About the Author
Tom Kratzman was born in Boston and enlist at 17 years old in the US Army. He served with the 101st Airborne division and in Panama with the 193rd Infantry Brigade. He then went on to Boson College on an Army scholarship. Following his graduation, Kratzman was commissioned as an officer in 1980 whereupon he spent three more years in Panama followed by a four-year stint with the 24th Infantry Division. He was then part of the United States Army Recruiting Command, before serving with the 5th Special Forces Group during the Gulf War.
Kratzman left the regular army in 1992, and went to law school. He earned his juris doctorate in 1995, but remained a member of the United States Army Reserve and also worked for MPRI. He was recalled to the Army in 2003 for the Iraq War but was found to have a heart problem. He then spent time at the U.S. Army War College as Director, Rule of Law, for the Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute. Kratzman retired in 2006 as a Lieutenant Colonel and became a full-time author.

At this time, I'm mostly wondering when Tom Kratman is going to get back to the Carrera series. No problem if he still needs to storyboard it, the logic, math, and thinking are what carry this series (not that the characterizations are bad--they're actually very good); I suspect most of the storyboarding is long done and either got wiped out somehow or Mr. Kratman is working on voicing his newer characters into their roles.
But the battle scenes are vivid and exciting, the personal interplay is well written and engaging, the characters are well developed and interesting...overall a very good read.
I lose track in all the detail about certain things especially discussion about Balboan military units or groups for example. I have no idea of their actual sizes based on the descriptive words used...so I have to fight a tendency to let my eyes track to the right and down when those details appear and I can't really process them.
In this particular book, I kept waiting for the Prologue scene to be played out. What was up with that?
I can only assume it was implied toward the end?
Enjoyable book with, for me, minor issues.

Da non perdere (come, sinceramente, molti dei libri di Kratman).
