every man a tiger

I know this isn't the bok forum but I wanted your political opinion on this book and author.
I just read Every Man a Tiger by Tom Clancy
Every Man a Tiger is the story of two revolutions: of how a service damaged by Vietnam reinvented itself through vision, determination, and brutally hard work -- in Horner's words, "We had to learn how to be an Air Force all over again" -- and of how war changed fundamentally in the last decade of the century, not only in the new dominance of air power, but in all its aspects. It is a story of speed, accuracy, efficiency, information, and initiative, as well as of smoke, fear, courage, and blood. It is a front-row seat to a man, an institution, a war, and a way of war that together make this a classic of military history.

I already had plenty of respect for millitary people being an ex squid myself but I did find a new respect for them in this book. The average person seems to only hear the bad crap about solders through the media but this book gives the reader some perspective on the type of people who are the back bone and heart of Americas millitary.

For everyone that hates the millitary, do you think Clancy is a propagandaist because of this indepth analysis that puts the millitary in a pretty glowing light?

Tom Clancy=world's biggest military propagandist

That bastard even has his own video games (about a dozen of them). I play them all the time.

My family is four generations Navy. My great grandfather was in WW2,my grandfather in Korea,and my dad in Vietnam. They all talk shit about the military now that they're out,but they had grandiose fantasies while in. I think seeing pictures of peoples' heads blown off from sniper rifles and AK's really turned me off from the idea. Thank you rotten and ogrish.
