What Sir Richard has to say in this book is extremely important for British defence policy and for stability in Europe. He knows what he's talking about better than almost anyone and concerned citizens and politicians alike should heed what he says. The fictional narrative is an interesting and potentially compelling way of translating a very realistic wargame scenario to a wider popular audience however the story telling itself is a little amateurish and the exposition of Sir Richard's argument is often far too obvious and clumsy, or clunky. The characters are a little stereotypical with bulk described, stock back-stories. The narrative itself just cuts between three essential locations of the same groups of characters (with a few scenes as exceptions).
Very informative and significant, but sometimes feeling like a school boy vehicle for an argument.

As a former military intelligence officer who serve during the cold war in the 1970s, I find this book highly descriptive of the problems that NATO now faces. When the American president is ambivalent about NATO and defending the countries in NATO we all have a real problem. Putin only respects strength.

Any additional comments?
First off, the narration couldn't have been better. I was hoping for it not to end. Second, the author obviously knows the world in which he speaks. A stunning example of how things can go belly up in a weak Europe.
