Great collection of short stories

by David on 12/27/2006

Great collection of short stories about war in the far future. The stories portray where technology and warfare may go in the future. Yet he does not leave out the human tragedy and insanity of warfare. Even though the different stories in the book are about different people and different events in Weber’s fictional future, they seem to flow together as if it were a novel. All the stories and all their bitter sweet tragedy seem to come together in the final story where they all find a conclusion and a happy ending. Of course the happy ending is the best part. Worth reading for adults and high schoolers. There is some swearing in the book. Some parts are violent, but not overboard. I do not recall any sex in this book.
