Red Storm Rising

ISBN: 0006173624
HarperCollins Publishers Ltd (1988), Paperback, 832 pages
I had read this book many years ago, and remembered it fondly. I wasn't disappointed reading it again -- its certainly a classic techno-thriller, even if it is a little dated now. I imagine it would make less sense to someone who hadn't grown up with the cold war, but within that context its a good read. The worst bit is that given what we knew back then it is so completely plausible. Great book.
