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.

5The narration is good. However the book lacks any real plot line, contains too many acronyms and too much jargon.

this book starts up as if the reader has read the prior story. However it is not label this book too. There are many references to past events that do not make sense to a new reader.
