Soldiers

Review:

Long and a bit bor­ing, over­fo­cused in re­li­gion. The au­thor seems to feel a need to make all char­ac­ters deeply re­li­gious and tol­er­an­t, and to pack as many dif­fer­ent re­li­gions (re­al or in­vent­ed) as he can.

Not smart enough to be in­ter­est­ing that way, the mil­i­tary ac­tion fiz­zles by cre­at­ing a ter­ri­bly in­ef­fec­tu­al fic­tion­al ad­ver­sary.

Review:

I can't be­lieve I am the first per­son read­ing this in all of goodread­s.­com :-)

I could not fin­ish it. The first sto­ry "Food will win this war" is ok, but the fol­low­ing two dig them­selves deep­er and deep­er in­to mil­i­tary slang, it's al­most as if their on­ly goal was to make you un­der­stand what an S-3 is.

Redliners

Review:

Viet­nam vet­er­ans should not be al­lowed to write books about sol­diers in a jun­gle set­ting. It's lazy.
