Throughly enjoyed reading this book, but then I am a big fan of Peter F. Hamilton. Maybe not quite on a par with his best but still excellent. Now the wait for the next book, hopefully not too long a wait!
This film should be seen as an ok action film but not what I would consider a, Star Trek film. The violence is excessive and I'm not sure of the interaction between some of the characters especially between Kirk and Scott.
The Korean War seems to have suffered from a lack of interest when compared to the war in Vietnam although as Max Hastings notes in this book, many of the mistakes the US made in Korea were later to be made again in Vietnam. Max Hastings in this book mixes personal accounts with a general description of the political and military history of the conflict.
