Sorry to see the series end

I am a fan of military Sci-Fi. I read the other two books in the series (you must read this series in order) and knew this was the last book. I was wondering how Campbell was going to end it, I was thinking up all types of scenarios. The politics was interesting sort of reminds you of what is going on today in Washington. The space and land battles descriptions were fantastic. Campbell is a master of space battles. I will not give away the end but Campbell did an excellent job of tying up all the ends and coming up with a reasonable ending. I have read all the Jag in Space series and the Lost Fleet which I am keeping current on as Campbell writes them. I hope Audible has books under his real name of John Henry as I want to keep reading his books. Eric M. Summerer did a great job with the narration.

A fine conclusion

If you've read the previous 2 books then this is a must-read. It has good periods of military action balanced by periods of strategic planning, and enough action to keep things interesting throughout. With the last half of the book working to the inevitable climax, the book ends with a very satisfying conclusion.

Look out, this story is an omen

Just finished Stark series. Jack did a great job of keeping it going. Now I'm looking forward to his JAG series. I think we should encourage the Military and Politicos to read this series. I hate to say it, but it almost looks like Jack has a crystal Ball.

Great :)

Jack Campbell/John G Hemry is an awesome author. The Stark's War series is great. This is the 3rd series by him that I have read/listened to. I have loved them all. This story is set in the future & follows a mindset that has went to the extreme & created a world of separatism that no one can be happy in except for the greedy & ruthless. The main character Sergeant Ethan Stark is a man of principle, honor & duty. He's practically perfect in every way, although he cant see it himself, others around him strive to never let him down. Reading about the character of others has helped me to look into my own self & has inspired me to be a better person. There's lots action & people who have the courage to do what's right regardless of the personal consequences. Love the author. Love the series. Cant wait to listen to it again.

What an awesome conclution

Would you listen to Stark's Crusade again? Why?

The series started off being a bit difficult to listen too but it ended by being a publication I could not stop listening too. A story well worth listening too.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Stark's Crusade?

It is difficult to say more than the best was left till last. The best monent or event happens in the final 5 minutest of the recording when the story winds down ...

Upholding the Ameican Constitution

A fresh point of view. Great read for those of us that have dealt with Toxic leadership.

Excellent, but short.

This is the third and final installment in the Stark’s War trilogy...I think. Those of you who have seen my previous reviews of Stark’s War and Stark’s Command may get that the surviving mutinous NCOs of 1st Division hold the Lunar Colony. They have continued to repel raids attacks from other countries and US led shenanigans to protect the colony and to keep from being a television spectator sport.
They have been infiltrated, had turn coats leave doors open and had their remaining Earthbound family members used as hostages yet they’ve held the line. Now it appears the pentagon will try autonomous robotic warriors to bring about an end to this struggle. Anyone who has followed the Terminator series or Phillip K. Dick’s The Other Variety (turned into the movie Screamers) which featured a host of killing machines termed Autonomous Swords can sense where this story is taking us so I do not want to spoil it for you.
This is an excellent Military Science Fiction trilogy and was well delivered by both the author and the narrator. Considering my taste on audio books I almost took a pass on this one because of the short length of the installments. My opinion, yes it is personal, is that all three volumes should have been marketed as one thirty plus hour unit. I will still give this a five out of five. Great job guys!

Bravo Zulu (BZ means "Well Done" or "Great Job".)

This is great. Wish there was a three movie deal on this series! When will we see it happen? BZ!
