Fiction. Mystery. Thriller. When Muslim fundamentalists blow up a key Soviet oil complex, making an already critical oil shortage calamitous, the Russians figure they are going to have to take things into their own hands. They plan to seize the Persian Gulf, and more ambitiously, to neutralize NATO. Thus begins Red Storm, an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuver to cloak a crash military build-up. When Soviet tanks begin to roll, the West is caught off guard. What looks like a thrust turns into an all-out shooting war, possibly the climactic battle for control of the globe.… (mais)

I first read Red Storm Rising 35 years ago, after being blown away by Hunt for Red October. I eagerly consumed each subsequent Tom Clancy novel until he pretty much ran out of things to write about, though, like Larry McMurtry, it didn’t stop him from churning out substandard offerings.

Having pretty much run through my reading list, I elected to go back and reread the early Clancy novels, to see if they were as good as I remembered. I skipped Hunt for Red October, because I’ve seen the movie a dozen times and began with Red Storm Rising.

Set in the 1980s Cold War, a domestic terrorist has destroyed the Soviet’s largest refinery and put its largest oil field out of production for many months, with potentially disastrous effects for the Soviet economy. Faced with this existential crisis, the Politburo elects to seize Middle Eastern oil fields, but first must destabilize NATO.

The novel follows the military and political machinations that follow. As everyone concedes, Clancy is extremely well educated and conversant on military systems and equipment. His scenarios are well presented and believable. If anything, Clancy becomes so technical and verbose in his explanation of military engagements, that the action itself tends to take a back seat.

I think that I originally gave this novel 5 stars. Upon reflection I would downgrade to 4 1/2 stars. A very good piece of work, but not the equal of a few of his others, in my opinion. ( )

I read this long ago. I don't even remember what it was about, so I won't give it a very high rating. But I'm pretty sure I enjoyed it, FWIW. ( )

Un grupo de muhaiddines infiltrados en una de las mayores refinerías de la Unión Soviética comete un atentado. La refinería salta por los aires, y con ella, parte de un oleoducto y un campo petrolífero. Debido a este sabotaje no habrá suficiente combustible para calentar los hogares ese invierno. La situación es dramática, el pueblo no debe saber qué ocurre o las consecuencias serán imprevisibles. Miembros del Politburó y del Estado Mayor creen que la única solución es apoderarse del petroleo del Golfo Pérsico, aunque esto será motivo de sobra para que estalle la III Guerra Mundial.

Tom Clancy knew how to tell a story. This book is wonderful jumping off point for Tom Clancy novels. Engaging characters, solid action and a brilliant insight into how cold governments operated. ( )

Although the writing is unduly prolix, especially in its loving treatment of submarine warfare, the story is well told. The many readers of Mr. Clancy's first book will enjoy ''Red Storm Rising.'' His is an oddly comforting version of World War III.

From time immemorial, the purpose of a navy has been to influence, and sometimes decide, issues on land. This was so with the Greeks of antiquity; Romans, who created a navy to defeat Carthage; the Spanish, whose armada tried and failed to conquer England; and, most eminently, in the Atlantic and Pacific during two world wars. The sea has always given man in expensive transport and ease of communication over long distances. It has also provided concealment, because being over the horizon meant being out of sight and effectively beyond reach. The sea has supplied mobility, capability, and support throughout Western history, and those failing in the sea-power test -notably Alexander, Napoleon and Hitler - also failed the longevity one. - Edward L. Beach, in Keepers of the Sea

The Badger pilots were a little too relaxed, now that the most dangerous part of their mission was behind them. They didn’t spot the four American fighters until they were less than a mile away, their robin’s-egg-blue paint blending them in perfectly with the clear morning sky. Buns selected her cannon for the first pass and triggered two hundred rounds into the cockpit of a Badger. The twin –engine bomber went instantly out of control and rolled over like a dead whale. One. The major howled with delight, pulled the Eagle up into a five-g loop, then over to dive on the next target. The Soviets were alerted now, and the second Badger attempted to dive away. It had not the slightest chance. Nakamura fired her Sidewinder from a range of less than a mile and watched the missile trace all the way into the Badger’s left –side engine, and blast the wing right off the airplane. Two. Another
Badger was three miles ahead. Patience, she told herself. You have a big speed advantage. She nearly forgot that the Russian bomber had tail guns. A Soviet sergeant reminded her of it, missing, but scaring the hell out of her. The Eagle jerked in a six-g turn to the left and closed on a parallel course before turning in. the next burst from her cannon exploded the Badger in midair, and she had to dive to avoid the wreckage. The engagement lasted all of ninety seconds, and she was wringing wet with perspiration. “Butch, where are you?” “I got one! Buns, I got one!” The Eagle pulled up alongside. Nakamura looked around. Suddenly the sky was clear. Where had they all gone? “Navy Hawk-One, this is Golf, do you read, over?” “Roger, Golf.” “Okay, Navy.
We just smoked four, repeat four, Badgers for you.” “Make that five, Buns!” the other element leader called in.

Although Larry's (Bond) name does not appear on the title page, this book is as much his as mine. We never did figure out the division of labor, but what Larry and I accomplished was to complete a book as co-authors when our only contract was a handshake-and have a whole lot of fun doing it! It is for the reader to decide how successful we have been.--Author's Note. Bond is co-holder of the 1986 copyright.
