The first time I Read it I was in the North Arabian Sea in 1987, and read it in 2 day's when not working. then I re-read it another time that I took my time 4 days and it was still dead on.
Now that all this Time has passed, since 1987, I just had to Re-read it again. "27 years later "
The reason I bought the KINDLE edition is that my Copy that I Acquired is a first Edition that is Autographed by Tom Clancy along with the entire Collection from the Hunt for the Red October to the Bear and the Dragoon. all First Editions.
The Red Strom Rising Edition is one of 50 Publishers Editions that has a personal Message in it to me, from Tom Clancy.
Retired, NAVY EOD. 1973-1988 "The hard way."
I have never been a fan of such books' efforts to weave a plausible casus belli, and "Red Storm Rising" is no exception, based as it is on an oil crisis in the then-USSR. That said, the interplay within the Politburo is just as gripping as the military combat scenes. Oddly, the Washington scenes are given less attention, perhaps simply because the US is reacting to events begun in Moscow. Warsaw Pact considerations are largely absent; there are no Polish or other WP divisions with questionable political loyalty to worry about here. Nor is much time spent on NATO issues, apart from the obvious German refusal to surrender its territory. This one boils down to a slugging match between the US (and Germans, and a passing nod to the UK) and the USSR.
To some extent, these books are almost commercials for whatever the arms industry is flogging for the latest defense wish list. The systems always work as advertised and give our side just enough of an edge to prevail. Would that it were so.
These asides should absolutely not discourage anyone from reading "Red Storm Rising". I have enjoyed it immensely roughly every decade, and just finished my third reading. No one could compare with Clancy at his best, who seems to have received some sort of assistance in this from author Larry Bond.
