I thought this book was pretty bad. I suggest you read Peters's book The War in 2020 instead - it is fantastic. Flames of Heaven is also pretty good, as is Red Army.

I don’t read many suspense novels anymore, because fiction seems like a waste of time when there is so much nonfiction you can read and actually learn something. But I’ll make an exception for Ralph Peters because I admire his skill with language and I know his thrillers are always grounded in fact. He knows the Army, geography and world politics.

This is the first of Peters’ suspense novels, but I had not read it until now (2015). Once I started it I could not put it down, and it’s been a long time since I read fiction that grabbed me like that. The protagonist, Thorne, is a military intelligence officer who works undercover in the hotspots of the world. He’s a burned-out idealist who evolved from liberal college student to Army platoon leader because he felt it was his duty to lead, to try to influence things, even though he had doubts about America’s role in the Vietnam War. He’s haunted by something that happened in Vietnam and by many things that have happened since he went undercover. Also contributing to Thorne’s burnout is the dawning realization that nothing he has done or suffered has made any difference in the world. The sense of doom, the dark (realistically and metaphorically) environments in which Thorne operates, seem to qualify this book as noir, as I understand that term.

The story is set in Germany, with stops in Greece, Turkey and other countries, in the late 1970s. Thorne is assigned to discover the identity of terrorists who have bombed a U.S. military commissary. That’s the reason he’s in intelligence, to protect lowly young soldiers and, especially, their wives and kids—the kind of people who were killed in the commissary bombing. But as in all good thrillers, no one, including his own superiors, is what he or she seems. Peters keeps you guessing and flipping pages right to the bitter end, rooting for the doomed, tragic hero.

Along with his descriptions and analysis of various countries (circa 1979) and the dark, dirty, violent world of espionage, I enjoyed Peters’ portrait of Thorne, the sensitive but tough-as-nails Army officer, who started out in life hoping to become a poet. Years ago, when I read my first Peters thriller, the unconventional Army-officer hero was what tipped me off that this author knew the Army from firsthand experience. I doubt if a writer would create heroes like Peters’ unless he understood what an incredible variety of personalities and backgrounds exist among the officer corps—something I discovered during my own very brief time as an officer many years ago.
