Into the Storm: A Study in Command is the first in an extraordinary series of nonfiction books by Tom Clancy – a look deep into the operational art of war as seen through the eyes of some of America's outstanding commanders.

For more than a dozen years, Clancy has explored the military and security issues of our time in a brilliant series of novels. Now he takes us into the hearts and minds of four remarkable American military leaders to show us the nature of war and command from the inside. Based on the story of the greatest American military triumph since World War II – the victory over Iraq and the Gulf War – these books are also much more: they are studies and command and responsibility; of how leaders learn and grow; of how they forge people, elements, and forces together into a campaign of power and precision.

Beyond that, however, Into the Storm is the account of transformations – the transformation of one American Army traumatized by the Vietnam War and that of a man devastated by the loss of the leg in that war. The former became once again the world's most powerful force; the latter, one of his country's most honored commanders – the first amputee active-duty general since the Civil War. Together, the story of that army and that man, and the wars they fought, make "Into the Storm" an instant classic of military history.
