The Soviet's most valuable ship -- a new ballistic-missile submarine with their most trusted and skilled naval officer at the helm -- is attempting to defect to the United States. It is high treason on an unprecedented scale, and the Soviet's mission is to seek and destroy her at any cost. If the U.S. fleet can locate the Red October and get her safely to port, it will be the intelligence coup of all time. But the submarine has a million square miles in which to hide and the deadly game of hide-and-seek is on. --------------------------------- NOTE: This book has several passages which could be confused as garbled text, plus 10 to 15 places in the text which could be mistaken for scanning errors. The passages which might be mistaken as garbled text are cryptic Naval communications, and the places which could be mistaken for scanning errors are included in the print version of the book and appear to be errors by the publisher.
Featuring Red October's charismatic hero, Jack Ryan, Patriot Games puts us on the cutting edge of another type of war, but one no less deadly, the international battle against terrorism. It is fall. Years before the defection of a Soviet submarine will send him hurtling into confrontation with the Soviets, historian, ex-Marine and future CIA analyst Jack Ryan is vacationing in London with his wife and young daughter, when a terrorist attack takes place before his eyes. Instinctively, he dives forward to break it up, and is shot. It is not until he wakes up in the hospital that he learns whose lives he has saved-the Prince and Princess of Wales and their new young son-and which enemies he has made-the Ulster Liberation Army, an ultra-leftwing splinter of the IRA. By his impulsive act, he has gained both the gratitude of a nation and the enmity of its most dangerous men- men who do not sit on their hate. And in the weeks and months to come, it is Jack Ryan, and his family, who will become the targets of that hate. Sweeping from England to Ireland to America with ever-growing momentum, its suspense steadily intensifying as Ryan must summon all the skills and knowledge at his command to battle back against his nemesis, Patriot Games gives us a remarkable set of characters in the most desperate struggle of their lives. As with Tom Clancy's two previous triumphs, it is both a marvel of the storyteller's art-and, as the headlines attest, frighteningly real.

For years, Tom Clancy has explored the military and security issues of our time in his brilliant series of novels. Now he takes readers deep into the operational art of war--as seen through the eyes of some of America's outstanding military leaders. Based on the story of the greatest American military triumph since World War II--the Gulf War--Into the Storm studies how our leaders forge people, elements, and forces together into a campaign of power and precision. Never before has the art of maneuver warfare been explored so incisively and in such rich, provocative detail. Clancy and General Frederick M.
