Synopsis: Tom Clancy is one of the world's biggest-selling novelists. In his new "Commanders" series, made authoritative through the collaboration of the very commanders through whose eyes these campaigns are seen, he is revealed as one of the world's most readable military historians. General Chuck Horner commanded the US and Allied air assets during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. The right man in the right place at the right time, he combined a broad experience of all aspects of aerial warfare with a deep respect for and knowledge of Arab culture. Co-ordinating the forces of a dozen nations, he led one of the most devastating air campaigns in history. Never before has the Gulf air war and its planning - a process filled with controversy and stormy personalities - been revealed in such rich, provocative detail. Also a portrait of how war changed fundamentally in the last decade of this century, this is a real-life tale of speed, accuracy, efficiency, fresh strategy and initiative - as well smoke, fear, courage and blood...

Review: This Tom Clancy real-life military thriller is more nuanced than his novels, because its object is not simply to dramatize armed conflict but to relate the life lessons of his source, jet-pilot-turned-Desert-Storm-air-commander General Chuck Horner. Horner is no war cheerleader like General "Buck" Turgidson in Dr. Strangelove. He loathes the arrogance of the backwards, nuke-happy Strategic Air Command and the madly out-of-touch Vietnam War planner Robert McNamara. McNamara confesses his folly in two books, Argument Without End and In Retrospect, but Horner's you-are-there account more vividly demonstrates Vietnam's grim lessons. He flew an F-105 Thunderbird "Thud" fighter in the Wild Weasels, the unit with the highest medals-per-aircrew ratio, knew pilots who were stoned to death by villagers, and realized all the bombing did zero good. "All we really had to do was befriend Ho," says Horner sensibly. "Seems he wasn't part of a monolithic Communist plot, and hated the Chinese more than anything else." Horner is savvy about the screwups, the achievements, and the political maneuvering in and after the Gulf War, as leaders and branches of service battled for PR victories. His idea of a hero is Boomer McBroom's pilot Captain Gentner Drummond, who won a Flying Cross medal for refusing AWACS orders to down a jet that turned out to be a Saudi ally. Horner thinks the interservice and international cooperation in the Gulf War was way better than in Vietnam, but there's ample room for improvement. The action scenes aren't quite as brilliant as those in Black Hawk Down: A Story of Modern War, but Clancy fans will find plenty to admire. Horner's improbable survival of a 150-m.p.h. near-crash in Libya in 1962 belongs in a Tom Clancy film. --Tim Appelo
