For the Confederation's invasion army to seize the planet, the Marine FISTs first have to secure a planethead against St. Cyr's much larger forces which are equipped with superior weapons.

I enjoyed the first two installments of the Starfist series. They were not my very favorites but they did keep my attention. I guess that's why I'm a bit disappointed with this installment. It seemed a "situation normal" type of read. It was a fair story and kept my attention but did not do so to the degree that the earlier two did. Since there are many more left to go in the series, there is still hope.

In this story, the 34th FIST is deployed as part of a larger force in a full scale war against a planet led by a maniacal sadist who has reinvented the doctrine of armored warfare. These jarheads are going to fight tanks, something they have not trained to do in several centuries. The marines are to make an opposed landing, establish a "planethead" and hold for relief by the army. The overall commander is a political admiral who has a talent for making bad choices. A major bad choice is the site of the landing. Things just get worse when the army fails to reinforce the marines on schedule. That's bad enough but, when corrupt politicians get their oars in the water, things really go to hell. As I said to begin with, Situation Normal, All Fouled Up or SNAFU.

I still plan on reading the rest of the series but it is not as high on my priority list as it was.

This was quite an adventurous story with a lot of action. I really did enjoy it except for the mistreatment of some animals. I won't bore you with a plot summary as I know other reviewers are fond of doing that. The characters just keep getting better, to me. I do hope one of the main characters gets what he really wants one day. If you liked the previous books in the series, or this genre, I think you should give this one a shot. I don't think you'll be disappointed. I am glad this book has chapter demarcations because that makes knowing how close you are to the next chapter and deciding when to stop reading, if you have to for a while, easier. Have at it!

While the story is more of what you came for, the terrible editing kept pulling me out of the story. Whether it was trying to guess what word should have been there or 'is that an 11 where ll should be?'
This has been a good series to fall back on, sigh

The StarFist series is what got me hooked on military Science Fiction. I don't know if this was the first in the genre but its tropes seem to be copied every where. Some of the stuff is cringe worthy but overall the whole series is an enjoyable read.

Purchased all the series.....read them while still employed. I decided since retirement, to add them to my small, but worthy library....all their works these two authors co-wrote. Too bad they are no longer writing. I read that their publisher blew these guys off.....really dumb mistake!

I have read to two prior books and found them entertaining and enjoyable. I was afraid the story line might get weak as the series progressed, but generally it has not. i like that the characters continue while the story develops uniquely in each book. It appears the author has a strong distaste for some junior officers though as this book revisits a past officer failure and has a new one in it. It is not great fiction, but surely is a good, enjoyable read. The price seems a little high for an ebook, but it hasn't stopped me so far.

No proof reading. Typos everywhere. Seems like it was rushed to publication. Everything seems too antiquated for the time period depicted. I hope for improvement in future books.
I really enjoy these books when they have the jargon of day to day interplay. So many people have no idea what to say and how to say it. It is nice when the people writing the Story know what the difference between ranks are. Like what is the difference between a full bird Colonel and a light colonel or LtCol. Roger Roger.
