The last couple of cha [...]

    4. This is a bit dry for my taste. I m not a big Clancy fan, but found this easier reading then his usual books. In the end I found that this was information over load on a topic I am only mildly interested.

    8. Too bad the author is dead - this should be updated to reflect different global strategy and roles the US Navy has taken on. Certainly informative for the late 90's.
