A PENETRATING LOOK INSIDE AN ARMOURED CAVALRY REGIMENT: THE TECHNOLOGY, THE STRATEGIES AND THE PEOPLE – PROFILED BY TOM CLANCY, NO.1 BESTSELLING NOVELIST.
In 'Submarine', the first book in the Tom Clancy Military Library, the bestselling author of 'Debt of Honour', 'The Hunt for the Red October' and 'Clear and Present Danger' captured the reality of life aboard a nuclear warship. Now, in 'Armoured Warfare', Tom Clancy turns his attention to the army, and with the same compelling, you-are-there immediacy of his acclaimed fiction provides detailed descriptions of tanks, helicopters, artillery and more – the brilliant technology behind the US Army. He captures military life – from the drama of combat to the daily routine – with total accuracy, and reveals the roles and missions that have in recent years distinguished the fighting forces.
'Armoured Warfare' includes:
• Descriptions of the M1A2 Main Battle Tank, the AH-64A Apache Attack Helicopter and more
• Strategies behind the Desert Storm assault
• Exclusive photographs, illustrations and diagrams
• From West Point cadet to Desert Storm commander – an interview with a combat cavalry officer on the rise
Since the phenomenal worldwide success of ‘‘The Hunt for Red October’, his controversial, ground-breaking first novel, Tom Clancy has become one of the world’s fastest-selling thriller writers. Three of his novels have been made into highly successful films: ‘The Hunt for Red October’, ‘Patriot Games’ and ‘Clear and Present Danger’.
