When Moslem 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 neutralise NATO. Thus begins Red Storm, an audacious gamble that uses diplomatic maneuvers 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.

An exploration of theatre wide conventional warfare between the former USSR and NATO. Meticulous attention to detail, interweaving simultaneously a number of storylines that are dramatic and suspenseful. A boys own roller coaster that will doubtless hold you in the grip of the narration. Excellent work despite the progress of time.
