From the Publisher
For years, Tom Clancy has explored the military and security issues of our time in his brilliant series of novels. Now he takes readers deep into the operational art of war--as seen through the eyes of some of America's outstanding military leaders. Based on the story of the greatest American military triumph since World War II--the Gulf War--Into the Storm studies how our leaders forge people, elements, and forces together into a campaign of power and precision.Never before has the art of maneuver warfare been explored so incisively and in such rich, provocative detail. Clancy and General Frederick M. Franks, Jr.--commander of the main force that broke the back of the Republican Guard--take us deep inside the war councils and command posts and up to the front lines. They give us a war that few people really knew--and that television never showed.
About the Author
Thomas L. Clancy, Jr., known to his multitudes of fans as Tom Clancy, was born in 1947 in Baltimore, Maryland. He graduated from Loyola College in 1969, became an insurance agent, and in 1973 became the owner of an insurance agency. It was not until 1980 that he started writing military thrillers. Clancy's novels are highly successful, detailed techno-thrillers about espionage, the military and advanced technology. Clancy is so well liked by the military that he has been invited to visit military bases and tour ships. His first bestseller was Red Storm Rising, a fictional military account of a conventionally fought World War 3, published in 1986. His books Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games, and Clear and Present Danger were so popular they were adapted into major motion pictures. Some other bestsellers by Clancy are The Cardinal of the Kremlin, The Sum of All Fears, and Rainbow Six. Into the Storm: A Study In Command (1997) is part of a nonfiction series cowritten with retired U.S. Army General Fred Franks Jr., commander of the U.S. Army VII Corps, whose job was to defeat Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard during the 89-hour ground war in Desert Storm. Other nonfiction written by Clancy includes Submarine, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, and Airborne, which describe the workings of military units and their weapons, and Reality Check: What's Going on Out There? Tom Clancy lectures at the FBI, attends meetings at the CIA, and often dines at the White House. He is a member of the U.
From Our Editors
General Frederick M. Franks,
Jr., commanded the armor and infantry of VII Corps, the
main coalition force that broke the back of Iraq's Republican
Guard. Never before has the land war, and the art of maneuver
warfare itself, been explored so incisively and in such rich,
provocative detail as that of Into the
Storm. Tom Clancy and
Franks take readers deep inside the war councils
and command posts and up to the front lines, to show us a war that
few people even knew; a war that television never showed.
