The book is 'Counterstroke', it (as well as First Clash) is Edited by Kenneth Macksey. Actually written collaboratively by the forerunner to our current Directorate of Army Doctrine (DAD). I don't have a publication date but the librarian and I both think it was late 80's probably 89, 90. The production code on it is B-GL-309-007/FT-001 (that translates to Army Library, Command series) it doesn't seem that it went into as wide a publication as First Clash. There does not appear to be an electronic copy on file but they are looking for one. They have two physical copies, one English, one French - that's it. I don't think I've read this one before so I'll give it a go. I think it was probably dumped as part of the 'Peace Dividend'! Shame.

I'll let you know how it is, and I'll keep looking.

Thanks for looking! I didn't know it was limited to two copies in the world...well, one for me. Foreign language is not my specialty.
Again, thank for taking the time to dig this up!

I've finished reading 6th battle.

Things that I learned

1. Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and Russia can join to fight a war, even if it's not clear why.
2. Russian doctrine for night cv landings is land it or crash it, it does not matter what the manual says.
3. The fastest way for a CV to break contact with enemy's SSNs is to nuke them.
4. One method to sink a modern CVs sorrounded by multiple defense capable russian ships is to do bomb runs, just like in WWII, but with help from a jammer aircraft.
5. If you are the cap'tain of a CV and it was sunk in battle, you can become vice-president of your country, but you can elect to fly one of your aircraft and suicide with it.
6. If you are with the bad guys duds and bad luck will be the norm.

I enjoyed to read it, and if you haven´t read it yet, give it a try, it's a good book., appart from this, the rest is very realistic. well, except blip enhacers, but the author didn`t know that when the book was written.
