I've been talking to a couple of people I work with about this and that and the conversation moved on to what books we liked. From there two of these people said that they liked Tom Clancy for the way it was so close to the truth and how they were used as training material by the Americans. My response was that must be total balls since it's all fiction and required reading lists generally didn't include fiction. To back up their arguement I was sent the link below, which says... link This is a joke right? An international Wah at least? It seems about as useful to training as Zap Brannigans Big Book of War.
