If you are like me you enjoy a good military drama. One of the best authors in this genre that ever lived was Tom Clancy. His books were so riveting that many were converted over to the big screen, including the Hunt for Red October, Clear and Present Danger and Patriot Games.
One thing that Tom Clancy did NOT consider was the enormous Estate Tax that his family would have to pay at his death. Some intermediate level planning could have saved his family a fortune!
