Reading "The invention of God: the natural origins of mythology and religion" is a slog of writing but the premise is spot on. And, rereading "The Command of the Ocean: 1649-1815". And I have started "Some assembly required".
Yep. Clancy was the master of his milieu. When Red Storm Rising came out I started reading it and never put it down. That was quite a session.Re-reading The Hunt For Red October after watching the absolutely atrocious "Without Remorse" movie. What a mess. I needed to remember why Clancy was so good at what he did.
