Rezension bezieht sich auf: Team Yankee (Taschenbuch)A classic early 'techno-thriller' that spawned a fondly-remembered computer game, 'Team Yankee' is the tale of an M1 tank platoon fighting its way through eastern Europe in the opening fortnight of WWIII. That's it - they drive and fight and drive and fight, for fourteen days.
The approach is both honest (we learn nothing about the outside world) and slightly unsatisfying - the book lacks the political depth of a Tom Clancy novel, and the resolutely realistic tone lacks the pulpy thrills of Larry Bond. In fact it's not so much a 'thriller', as a 'mockumentary'.
Two further points that will strike you as you read the book:- 1. The Russians. They're hopeless. 2. Birmingham. Ulp.
