5.0 out of 5 starsSi Vis Pacem Para Bellum
“These guys know what they’re doing. This pair of seasoned authors have decided they just don’t give a damn anymore and they’re going to write what they want to write. And they’ve done it well. This book is obviously a well put together allegory of America in Afghanistan and Iraq. These Legionnaires are Rangers, Marines, or Striker Brigades, take your pick. There is an obvious and purposeful element of Star Wars in the mix as well. As they call it Star Wars not Star Wars. Differences like the fact that the Legionaires hit what they shoot at unlike their Storm Trooper counterparts just make this an improvement on the old model. I loved every word of it, and as a soldier in the past myself, some of it got to me emotionally. Simple things like loyalty to your fellow soldier on the line are hard to get right and these guys did it. After writing this I’m going to go sign up for their website and podcast. Semper Fi”
The Galaxy is a Dumpster Fire
A hot, stinking, dumpster fire. And most days I don’t know if the legionnaires are putting out the flames, or fanning them into an inferno.
A hostile force ambushes Victory Company during a reconnaissance-in-force deep inside enemy territory. Stranded behind enemy lines, a sergeant must lead a band of survivors against merciless insurgents on a deadly alien world somewhere along the galaxy’s edge. With no room for error, the Republic’s elite fighting force must struggle to survive under siege while waiting on a rescue that might never come.
