I surprisingly haven't read many of these.

Red Storm Rising is pretty good.
Red Phoenix is not World War III, but it's about the second Korean War. Quite well written. Has a few inaccuracies such as South Korea having A-10s, but it's somewhat forgivable because it seems odd that the RoKAF DOESN'T have A-10s. The scenario is plausible in the early 80's but has pretty much no chance of occurring now.

Amazon.com's got their list with some others.
Team Yankee (Harold Coyle): About an M-1 crew in the Fulda gap during an invasion.
The Third World War (John Hackett): Apparently this guy wrote it with declassified stuff regarding NATO plans.
Fail Safe (Eugene Burdick): The USA starts World War III by accident (did you just get stiff EagleHammer?)

Tom Clancy's... which means it's actually written by some dude we never heard of.

Arc Light by Eric Harry has some interesting parts.

If your just need to read about fighting there's a writer called Ian Slatter (I may be spelling his last name wrong) but he wrote a whole series called WW-III, not the greatest writer but good bathroom reading stuff. He also wrote a series called Seal Team Seven, I think there are only six teams but its fiction. Better then reading Dale Brown's wonder jets and generals who never get in trouble or grow old and retired.

Eric Harry is pretty good your enjoy it and he wrote a second book as well, like the first one more. Your always going to find inaccuracies I found one in a Patrick Robinson book he was saying the 20mm cannon round from a Su-27 hitting the what ever thing was talking about. The only problem Su-27 is Russian they use 23mm or 30mm cannons in there jets not American 20mm. It's fiction and accept only liking or believing parts anyway such is life. I read about sixty to hundred of those fiction military novels anything with a jet, tanks, ship, on the cover I bought. Some aren't worth reading in the bathroom.

Stories are interesting only if the main character is in serious trouble and is not a perfect human being.
Jack Ryan became too big for his own good.

I agree Jack Ryan did get too big ruined it for me as well. I go many directions with story plots and characters as well but hate bad ending that don't close up lose ties.
