About the Book
This "New York Times" bestseller--called "a ground-level account of the Persian Gulf War" by the "Los Angeles Times"--is now in paperback and features an all-new chapter on Operation Enduring Freedom.
From the Publisher
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.
