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

Team Yankee ...Final available in audio unabridged

A great war of World War III in which US and NATO face Russia and Warsaw Pact in Europe. A bit dated as it was written some 30 years ago and the cold war has ended. However recent events happening in Europe today may still make the story relevant in todays world.
The story POV from tankers seems realistic and believable, as well as the tactics described.
I have read the book many times and listened to the abridged audio version narrated by Charles Durning repeatedly. Cronin's narration was fine in all respects, I just miss Durning's voice and characterization. That was the sole reason I gave a 4 star for performance.
The unabridged audio version has been a long time coming. Thanks to all who made it possible.

Excellent !

Finally ! a novel that captures (modern) armoured warfare as it would have been, from the tiny details that make every Tankers day a chore, to the adrenaline filled race to engagement, so well described and captured here that it made me nostalgic for the confines of my tank, the smell of main gun, co-ax and sweat, are such a large part of my memories that this book made me want it all over again, the exhilaration of riding atop a 60-70 tonne behemoth charging forward, gun sweeping left and right looking for targets is bought to the fore with the scenarios realistically played out within. An excellent portrayal and one of the best WW3 novels I've read.

Took me back

I used to read this book in the army years ago waiting for the reds to come over the wall. Living near Birmingham it really brings it to life. I've read it dozens of times. So glad it's in audible, well done Mr Coyle!!! Thanks for the memories

interesting cold war gone hot book

Writer is a former member of a tank company that was in the area he is writing about. Shows through with the story feeling organic with slang and such. Worth picking up and wasn't as gung-ho America as I expected

I enjoyed it

It was worth listening to, it filled in some time, I had not trouble becoming involved in the story. The characters and descriptions were good. I would recommend this book.
