In his brilliant, bestselling novels, Tom Clancy has explored
the most dramatic military and security issues of our time. Now he
takes readers deep into the operational art of war with this
insightful look at one of America''s most important military
engagements in recent years: the Gulf War.
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.
