    In fact, despite his affection for the navy, Clancy (and Bond) basically had EVERYTHING work right for the Soviet Navy in the first week or so of the Third World War.

    Of course he partially compensated for that by having the U.S. and NATO air forces "get one in early" against the bridges in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Air Force.
    I thought what he wrote was gospel...

    Hardly.

    Other writers before him (Sir John Hackett) and after him (Michael A. Palmer) have done it better.

    Clancy was faced with "How do you make it interesting when EVERY phase of such a war has been planned and evaluated to exhaustion".

    Thereby he and Bond introduced a number of "wild cards" into the mix that probably wouldn't have happened or even been attempted in real life.

    I was being sarcastic...
