The high point of the book, the final battle scene, was a direct steal from the movie Zulu. The author went so far as to describe most of the high points of the historic battle of Rourke's Drift. After all the work introducing characters and setting up the political intrigue, the author should have found a more interesting / obscure battle to play to the gruff NCO and her heroic squad of soldiers.
Not this genre, but definitely this author
A female reader was very appropriate for this book.
Excellent premise, good storyline, unfortunately the author decided to take the final scenes from a world class movie. If I were to continue to listen to this author, could I expect the next battle to scene to be taken from the movie the Alamo, or perhaps the battle of Thermopylae from the movie 300?
Excellant military action with all the political officers that everyone loves to hate. Book doesn't bog down with in depth information on the hero's past, but rather gives little glimpses between major and minor plot twists.
