I re-read "Red Storm Rising" this summer, probably the first re-read since it came out. Oh, at the time I probably read it a couple of times over. Still, was a bit of a surprise how little land combat the book actually has. A shame really, as the book is absolutely rocking through those few chapters! No wonder those memories stuck in
Team Yankee seems botched up as a Kindle edition, too bad. I'll try Chieftains next then
Just a quick follow up, having finished reading the Kindle edition. I had put buying this off quite a few time due to Amazon.com reviews such as:
3.0 out of 5 stars
Read the hardcover or paperback version. This digital version is Butchered.

I read this book in paperback when it first came out and enjoyed it. However, the digital version is simply butchered.
The novel was not scanned and digitized, it was transcribed with grammatical errors galore.
For those thinking of getting the kindle version be advised that words like "down" has been replaced with clown. And "thing" replaced with thong.
Of all digital books, this one has been through a meat grinder and I would recommend spending the time with the printed version than the digital version.
Happy to report this is not true with the current version available. So if you have an idle tenner and have not read this yet, recommended action! Tank action especially is very nicely written, while the infantry action seems to be a bit high with John-Wayne-stuff, at least based on the infantry training I took while serving as Mot Arty guy. But a recommended read regardless
