Rated 5 out of 5 by from Into the Storm: A Study in Command As with all of Clancy's books, I found this one to be technically proficient. However, this book is not only for the military-at-heart. It truly is a study in command. General Franks led me through his views on leadership, public service, loyalty, desire, passion, and fortitude. From early accounts about his personal trials and tribulations as the result of his Veitnam experiences, to his agonizing over the human cost of his leadership decisions in the Gulf; I found this book to be a classic in leadership experience. A must for future leaders in any field.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What We Missed On CNN While most of us saw a lot of the air campaign in Desert Storm, we know little about the ground war (besides the fact that the Coalition pounded the Republican Guards). This book gives a very detailed account of the operations of VII Corps, now disbanded, commanded at the time by General Franks. As well, the reasoning behind a number of command decisions, operations that were planned but never implemented (due to the cease fire), and changes in training and doctrine from the 1970s to the present are also covered (and covered well); the last chapter dealing with recent changes and how new technology is integrated into the army is particularly valuable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Into the Storm Hello, fellow readers. I am a grade seven student in Vancouver, and I must say, that this is one portentous book. I was astonished on how much detail their was in this book. I was also amazed on how close you get to the front lines you get in this book. I literally couldn't put this book down! In a nutshell, I reccomend this book to any and all readers who want an entertaning story to read at night.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Oy Intense! If you cannot handle techincal non fiction documents this is not for you. While it is a good view of the command structure and decisions made in the Gulf War it seems to diverge off for the longest time, forcing the reader to try and keep focus. Unless you're REALLY interested in this stuff go elsewhere. His other non fiction work seems much better than this.
