    Simply some of the best military fiction I've ever read I first read the stories as a teenager and later re read them in this collection as an adultA lot of military fiction comes across with the attitude that only soldiers know how to get things done and that if the civilians would just get out of the way and let them do their jobs then everything would be a lot betterI used to read that attitude into the Slammers but it's not really there What's there is the attitude that good soldiers know how to do their job and their job is to kill and destroy What's also there although mostly implied rather than stated is that unless you specifically want people killed and things destroyed then maybe you should come up with a way of doing things that doesn't involve soldiers In other words war is a last resort and will either not get you what you wanted or get it with conseuences that aren't acceptable to you

    Perfect ending to a set of gripping Slammers talesBest of the collection so far Vol 1 was somewhat fragmented but a solid intro to the tech and worlds of the Slammer's universe Vol 2 was flowing and attention grabbing Vol 3 is gripping and poetic and as graphic an echo of war as you are likely to find Great stuff

    Sorry it is overVol III of the Slammers did not disappoint except in that it was the last one Drake has been the master of military SF for a long time and this last volume only helped seal that title


  4. Freyja Freyja says:

    This book has previously published stories including an expanded version of Paying the Piper which was a short story expanded to novella length Of course this book is eminently readable and a bit hard to put down It just might not be to everyone's taste being very hard military SF It also includes a bit of an obituary of Jim Baen by David Drake Drake tells war like it is Read him

    Joachim Von Steuben livesEntertained again Never in doubt when I buy a David Drake book and I always want to read them again


  6. Terry Mahoney Terry Mahoney says:

    Simply the bestI have read Hammer's Slammers several times now and each time I cannot put the book in this case electronic book down A great read

    As a child of the 90s when military scifi hit an all time low I'm unable to explain the appeal of this series or the genre to me I never served in the military I never was caught in a combat zone I don't fantasize about the heroic things I could do as a soldierBut part of the appeal of Drake is that he doesn't fantasize it either As an ard vet he knows the details that help the stories ring true and he isn't writing stories about how glorious war is He's writing about what a crapfest it is and what happens to humans caught in it He's writing about the human conditionHe's also writing some damn fine fiction And usually explaining his inspiration he was a history and latin major in college which has caused me to go reading some history I may not have actually known about otherwise Or he's lifting the plot and admitting it openly from Hammett causing me to start checking out those stories And making me think about how to put my own spin on stories


  8. Steven Pfeffer Steven Pfeffer says:

    Good pacing a little shallow when it comes to character tropes


  9. J. J. says:

    An amazingly good read with some of the best military characterization action and themes I've found


  10. Jeffrey Martindale Jeffrey Martindale says:

    I wish Drake would write about the Slammers experiences
