Without Remorse

Without Remorse is a novel by Tom Clancy set in 1970, in the middle of the Vietnam War. John Kelly (former Navy SEAL) is tired of war, and resigns from the United States Navy to run an underwater demolition service. From this point on, his life is a series of tragedies, where the final crisis results in Kelly eing critically wounded, and his girlfriend killed by a drug selling operation.

From this point on, Kelly takes charge, both in a private war against the drug business which killed the girl he loved, and in a military operation to free dozens of secretly held POWs, where he is operating as a John Clark, believed to be CIA.

The main purpose of this book appears to provide a setting to build the character of John Clark, as a highly intelligent, strong and resourceful persona, also possessing the strong moral fiber that tags a character in a novel as 'good', distinguished from 'bad' or insignificant.
