My first contact with Larry Bond was via Harpoon, great strategy focused on naval warfare. Then I read "Red Storm Rising" he wrote in cooperation with Tom Clancy.
Although I like techno-thrillers thing that annoys me the most is that political maneuvers are always very highly polarized - you have good guys and bad guys (no gray area) and soldiers fighting (but commendably soldiers are never declared as bad guys because they are always ordered to war by the bad guys) - it is just not the way things are on the greater scale (IMO books with more grasp on reality regarding this factor are Dragonstrike/Dragon Fire/Third World War (all by Humphrey Hawksley)).
This one is not very different but nevertheless it is an interesting read. ( )
