This is an insightful review of the issues that come to bear on a galactic conflict in terms of logistics and risk of forces. If you send a fleet on place, another remains uncovered and you have the classic 'wack-a-mole' problem. Good stuff.
I love that Jack captured the essence of a soldier's view of the world, and how that can go wrong when officers become politicians that treat them like numbers -- losing the battlesense that you can only get with real time on the ground -- not micro-managing from afar.
Stark himself is what soldiers aspire to be.
I love stories that separate from our daily experience to explore concepts relevant to our future in a context that allows for deep analysis. Ayn Rand was one of those rare souls that sees things as they are instead of as they wish them to be. I found her story to be compelling and educational.
Honor has value despite politics as most of her new adopted home support with their actions.
I greatly enjoyed all four books. My only regret is that it does not continue. It feels like there could be another 3 books or so to see where Rodger could go next in his development.
I have enjoyed this series tremendously. It is great to have an author take the time to make each character full and rich. They interact in surprising and pleasing ways -- eventually. : )
Vince did a great job with this one, and I liked how he created a situation where ill-schooled senators learned the errors of their ways in a way that is undeniable and apolitical. Many of our current leaders would benefit from this read, as they clearly do not understand national security.
I have truly enjoyed this work by Joel Rosenberg on several levels. First, he is a great story teller that maintains suspense and several threads going in parallel leading a a 'big event'. Second, I think his interpretation of Ezekiel has been an eye opener for me, and I find it has value. In this last book, Joel got a wee bit heavy on the preachy side, but it was consistent with the growth of the characters, and I enjoyed it.
