Product Description

About the Author

The Army took David Drake from Duke Law School and sent him on a motorized tour of Viet Nam and Cambodia with the 11th Cav, the Blackhorse. He learned new skills, saw interesting sights, and met exotic people who hadn't run fast enough to get away. Dave returned to become Chapel Hill's Assistant Town Attorney and to try to put his life back together through fiction making sense of his Army experiences. Dave describes war from where he saw it: the loader's hatch of a tank in Cambodia. His military experience, combined with his formal education in history and Latin, has made him one of the foremost writers of realistic action SF and fantasy. His books include the genre-defining and bestselling Hammer's Slammers series, the RCN series including "What Distant Deeps, In the Stormy Red Sky, The Way to Glory, "and many more. His bestselling Hammer's Slammers series is credited with creating the genre of modern Military SF. He often wishes he had a less interesting background. Dave lives with his family in rural North Carolina. S.M. Stirling is a writer by trade, born in France but Canadian by origin and American by naturalization, and living in New Mexico at present. His hobbies are mostly related to the craft, with a love of history, anthropology and archaeology, and an interest in the sciences. His books include "Drakas!" and "The Reformer."

HASH(0x9a7b24b0) out of 5 stars Bought this in paperback many years ago and just had to read it again. 16 May 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I read the entire series many years ago, I waited for sequels. When only one or two more were written, I was disappointed. After buying a Kindle Fire, I just wanted the entire collection and have enjoyed it all over again.

This is a brilliant must have classic for every fan of military SF, SM Stirling and David Drake. I bought the original books years ago and have reread them many time since. Get the whole series if you can.

HASH(0x9b087390) out of 5 stars reprinting of books 3 and 4 in the thrilling General science fiction saga 4 Mar. 2014
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Hope Rearmed
David Drake and S.M. Stirling
Baen, Mar 4 2014, $14.00
ISBN: 9781476736303

"The Anvil." Civil Government Governor Barholm Clerett fears popular General Raj "Savior of the State" Whitehall will overthrow him in a coup. At a council meeting to discuss invading the Brigade lost territories, Chancellor Robert Tsetzas wants to delay military action due to costs accrued by the previous action. Thus when Raj asks for forty thousand troops, he receives eighteen thousand. Accompanied by his wife Suzette who runs the civilian side of the invasion, Raj leads his troops to Stern Isle where he expects little resistance until the assault on Wager Bay, a powerful impenetrable fort.

"The Steel." Whitehall's troops take back Crown Peninsula and Lion City, but he knows they face overwhelming odds as the Brigade army outnumbers his forces by 5 to 1. Still they march forward destroying Brigade defenses and freeing towns on the road to Old Residence. The Brigade forces led by Ingreid Manfrond, with Howyrd Carstens providing the brains behind the counter operation, also head towards Old Residence. As the battle begins, a betrayal leaves Whitehall and his army in peril.

Hope Rearmed is an exciting reprinting of books 3 and 4 in the thrilling General science fiction saga (see Hope Reborn for the opening tales The Forge and The Hammer). The terrific blending of nineteenth and twentieth century technology within a feral Holy Roman Empire feudal society on a divided world makes for a strong background. However, it is the grim dark realism of war (in spite of comic book heroics by Raj) and the worship of the silent Computer who abandoned the people but left behind the bible (manuals) that make for a fabulous read.

HASH(0x9a7b2abc) out of 5 stars fabulous 25 April 2014
By Fubar4Fun - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Love this whole series. Can't get over how much it seems like a video game from the perspective of the AI but... Fabulously written, no obviousness in the events and the characters are all very well crafted. Great read
