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.

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.

- Sherman "It was "War of the Worlds" that began my attraction to the written word. Love audio versions, but written still give me the mind image."

Great Book

There is nothing better than to read or listen to a book written by one in the know. This book was hard to turn off and split between two days. The tactics and terminology was right on and believable. Great job, sir
