This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   This doesn't happen. There is an ongoing war in Chechnya, where Russian atrocities have caught the eye of the US government.
   President Fowler believes war has begun after terrorists posing as Soviet soldiers invade western Berlin. President Fowler believes war has begun after a corrupt Russian sea captain attacks a US naval aircraft carrier.
   The START Treaty likely does not exist in the book, as it was signed less than a month before the book's publication. Ryan and Clark inspect a Russian nuclear weapons facility as prescribed by the START Treaty.
   East German terrorists disguised as Russian soldiers storm Berlin in an attempt to make it seem as if the USSR was declaring war on NATO. Note: even after Germany's reunification, Russian soldiers stayed in Berlin until 1994. A corrupt Russian air force officer lies to his pilots that the US has declared war on Russia, and orders his jets to scramble to attack the US.
   President Fowler is relatively new to the office; the previous book having ended with his swearing in. President Fowler is in the middle of his re-election campaign.
