Publisher's Summary

During the second half of the 20th century, East and West stood on the brink of war. Nowhere was this more evident than in Central Germany, where 10,000 tanks belonging to NATO stood ready to resist a ground attack spearheaded by 40,000 Warsaw Pact tanks. It was a war that never was. But what if it had? How would the opening days of World War III played out?

Team Yankee, the New York Times best-seller by Harold Coyle, presents a glimpse of what it would have been like for the soldiers who would have had to meet the relentless onslaught of Soviet and Warsaw Pact divisions. Using the geo-political and military scenarios described by General Sir John Hackett, former NORTHAG commander and author of World War Three; August 1985, Team Yankee follows the war as seen from the turret of Captain Sean Bannon's tank.

Through Bannon's eyes, and those of the men belonging to his tank heavy combat team, the listener lives through the first 14 days of World War III. The action is vivid and exciting, the tension palpable. Defeat and death are as close as victory.

    It was "War of the Worlds" that began my attraction to the written word. Love audio versions, but written still give me the mind image.

    "Team Yankee ...Final available in audio unabridged"

    A great war of World War III in which US and NATO face Russia and Warsaw Pact in Europe. A bit dated as it was written some 30 years ago and the cold war has ended. However recent events happening in Europe today may still make the story relevant in todays world.
    The story POV from tankers seems realistic and believable, as well as the tactics described.
    I have read the book many times and listened to the abridged audio version narrated by Charles Durning repeatedly. Cronin's narration was fine in all respects, I just miss Durning's voice and characterization. That was the sole reason I gave a 4 star for performance.
    The unabridged audio version has been a long time coming. Thanks to all who made it possible.

    "Great Book"

    There is nothing better than to read or listen to a book written by one in the know. This book was hard to turn off and split between two days. The tactics and terminology was right on and believable. Great job, sir

    "Great book, loved it from page one...."
    What did you love best about Team Yankee?

    The story line - it was just captivating, it puts you in the middle of the action and pulls no punches


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The tank commander - the Hero - he was what a hero is supposed to be - loyal, brave, smart, thinks out of the box, and is always successfully.


    Which character – as performed by James Patrick Cronin – was your favorite?

    The tank commander - the Hero


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It evoked several emotions including laughter, sadness and empathy.


    Any additional comments?

    I can't wait to read more books form this author

    Would you listen to Team Yankee again? Why?

    Yes, I may have missed some stuff


    Have you listened to any of James Patrick Cronin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes he is awesome in all the books I have listened too.


    Any additional comments?

    Only problem I had with the book is the facts on the equipment the were inaccurate. Such as that the Russians didn't have Night Vision, yet they had the T72 tank. The T72 tank first went into service in late 1973. Yet the Russians had night vision earlier than 1960. In fact night vision devices where first available to the military around 1939. I know it is just a story and entertainment, but stuff like that bugs me. I think if you are going to write about it, then you should either know about it, or research it. Besides that, a fun a book to read.

    Story
    "WW3 From A Tankers POV"

    Story was quite good when first released in print. However it is now pretty dated. For example the matchup between the Abrams (first iteration) and the Russian T-72 tank is depicted as pretty much even match. Thanks to the outcome of the Gulf War, we now know that in any such confrontation the T-72 is pretty much toast. Also not much attention is paid to the impact of close air support from helicopters like the Cobra and aircraft like the A-10. Overall, a nice depiction of how American and NATO Forces would have faced off against the Soviet Union's Warsaw pact forces in a European confrontation. Pretty interesting look back at what (thank God) never happened.

    "Entertaining and believable war story"

    I enjoyed this book quite a bit. Packed full of military order of battle jargon and realistic portrayals of 80s military equipment (as far as I know anyway). I appreciated the fast pace of the story that kept the action moving forward. Highly recommended for fans of military techno-thrillers.

    Good and enjoyed it, but multiple mispronunciations, especially of army acronyms. That drove me nuts.
