Publisher's Summary

Stranded in a hellish alien desert, stripped of their strategic systems, quick reaction force and supporting arms, and carrying only a day's water ration, Marine Staff Sergeant Charlie Bass and his seven-man team faced a grim future 75 light-years from home. The only thing between his Marines and safety was 85 miles of uncharted, waterless terrain and 2,000 bloodthirsty savages with state-of-the-art weapons in their hands and murder on their minds.

But the enemy didn't reckon on the warrior cunning of Marines' Marine Charlie Bass and the courage of a few good men who would follow him anywhere - even to death...

    "Good but very 'abridged'"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It's been cut down to more of a short story than a book. Action is good and fast-paced, story is good but the characters lack depth.

    A simple man trying to make his way through a complicated world. I did not make the rules I just try to live by them.

    "Charlie Bass Rules"

    A great story and a great set of central characters. If you are looking for the great american novel, then look elsewhere. If you are looking for a good tale, that keeps the action moving then get this audio book . I liked it so much I went out and bought the paperback. I am going to buy the second book soon. I encourge you to do the same. Charlie Bass rules!

    "Shame its abridged"

    The narration is good and i loved this series in print, but its always a shock trying an abridged version of a much loved book. Its just a shame they cut out so much.
