Come and Take Them (Carerra Series Book 5) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
On the colony planet of Terra Nova, soldier turned political leader Carrera has achieved his revenge, destroying those who killed his wife and children in a terrorist strike, and helping to establish a free country. But Carrera’s fight is not over.
War with the Tauran Union is inevitable. Carrera has been preparing his new country for this all-out conflict for years, intending to drive out the last vestige of foreign imperialism in Balboa, the Tauran Union Security Force. He doesn't care that he's outnumbered one hundred to one. He doesn't care that the Taurans are one thousand times wealthier. A true Machiavellian, Carrera is convinced that gold cannot always find good soldiers, but that good soldiers can always find gold. After all, his good soldiers have already found quite a bit. Moreover, he's been preparing for the war he intends to start and fight on his own terms, while the TU has been preparing for a progressive fantasy.
But then his own government calls a halt even as the commander of the United Earth Peace Fleet, High Admiral Marguerite Wallenstein, injects a dose of realism and spine into the Tauran Union. Any other government, giving similar orders, Carrera would overthrow without hesitation. But this is his own creation; he must follow these orders.
But the Taurans are provoking Balboa mercilessly, and Carrera knows that sooner or later, he must fight—only now the task will be more difficult and more bloody. No matter. When that time comes, Carerra knows he will do whatever it takes to win. He is, after all, Carrera.

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I have no idea what they are complaining about.
The assault itself was never described, just what investigators found after it was over. This isn't a Ringo novel, after all.
The descriptions of violence done to people in warfare are more graphic.
Why is the violation of men and women's bodies by shards of shell casings, bullets, hot gases and emulsifying concussions more acceptable? This is a series about war, and the author describes it very well and accurately. Warfare is horrible and continuous, on a level that most people will be fortunate enough to never experience, and the things that the author describes in his books are happening in conflicts as you read this.
All that the author is doing is introducing you to it. Enjoy your visit, and when you are done, close the book and return to your life.
Go visit his homepage for a couple of really good laughs.

Shame because I was really enjoying the writers work despite his constant right wing rants
