5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sun Tzu's Ghost!!!, 27 Jan 2010
This review is from: Stark's War (Sgt. Stark Novels) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is a great way to introduce yourself to military scifi if you haven't tried it and, if you already like it, this is a classic example of why it is so popular. Hemry now writes as Jack Campbell, author of "The Lost Fleet" series (another wonderful miliscifi series), but the "Stark's War" trilogy seems to be where he earned his spurs. Sergeant Ethan Stark is a fully realised character, with an inner demon driving his self-deprecation and devotion to his troops. Set on earth's Moon, it is a tale of bloody battle, what makes a hero and why, in the end, most fighting is futile. It neither lionises soldiers nor advocates pacifism. It is gritty, tragic and deadly realistic. It needs reprinting, because to get hold of a copy of any of the trilogy is likely to set you back 10-20 each!
