When Moslem fundamentalists destroy a key Soviet oil complex, the Russians initiate a plan of diplomatic trickery for their seizure of Persian Gulf oil
A second contemporary international thriller from the author of The Hunt for Red October. One of Russia's biggest oil refineries is destroyed by a Muslim terrorist group. Facing an oil shortage that would leave their country open to economic and political disasters, the Russian leaders decide to seize the oil in the Persian Gulf. They instigate a ground war that surprises NATO and the U.S. and threatens to eliminate them as political and military forces in Europe. This long, long novel is a detailed chronicle of the air, sea, and land battles that erupt as a result of ``Red Storm''the Russian plan of attack. The Russians are clearly the bad guys herefrequently frightened, inept, or evil. The Americans are always the heroic victims of unjustified aggression or the smooth skilled winners. Frighteningly realistic. Polished. Technical. Primarily for military novel buffs. Jean B. Palmer, Phillips Acad. Lib., Andover, Mass. Copyright 1986 Cahners Business Information.
