    2. This series never seems to last long as you are reading along, oblivious to time passing, and then you are done.Well drawn out and compelling characters plus a story arc that grabs your attention are the hallmarks of all the books in the Legion of the Damned series by William C Dietz.As a military science fiction genre there is always the chaffing between the political masters and the military whose honor requires them to obey sometimes obtuse objectives within unrealistic deadlines.And then the [...]

    6. A very enjoyable read I have always liked Dietz s books of the Legion of the Damned I did feel some of the characters got a short thrift and died far too conveniently such as SGT Gomez and the cyborg Snyder Perhaps the publisher was attempting to keep page count to an arbitrary number Despite my grumblings of the character s death, I enjoyed the book I am looking forward to reading the Legion of the Damned.

    7. A slow start but soon spins out of control in a good way Captain Santana and General Booly battle corrupt Confederacy politicians and the Ramanthian Empire to liberate diplomats and military personnel from a prison planet.

    8. One of the weaker books in the Legion of the Damned series Based very loosely off of the bataan death march and the later rescue of the troops.
