It's ok.The author needs to stop having non-British characters use 'britishims' in their language, though. Americans don't say 'kit' or 'bugger' or 'chap'.
I really wanted to give this a five star rating but, unfortunately , there just wasn't enough action. This book is a large build up of the military with a few action scenes thrown in. That being said, towards the end of the book, the action steps up and delivers. I will read the second book (I already have it) and I hope it continues. There is a lot of military jargon and acronyms that may throw off quite a few readers. Enjoy!
Staggering detail and very realistic interplay between the characters. Harvey Black's geopolitical survey is beautifully intertwined with the personal stories of his characters. As I have a services background, many of the scenarios were very familiar, but the detail may perhaps make the story a little inaccessible to a wider public. But he builds tension relentlessly and you desperately care what is going to happen.I'm looking forward to the next book!
A good readis was a good read. it covers the ground units on both sides as they prepare for war and then as it starts. I can't wait to read the other two books in the series.
One word OUTSTANDING! Can't wait for the next installment.
It's hard reading a book of this topic (WWIII soviet invasion of Europe) and not compare it to Red Storm Rising (Tom Clancy). In that comparison, this book doesn't do very well. The Red Effect seems to care more about what unit/brigade/division everybody belonged to than character development or storyline. Maybe I would have liked it better if I had a map of Germany open at all times while reading it. If you don't know where these towns are, it loses any significance that they represent. Besides [...]
I wanted to like this book but in the end it amounted to a book about nothing. There were whole swathes which didn't seem to have a point. The entire book could have been compressed to 150 pages without any great loss.
To slow going for me.
Pretty good alternative history of the Third World War, although not up to the standard of the Armageddon Song Series by Andy Farman. Still pretty good & worth a read if you like this type of book
