About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That being said, it probably is the weakest installment in this series. Comparatively, to the other books, little character development and slow advancement of the story line.
The style of this book seemed to be fairly different than other books that really described how Tom would create, organize, build, train and fight and Army from the ground up. This one was somewhat similar to a mystery novel. I found myself trying to guess what Carrera was planning to do to win against such seemingly insurmountable odds.
Disappointed that this book ended where it did. Felt very abrupt, right in the middle of significant events, rather than a logical ending point for most of his previous works in the series.
Still sprinkled with old soldier humor, interesting vignetttes on rarely studied war legalities, and enough of the ‘Balboan’ brand of military efficiency to held my attention and feel like it fit in with the rest of the series.
The time I dedicated to reading this was well worth it. Its just hard to be super happy hitting a double when your last six at bats have been home runs and triples.
Read his last book sitting in a cot, waiting out a 2 day monsoon in the Phillipines until we could get back to working on helo assaults. I hope we don’t have to wait that long to put a cap on one of my all time favorite series.
It is a continuation of the novel series that we were left in the middle of a war several years ago. Yet the reader is just supposed to remember all the nuances of both sides of the war with no real introduction. Personally I think it is lazy of an author not to give detailed background in this kind of book.
In addition, his characters seem to lack the depth that I remember from his other works. Maybe it is that Mr. Kratman is trying to cover to much territory, I don't know. Tha action and descriptions of the weapons are good. But as a former Marine and engineer I am about 97% convinced that MOABs idea if pure BS.
I am totaly undecided if I will imvest my hard earned $$$ in the next installment.
Speaking of “series”, if you have not read the previous volumes in the series the is little chance you are going to know what the hell is going on! So read those first.
Re the “Noahs”: if they more info about who and what they are/were does not turn up eventually I will be annoyed. Otherwise they are just a silly way to justify a parallel universe.
