Publisher's Summary

During the second half of the 20th century, East and West stood on the brink of war. Nowhere was this more evident than in Central Germany, where 10,000 tanks belonging to NATO stood ready to resist a ground attack spearheaded by 40,000 Warsaw Pact tanks. It was a war that never was. But what if it had? How would the opening days of World War III played out?
Team Yankee, the New York Times best-seller by Harold Coyle, presents a glimpse of what it would have been like for the soldiers who would have had to meet the relentless onslaught of Soviet and Warsaw Pact divisions. Using the geo-political and military scenarios described by General Sir John Hackett, former NORTHAG commander and author of World War Three; August 1985, Team Yankee follows the war as seen from the turret of Captain Sean Bannon's tank.
Through Bannon's eyes, and those of the men belonging to his tank heavy combat team, the listener lives through the first 14 days of World War III. The action is vivid and exciting, the tension palpable. Defeat and death are as close as victory.

They came in the same way, and, we whooped them.

Very interesting and action filled novel. Covers the tactical situation of a hypothetical conventional fight between US and Russian forces in the 80s. As an individual who holds the 19k tank crewman MOS and 11b infantry MOS I can attest to the accuracy of information presented. Very stirring as a soldier who has only participated in counter insurgency operation and not full spectrum peer to peer conflict

Loved the story

Would you listen to Team Yankee again? Why?

Yes, I may have missed some stuff


Have you listened to any of James Patrick Cronin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes he is awesome in all the books I have listened too.


Any additional comments?

Only problem I had with the book is the facts on the equipment the were inaccurate. Such as that the Russians didn't have Night Vision, yet they had the T72 tank. The T72 tank first went into service in late 1973. Yet the Russians had night vision earlier than 1960. In fact night vision devices where first available to the military around 1939. I know it is just a story and entertainment, but stuff like that bugs me. I think if you are going to write about it, then you should either know about it, or research it. Besides that, a fun a book to read.
