‘Different Infantry Space Battles’
OK, this is another science fiction infantry story. I’ve written before that I don’t think battles with aliens will involve infantry, but this story at least has a credible reason for there being infantry at all.
It’s a bit grittier than Alanson’s infantry books too. This, the first in a series, covers a lot of boot camp as well as battles, and it talks about soldiering in a voice that seems wearily experienced.
It’s nicely written and very readable. I still don’t think alien battles will involve much infantry, but I enjoy Star Wars and I don’t believe in the Force so I guess I’m flexible.
