Never before has the art of maneuver warfare been explored so incisively and in such rich, provocative detail. Clancy and General Frederick M. Franks, Jr.-commander of the main force that broke the back of the Republican Guard-take us deep inside the war councils and command posts and up to the front lines. They give us a war that few people really knew-and that television never showed.
“A ground-level account of the Persian Gulf War.”—Los Angeles Times
“A damned exciting read…A fascinating blend of a first-person account, a third-person narrative, a compact analysis of military philosophy and war fighting theory, and an absorbing piece of history.”—Armor Magazine
