Once again, Tom Clancy manages to add new twists to the alternate U.S. history he initiated in The Hunt for Red. The Sum of All Fears book.

The movie was obviously postponed due to "sensitivity issues". Now let's discuss the story.
It is the late s, and the world is slowly emerging from the Cold War. Obviously a work of fiction--Jack Ryan is in the midst of negotiating a solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. As this region is no longer the hub of terrorist activity, what has become of the terrorists?
Several Palestinians, radical East Germans--who no longer have a country, and even seemingly bored Americans seek to rekindle U.
How do they go about doing this? Meanwhile, in Germany, American and Russian soldiers are tricked into firing on one another. The suspicion evolves from there and tensions increase to a post-Cold War high.
Is war inevitable? While the political bickering in the White House does get tiresome, it does play a critical role in showing why there was such mistrust between the several characters in the end and a breakdown of communication--when the bomb does eventually detonate.
The Sum of All Fears
Serving as the sequel to Clear and Present Danger , main character Jack Ryan , who is now the Deputy Director of Central Intelligence , tries to stop a crisis concerning the Middle East peace process where Palestinian and former East German terrorists conspire to bring the United States and Soviet Union into nuclear war.
It debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list.
The necessity for the strike is averted, but an Israeli copy of a Mark 12 nuclear bomb is accidentally left on an A-4 Skyhawk attack aircraft, which is subsequently shot down over Syria. The nuclear weapon is lost , buried in the field of a Druze farmer.
Eighteen years later, an Israeli police captain coincidentally the brother of the downed pilot shoots and kills a Palestinian activist during a peaceful public demonstration. The United States finds itself unable to diplomatically defend Israel , yet knows it cannot withdraw its support without risk of destabilizing the Middle East.
As a nod to Israel, the U. Army supplies the IDF with more sophisticated equipment and agrees to construct a training base in the Negev Desert run by the U. Army 's tank warfare specialists. To everyone's surprise, Ryan's plan seems to work.
With their religious contentions appeased, the factions in the Middle East find it much easier to negotiate their disputes. However, National Security Advisor Elizabeth Elliot holds a grudge against Ryan and attempts to discredit him, exploiting her romance with the widowed President Robert Fowler to do so.
With her encouragement, Fowler disavows Ryan's role in the peace settlement. Unsatisfied, Elliot then engineers a smear campaign accusing Ryan of engaging in an extramarital affair, fathering a child with a young widow.
Ryan later decides to retire from the CIA, but not before he puts together a covert operation to uncover corrupt dealings between Japanese and Mexican government officials. Meanwhile, a small group of Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine PFLP terrorists, enraged at the looming failure of their crusade against Israel, come across the lost Israeli bomb and use it to construct their own weapon, using the bomb's plutonium as fissile material.
The terrorists enlist the help of disaffected East German physicist Manfred Fromm, who agrees to the plot to exact revenge for his former communist country's reunification as a capitalist democratic state. With Fromm's expertise, the terrorists enhance the weapon and turn it into a thermonuclear device. The terrorists agree to detonate the weapon during the Super Bowl in Denver , Colorado , which is planned to coincide with a false flag attack on U.

The East Germans hope that the war will eliminate both superpowers and punish the Soviets for betraying World Socialism , while the Palestinians hope the attack will destroy the Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement and end U. Thinking his work is done, the Palestinians kill Fromm. However, Fromm had not yet told them that some of the material he planned to use needed to be purified first.
The Palestinians finish the bomb assembly and when it is used, the impure material causes the weapon to fizzle. The crisis is averted by Ryan, who learns of the domestic origin for the bomb's plutonium, gains access to the hot line , and convinces the Soviet President to stand down his country's military.
When the terrorists are captured and interrogated by Clark in Mexico City, they implicate the Iranian ayatollah in the attack. President Fowler orders the Ayatollah's residence in the holy city of Qom to be destroyed by a nuclear strike.
After Ryan averts the attack by enforcing the two-man rule , Ryan lies and claims that Qom was destroyed. The terrorists then reveal that Iran was not involved, and that their deceit was meant to discredit the United States and destroy the peace process, allowing the campaign against Israel to continue.
Elliot is hospitalized after suffering a nervous breakdown , while Fowler leaves office and is succeeded by his Vice President, Roger Durling it is implied that Fowler was removed from office through the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to the Constitution , but a later novel clarifies that Fowler resigned in disgrace, while Elliott was forcibly removed. The terrorists are executed by beheading in Riyadh by the commander of the Saudi Arabian special forces using an ancient sword owned by the royal family of Saudi Arabia.
Later, the sword is presented to Ryan as a gift. In the sequels, the gift combined with his origins as a Marine inspires Ryan's Secret Service codename of "Swordsman". Written under the working title The Field of Camlan , which was based on King Arthur 's final battle, The Sum of All Fears explores nuclear fears that humans endured during the Cold War , with Clancy warning that complacency regarding such threats is dangerous.
The book was said to be inspired by the thriller film Black Sunday , which depicts a blimp being used as a weapon to blow up on a football stadium during the Super Bowl; the movie was referenced three times.
The novel also explores the danger of "electing someone who covets power for all the wrong reasons and who is totally inept at managing it", according to Marc Cerasini's essay on the book.
The title is a reference to nuclear war and to the plot by the novel's antagonists to reconstruct a lost nuclear weapon. It comes from a Winston Churchill quote serving as the first of the novel's two epigraphs:. The title also makes a subtle but clever reference to Jerusalem, where much of the action takes place. The word "fear" also refers to religious beliefs, and Jerusalem is a city important to three major world religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam , hence Jerusalem itself is the sum of several "fears.
The Vatican-like solution for Jerusalem, which was implemented in the book, is ultimately derived from the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine , which indeed provided for making Jerusalem such a " Corpus separatum " Latin for " separated body ". The course which the Palestine war took prevented implementation of this plan. In later years, various peace plans and diplomatic initiatives sought to revive the idea, but in reality it has never come close to implementation.
The plan is known for being popular outside the Middle East, but unpopular among the actual residents of Jerusalem, who would prefer that their "side" should rule entirely rather than submit to a neutral administration. A database file with certain limited details about John Clark is included as background information within the first Rainbow Six game , and moreover, the same database entry is also found in many of the sequels.
If it is canonical, though, this means that the book is not set in the same year it was published.
Clancy started working on the novel in , setting the first chapter during the Yom Kippur War.Page 94 and Even if the battles are too short and the characters bland, you are sweating bullets the entire time wondering what in the world are the bad guys going to plan and how the good guys are going to stop it.
A Guards r. At first I thought it would get better not , then I felt I'd invested so much time in it I might as well finish, then I wanted to finish it so I'd have good cause for writing this scathing review.
