This is a book that makes you want to weep.
-London Review of Books


Tom Clancy, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Jack Ryan novels--including his latest blockbusters Command Authority and Threat Vector--delivers an electrifying tale of international conflict.

Using the latest advancements in military technology, the world's superpowers battle it out on land, sea, and air for the ultimate global control.

A chillingly authentic vision of modern war, Red Storm Rising is as powerful as it is ambitious.

It's a story you will never forget.

Hard hitting. Suspenseful.

And frighteningly real.
