APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
At the height of Reagan-era tensions between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, when nuclear missiles could bring global calamity at any moment, political-thriller master Tom Clancy sent shockwaves through America’s bestseller lists. Exploring a terrifying WWIII scenario, his 1985 novel enraptured readers with its pulse-pounding action and impeccable detail. The first domino falls when extremists sabotage a key Soviet oil plant, and the USSR hatches a plan to seize more petroleum in the Persian Gulf. That…does not go as they planned, and from that point, the high-stakes, white-knuckle intensity never lets up. From submarine battles in the North Atlantic to airstrikes over Norway and a climactic NATO vs. KGB showdown, every shot fired will have you biting your nails. Generations of fans have adored this novel, all grateful that its chilling events haven’t come true. One of the most exciting techno-thrillers of the Rambo era, Red Storm Rising has only grown more relevant with age.
