When Moslem fundamentalists blow up a key Soviet oil complex, making an already critical oil shortage calamitous, the Russians figure they are going to have to take things into their own hands. They plan to seize the Persian Gulf, and more ambitiously, to neutralise NATO. Thus begins Red Storm, an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuvers to cloak a crash military build-up. When Soviet tanks begin to roll, the West is caught off guard. What looks like a thrust turns into an all-out shooting war, possibly the climactic battle for control of the globe.
"Sheer grit and perserverance turn the tide in this chilling, fleshed-out war game. Readers emerge elated and breathless, with a new vision of war and its wins and losses. Clancy will win an army of fans who will be looking for more." (School Library Journal )
"He constantly taps the current world situation for its imminent dangers and spins them into an engrossing tale." (The New York Times Book Review)
"Heart-stopping action...entertaining and eminently topical." (The Washington Post)

No, there is a lot to digest
Excellent book, well worth a listen. I would rate it in my top 3 of Clancy novels
Red Russia, oil and war.
Red Russia and their Marxist views failing yet again.
It kept me wondering how bad things could have been if the Soviet Union didn't collapse.
