704 red armyThe story of WWIII between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. Unlike Clancy's techno-based account in Red Storm Rising, Peters delivers a story based on humans and their presence in the battlefield, as bloody, frustrating and confusing it can get. Most of the western writers who dealt with the Red Army described it as a faceless, automated entity.

Peters presents privates and officers with qualities and faults reminding that the mainstream perception that the Soviet soldiers and officers were backward and without initiative, was a well planted western propaganda element. Red Army is the story of what could have happened, told with common sense and impartiality, and these 2 elements produce the difference, when compared to other similar titles.

From the cockpit of a MIG to the foot soldiers and tankers on the scarred, bloody battlefields to the four-star general commanding the attack, Red Army is a riveting portrayal of modern war--and of human strengths and weaknesses. Seen entirely through Russian eyes, this extraordinary novel is destined to become a classic.
