This is probably the most frustrating and stupid hero you've ever read, trying to go off and "save the world" This guy does everything he's not supposed to at every turn, and makes every mistake that even a simpletons common sense would tell him not to.

An excellent listen...

My first impression was to skip this particular series. I am not really a big fan of "military sci-fi" and prefer a good old fashioned space opera instead - where the scene changes from place to place and various characters. I was also put off by the book titles, which seem to have very little imagination put into them. I am glad I found it now, as the story and writing are excellent. I am looking forward to the next book.

Germany bad, everyone else good.

Quite astounding given the foreword that this book was touted as a fairly neutral affair that merely looked into the situation and made the reader pity the people caught up in it. From Chapter one the Author (a Jewess) complains incessantly about Germany being warlike and all their Generals and leadership being one step away from an insane asylum. She was then paraded around the United States and given awards, accolades and university degrees. I'd like to read a different point of view to the mainstream war propaganda of - not even the time - but 1962. A hindsight re-writing of events and people as seen through her (completely neutral I'm sure) eyes.

Usually a space opera is a set of viewpoints across a range of people in different places whose paths cross... The best part of this book is the cover art. This was poorly written derivative work, a true wet dog of a book, narrated by someone who cuts off the end of every sentence as if he'd just explained why your dog died on his property and how it was all your fault.

If you liked the first one you'll love this - because that's what Tom likes, books like this.
