Inhaltsangabe

During the second half of the 20th century, East and West stood on the brink of war. Nowhere was this more evident than in Central Germany, where 10,000 tanks belonging to NATO stood ready to resist a ground attack spearheaded by 40,000 Warsaw Pact tanks. It was a war that never was. But what if it had? How would the opening days of World War III played out?

Team Yankee, the New York Times best-seller by Harold Coyle, presents a glimpse of what it would have been like for the soldiers who would have had to meet the relentless onslaught of Soviet and Warsaw Pact divisions. Using the geo-political and military scenarios described by General Sir John Hackett, former NORTHAG commander and author of World War Three; August 1985, Team Yankee follows the war as seen from the turret of Captain Sean Bannon's tank.

Through Bannon's eyes, and those of the men belonging to his tank heavy combat team, the listener lives through the first 14 days of World War III. The action is vivid and exciting, the tension palpable. Defeat and death are as close as victory.

A bit much of describing battle

I found it relatively OK and enjoyed it. The book focuses much on describing military as well as combat situations. The end is a bit too unspectacular. The book uses much military jargon, so it helps when you know what an APC is or an S1. There are no surprising turns in the story, but again I liked it.

Just kinda boring

The book is kind of a generic "WW3 story" from the point of view of a tank crew. It's maybe not horrible but if was very boring. The American side just feels way to strong as the good guys. Even if it may have played out like that in real life, the danger to team Yankee felt not existing except the part wout hill 14 (not even sure if it was really called that way)
I wouldn't recommend it for just 1 good chapter.
