The Amazon Legion: Carrera, Book 4

On the colony planet of Terra Nova, Carrera has achieved his revenge, destroying those who had destroyed his life by killing his wife and children in a terrorist strike. And, with this help of his second wife, he has thwarted an attempted coup that would have restored the rule of the oligarchy and undone his hard-won victory. But his fight is not over yet.... The problem of the Tauran Union's control of the Transitway between Terra Nova and Earth remains, as does the problem of the nuclear-armed United Earth Peace Fleet, orbiting above the planet.

Publisher's Summary

On the colony planet of Terra Nova, Carrera has achieved his revenge, destroying those who had destroyed his life by killing his wife and children in a terrorist strike. And, with this help of his second wife, he has thwarted an attempted coup that would have restored the rule of the oligarchy and undone his hard-won victory. But his fight is not over yet....

The problem of the Tauran Union's control of the Transitway between Terra Nova and Earth remains, as does the problem of the nuclear-armed United Earth Peace Fleet, orbiting above the planet. The Taurans will not leave, and the Balboans - a proud people, with much recent success in war - will not tolerate that they should remain.

And yet, with one hundred times the population and three or four hundred times the wealth, the Tauran Union outclasses little Balboa in almost every way, even without the support of Old Earth. Sadly, they have that support. Everything, everyone, will have to be used to finish the job of freeing the country and, if possible, the planet. The children must fight. The old must serve, too. And the women?

This is their story, the story of Balboa's Tercio Amazona, the Amazon Regiment.

    "Interesting approach and appraisal of the issues"

    As a discussion of the issues facing a military force including women and homosexuals, this is an interesting read. However, it is the second book, of three, that retraces the same plot territory. This strikes me as a "side book" rather than a main plotline book, but there's just not enough of the main story to support the side book. Directly following Lotus Eaters, I felt like it was indulgence on the part of the author to wrap his policy proposal in fiction. Since I'm, at least, willing to consider the ideas he puts forth, for me to be bugged by it is probably a bad sign.

    I didn't do much for the first twenty years of my life, spent the next twenty in the military, and the twenty after that in college. Then, I mostly retired.

    Story
    "Great Fun"
    If you could sum up The Amazon Legion in three words, what would they be?

    The narration is spotty, there is much repetition. Even so, it is an entertaining listen for an old warrior, few jarring errors in small unit tactics are apparent, and a little grisly reality doesn't hurt anything. Like Heinlein, the author makes a lot of political and social commentary along the way.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There are a number of worthy and well developed characters in the series, and they tend to survive from one book and part of the story to another.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    There is an aggravating tendency on the part of the narrator to whisper when he is stating the thoughts of the characters. The net result is that I have no more knowledge of what they were thinking than any non-mindreaders in the listening audience, and if I turn it up, the windows shake when the story continues.
