Haven't read him for many years but I really enjoyed his stuff back when I was reading him. There were some pretty decent movies made from his books, too.

I think the Red October took him for divulging its secret making a new conspiracy for future Clancy fans.

We will miss him.

In nineties I read all his novels that were printed in Poland - I think that basically meant everything up to Rainbow Six.

I was a big fan as well. I really enjoyed his detailed character development, and how he wove the stories with so much detail about so many characters at once.

I also liked the fact that he used some misinformation in his novel about making the nuclear weapon -- he gave a lot of details, but enough were wrong so that an effective nuclear weapon couldn't be made using his novel.

Same here; Rainbow Six is my favorite, followed closely by Op-Center.

RIP, Mr. Clancy! :frown:
