Godspeed, Tom Clancy

I’ve studied naval history for more than twenty years, and Tom Clancy deserves some gratitude for that. His techno-military thrillers compelled me to hit the books and learn about the real submarines, sailors, aircraft, and carriers that influenced his novels. I can only imagine how much he loved his work. I’m not sure where accomplished novelists go when they die. For Tom, maybe it’s in a nuclear attack sub somewhere under the North Atlantic, chasing a Soviet Alfa into the depths.
