    RIP Tom. I thought the best book by far was Red Storm Rising!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Sad news. Hunt for Red October was a classic. Red Storm Rising was excellent as well. He was an old war gamer which inspired him. He played a naval game, I can't remember the name now, that inspired his early works. This was all in the pre-computer days when war games by SPI and Avalon Hill dominated wargaming.

    Doug, I remember Avalon Hill games! Wow what a blast from the past that is! I have a Normandy board game and Battle of Britain game by them, bought when I was a teenager in the Mall in San Jose when visiting family in the US in '95!

    Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger were also excellent books by him and the films I think did them justice. I especially like Clear and Present Danger, the US SF Team in South America in that brutal fire fight, love it!
