Remember his name, Carl, because you will never see it again. He is Sten! The warrior about whoom legends are told accross the Galaxy. Cole and Bunch know their military tactics. Special operations is their motto! It was refreshing to read a series of books which describes SpecOps the way it could happen, or should be done, not the HolyWeird version. The authors also know their history and make various references which I on a rare occasion had to look up. It is refreshing to read a book that doesn't play down to the LCD. And The EE can really cook. I've even tried the recepies personaly :-) One small complaint is their use of Galaxy, Universe, stelar distances and time spans seems inconsisten at times, and I couldn't build even a simulated map of the Empire.
