Well I’ve done a search and found several threads on post-apocalyptic novels but none on this subject.
A subgenre I have a particular interest in is novels or books depicting plausible scenarios for World War Three or the end of the world, with a particular emphasis on NATO/Warsaw Pact battles, but its all good
Anyone have any recommendations? Here are some I have in my collection:
Red Storm Rising by Tom Clancy - Probably the best known of its type, excellent stuff and I’m not a particular Clancy fan.
The Third World War by General John Hackett - (and its sequel “The Untold Story”)
Arc Light by Eric L. Harry - Any book that starts with Russia, China and America nuking each other is just going to be interesting.
Domain by James Herbert - The first few chapters are chilling.
Total War 2006 by Simon Pearson
Ende: A Diary of the Third World War by Anton Andreas Guha - Found this hidden in the back of a second hand book shop. An English translation of the German original depicting the daily diary of a civilian caught in the central battleground of WW3, close to the Inner German Border. Very powerful stuff.
Warday by Whitley Streiber and James Kunetka
Resurrection Day by Brendan DuBois - The Cuban Missile Crisis turns hot.
Silent Night by Cyril Joly - NATO loses.
The Cold War: A Military History by David Millar
The Claws of the Bear by Brian Moynahan
Any recommendations? (don’t have to be Cold War scenarios and End of the World stuff is appreciated)
