Publisher's Summary

The Marines were told it was a simple peasant rebellion - but the mission proved to be far deadlier....

Gunny Charlie Bass isn’t the only Marine mystified by the order sending the entire 34th to put down a few seditious serfs on planet Kingdom. Rumors swirl of a deadly alien invasion. But few believe that such sentient beings exist. Except Gunny Bass and the Marines of the 3rd platoon, who once fought enemy aliens called Skinks - fierce, fanatical fighters with hideous weapons who attack for no other reason but to kill.  

Then, while slogging through Kingdom’s fetid swamps, the Marines are attacked by awesome unseen weapons that could destroy half a platoon with one shot. Clearly they are facing no normal enemy. And if their adversaries are Skinks, one FIST isn’t enough. Third platoon’s orders are to penetrate deeper into the bloody jungle hell - and find out what happens when a few good men bite the bullet....

Semper Fi-ist: join the Confederation Marines for more Starfist adventures.

Critic Reviews

“CAUTION! Any book written by Dan Cragg and David Sherman is bound to be addictive, and this is the first in what promises to be a great adventure series. First to Fight is rousing, rugged, and just plain fun. The authors have a deep firsthand knowledge of warfare, an enthralling vision of the future, and the skill of veteran writers. Fans of military fiction, science fiction, and suspense will all get their money’s worth, and the novel is so well done it will appeal to general readers as well. It’s fast, realistic, moral, and a general hoot. First to Fight is also vivid, convincing–and hard to put down. Sherman and Cragg are a great team! I can’t wait for the next one!” (Ralph Peters, New York Times best-selling author of Red Army)

Abridged versions sucks

I've read most of the Fist series many years ago. The series is great but it would be even better without the butcher knife cutting out parts.
