Tom Clancy's second classic No 1 bestselling thriller - a chillingly authentic vision of modern war - now reissued in a new cover.
Three Muslim terrorists who destroyed the Soviet Union's largest petrochemical plant thought they were striking a blow for freedom. What they had done, unknowingly, was fire the first shots in World War III.
Desperately short of oil, the Kremlin hawks see only one way of solving their problem: seize supplies in the Persian Gulf. To do that, they must first neutralise NATO's forces and eliminate their response - and so they develop Red Storm, a dazzling master plan of diplomatic subterfuge and intense rearmament. The battle lines are drawn and Armageddon beckons...
From the reviews of Red Storm Rising:
`Packed with more nerve-shattering tension than anything in print today... gripping, audacious, brilliant storytelling at its very best.'
`Chilling authenticity... has the fascination of being on a high-speed train which is about to crash. The description of a submarine patrol racing for the safety of the icepack is as vivid as I ever hope to read.'
