I dont usually write reviews on books, preferring to leave that to people who are much smarter than I am but I feel compelled to say something about this book and the two that preceded it. I bought Volume 1 as I have always liked this genre of fiction and was looking for someone new, having read everything by Clancy, Brown, Weber, Coonts, Bond et al - my expectations weren't high as anyone who reads will know the authors I've just mentioned are all best sellers and, well, I had never heard of Andy Farman - but, I read the reviews for Book 1 (Stand To) and thought I'd give it a try. All I can say is - WOW!! Talk about hooked - from the first page to the last I felt almost breathless - I simply could not put it down. It takes me weeks and weeks to read a book as I nearly always fall asleep within just a couple of pages but I read Stand To in a weekend followed immediately by Volume 2 (Advance to Contact) and by Friday of that week I was on to Volume 3 (Fight Through) - I wish I had been slower in completing all three novels as I now have to wait for Volume 4 - which, though I have been assured is almost ready, can't come quick enough. If you're looking for a darn good read - try this guy for size.
