RIP.

A man lucky enough to die doing what he wanted to do (and making a quid at it).

Indeed.

Some might say a bit of an extreme marketing stunt for his upcoming "Command Authority".
:luxhello:
Perhaps a cue for someone to host a "Red Storm Rising" Operation?
Need to read the book first.

The best quip I heard at TankNet:

"Did he really die, or have a ghostwriter do it for him?"

I am soo going to hell for passing this on.

All in all, I liked his early work up until about The Sum of All Fears (despite the occisionally gross factual inaccuracies, especially in Red Storm Rising). Kudos for him making the Techno Thriller a marketable for of storytelling. Dozens of lesser authors can now make a living, thanks to Clancy.

When he started franchising his work - meh.

I'll start skinning us Schwartzkopf tanks.
