    The first of the acclaimed Vatta's War books, the exciting military science fiction series that features a swashbuckling spaceship-captain heroine who mixes commerce with combat.

    "Excellent author, inexperienced narrator"
    Overall

    Elizabeth Moon's writing is somewhere between "Zane Gray" and "Louis Amour", as she writes with a good imagation and includes details that make you think of the characters as real and you can imagine them doing all of the things as she describes it, with you right there. Her stories are very smooth as she transitions from each "scene" to the next.
    Cynthia Holloway is a very good reader with only one area needing improvement. Cynthia needs to expand her voice roles, in particular her male voices. As you listen and she changes characters you will sometimes get lost as to who said or did what, breaking the flow of the story.

    Story

    It is the fall of 1950. The Marines have made a pivotal breakthrough at Inchon, but a roller coaster awaits them. The bit in his teeth, Douglas MacArthur surges across the 38th parallel toward the Yalu River, only to encounter the Chinese in full force, who drive him back in turn.

    Overall

    I did not know that the book was abridged. WEB Griffin books need the extra verbage as he has many threads going in the background, which makes his stories ones that "you can't put down". Abridging his works ruins the story.
