Oh Lordy please no.... Those books that were by Clancy and were good have been torn apart by Hollzwood (exception HFROctober). Many of his recent offerings (kicking off probably with his war against japan and/or Clarke character in the 70's) and then on have been sheer sheer crap.
Absolutely - the recent attempt was fatally flawed but still enjoyable in parts.
You have to include the power armour and shoulder launched nukes or you miss the whole point of the combat scenes. Troop density of one soldier (plus suit plus nukes and Lord knows what else) per five k's or something at one point - now that's equipping the infantryman !
Showing my age now, but a book in the early 80s called 'Cruise'.
1st US Cruise missile goes rogue, ends up in Amazon.
Russians sail a sub up river to try and retrieve it - didn't counter on an old ex-SAS guy (called Ignatius Tapp!) now working as missionary in jungle.
Cue jungle fights a'la Predator-stylee (lots of dead Russkis). Russians find missile, nick off down river with it, only to discover he's rigged it with poison (from some freaky tree-frogs probably! my memory fails me!).
Cue screaming russians in out of control sub crashing to seabed. Uncle Sam retrieves real bits of missile - they thank him - he says f**k off!
