Tom Clancy, author, died yesterday at the age of 66. That is a real kick in the nuts as i really enjoyed his books.

Many of you may know his books, or the movies based on them. Some may have played games that are based on his work like Rainbow Six or Splinter Cell.

Requiescat In Pace.
As Yahtzee Crosshaw said in here, Tom Clancy had as much to do with the development as his goldfish. It's only his name because reasons.
Didn't know there were movies based on the books, what are their names?

Movies based on his books are "The hunt for Red October", "Patriot Games", "Clear and Present Danger" and "The Sum of all Fears" (bad movie adaption!).

Great loss to the Techno Thriller catagory  :sad:

I still remember the first book of his I ever read "Red Storm Rising" a take on the next Third World War (starting in the cold war days) Still a brilliant read, I read it on holiday again last year and so many things in it read true for now days.

RIP Tom

Sad to hear of Tom's passing. I have read all of his books and loved seeing the films made after.
.
He had a supreme knowledge of the military, so much so that the US military thought he had inside information.........which he did not.
This is because some of the things he made up.......turned out to be true and that scared the US intelligence chiefs.
.
RIP Tom Clancy     :sad:
