Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fist of God is Forsyth's best (and longest) novel. Based on the first Gulf War, it is an intriguing blend of actual events and personalities with great storytelling. The military detail rivals that of Tom Clancy's better technothrillers, and the political and espionage coverage is vintage Forsyth. In Fist of God, he weaves agents from the SAS, SIS, CIA, Mossad, and several Iraqi branches in the runup to the Coalition invasion and its short duration. Nice blend of plot, detail, suspense, and character development across the board. Also includes prescient remarks about human intelligence in what Forsyth calls "A Final Note." Written in 1994, it was ahead of its time regarding WMD, etc.

Frederick Forsyth's research has always been awe-inspiring, but this novel exceeds all expectations.
Peopled with vivid characters, brilliantly displaying Forsyth's incomparable, knowledge of intelligence operations and tradecraft, moving back and forth between Washington and London, Baghdad and Kuwait, desert vastnesses and city bazaars, this breathtaking novel is an utterly convincing story of what may
actually have happened behind the headlines.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of my favorite stories, and one of my favorite all time novels by an author I had been introduced to with this book. Forsyth writes with a passionate 'between the lines' feeling to this riveting true story, which relates much to the politics of the world's second Gulf War in 2003. In 1994 director Robert Young, inspired by Forsyth's book wrote and directed a summary-like script to the story in the form of HBO's original docudrama 'Doomsday Gun'. Whereas Forsyth's novel begins with a third-person account of the assassination of Dr. Gerald Bull, HBO's film turns the story towards the life and death of Dr. Bull. 'The Fist of God' may read like stereo instructions towards the body of explanation; (The Iraq weapons program, the violation(s) of international weapons embargo laws), watching the film first can make reading Forsyth's version so much more intriguing. Parts in the film played by actors Michael Kitchen, Francesca Annis and Marianne Dennicourt are abolished, for the book will make you see the entire story for what it was outside of the Space Research Corporation and Dr. Bull's massive (put poorly constructed) weapon. However Forsyth does'nt make an attempt to swing left of that aspect, 'The Fist of God' is simply a more detailed and much more credible source for information on what continues to be a growing mystery within the US and British governments...and of course Iraq.

If I cannot find my copy, I am going to buy another. I have read this book three times, and I found it thoroughly engrossing.
I lived in the Persian Gulf many years ago, later worked in a Swiss Bank in Basel, and later worked on the National Security Council Staff during the Carter Administration. As other readers have said, it is difficult to guess how much Forsyth really knows and how much he invents.
The story is still fascinating, and--to me at least--is far more believable than other thrillers. Given the present situation in the Iraq, this is timely again.

Forsyth once again shows why he is the master of espionage novels. The details are so vivid, you almost feel like you are eavesdropping. His handling of technical details is superb, even when explaining nuclear physics, so that even someone who has little understanding of these things has a clear idea of what's going on (I only wish he were writing high school textbooks). I think I read this thing in about two days. Top-notch.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A belated scissors and paste attempt to cash in on the first Gulf War. It reads like 50 magazine articles stitched together with a bit of 'Jane's' thrown in to keep armchair warriors like myself engaged. Characters are not even one dimensional - they are zero dimensional. Vacuous but readable in a disposable way.
