Acutually I think I’ll need two wives.

I was working at a navy nuclear shipyard when the book launched. More than a few eyebrows were raised with questions about possible disclosure of classified information.
That said I loved the book and movie.
My Morse is so rusty I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

-It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.

Ramius speaks initially in English, Jack responds in Russian making a comment about 'knowing your adversary' IIRC. Then he states he met him before at a conference. Thats when Ramius (in English) states he remembered seeing him and had read his book. then he makes the comment about his conclusions on Halsey.
FWiW, I did a paper grad school on Halseys decision to sail North "with three groups" during Leyte Gulf. This is now naval lore and hotly debated. Thus Ramius statement that "Halsey acted foolishly" ( a very strong opinion) is ripe with historical irony and is one of the reasons I fell in love with Tom Clancy and his works in the first place.

Unfortunately Richard Jordan passed away YEARS before his time. Liked him in a lot of movies he did.
"If you’re a leader, you lead the way. Not just on the easy ones; you take the tough ones too…” – MAJ Richard D. Winters (1918-2011), E Company, 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil... Therefore, as tongues of fire lick up straw and as dry grass sinks down in the flames, so their roots will decay and their flowers blow away like dust; for they have rejected the law of the Lord Almighty and spurned the word of the Holy One of Israel." - Isaiah 5:20,24
You see Jack I'm a politician which makes me a liar and a cheat. When I'm not kissing babies I'm stealing their lolly pops.
