Welcome to High Carb Books. This website is about the facts behind fictions. I will try to provide actual information on the places, historical characters, and objects mentioned in the stories to help bring imagination closer to reality.
The first novel I will be researching is Red Storm Rising by Tom Clancy. I am quite a Tom Clancy fan. His novel The Hunt for Red October started me reading years ago.
Red Storm Rising is a fictional novel about World War III started by the USSR after a Moslem terrorist attack, which left them with a severe oil shortage. The leaders of the USSR believe the only logical solution to the crisis is to take the oil by force from the Persian Gulf. The book vividly illustrates the war through the eyes of several individuals on both sides of the fence.
