had to put up with from the elected people.

Fact or fiction ? Makes one think about what really happens in the world events regarding people and power and who is really paying the ultimate price.

I've been reading Tom Clancy for 20+ years now, and this is the first of any of his books, ghost authored or not, that I found truly disappointing. Relative to a typical Clancy story, the plotline was far too simple and lacked the anticipation I'm used to. This seemed like more of a political statement or debate about the current conflict than it did a Ghost Recon unit story. If I wanted a political narrative I'd turn on Fox or MSNBC. Then there's the lack of character in the characters- some of his characters might commit questionable acts in accomplishing a mission, but they NEVER intentionally kill innocent friendly forces then cover it up at multiple levels. Highly disappointing.

It's been years since I read the first of the series, but I recall it was much truer to Clancy's style. I'm not sure I'll continue with this series.

My husband thoroughly enjoyed the book. He has read all books by Tom Clancy. He will miss reading his books.
