A solid and surprisingly reasonable ending to the Cold-War-turned-Hot trilogy. My only complaint was the the war ends 2/3rds of the way into the book. The rest of the story revolves around the civilians, almost entirely the American ones. It was more than a bit boring, and I couldn't help wanting to learn more about what the survivors in Europe were doing. Especially those in the Soviet satellite nations. There's enough story and interesting characters left to write an entire book on what happens after in Eastern Europe.
