Red Storm Rising - First Edition

Clancy’s 1986 technothriller depicts a near-future World War III fought (using conventional weapons) between NATO and the Warsaw Pact, instigated by a KGB false flag terrorist attack. One of only three Clancy books not set in “the Jack Ryan Universe,” Red Storm Rising is a fascinating late Cold War era take on the classic “invasion fantasy” formula, first popularized by espionage writers like William le Queux and E. Phillips Oppenheim.

First edition, first printing, very good condition, in a dust jacket in archival acetate cover. 1987.
