The first 100 plus pages of this book is a right wing rant on the health care debate and the alleged foibles of the political left. There is then a decent military campaign type novel in the middle and a rant at the end.

Ringo does excellent work when paired with another such as David Weber. He can do very good work on his own but this book, sadly, was not one of them.

I really enjoyed this book. Maybe I am a right wing red neck, but John Ringo makes so many points that are bang on that it really highlights how divorced from reality many outspoken left wing commentators are. The blog style narrative is fun once you get used to it. Anyway, I bought the book and liked it so much I bought the audiobook as well.

This is the best military fiction I've ever read. I do not know if others have attempted a retelling of the Anabasis, the greatest military adventure of all time, but I doubt it could be done better. Tremendous action and very well framed psychologically. Epic outcomes. Funny as hell in places. It is a soldier's fantasy perfectly realized. Some reviewers complain about the political diatribes. I don't; I agree with their sentiments entirely, but, aside from that, they serve the necessary narrative purpose of laying out a historical situation in which something as improbable as a modern-day Anabasis could occur. And they succeed perfectly. I can't recommend the book to liberals; they long ago lost any insight into or sympathy for the military mind, and a guy like Bandit 6, the hero of the tale, is beyond them. But I hope the rest of you won't miss this.

Compelling writing style however unclear if the right-wing jingoist adventurism is satirical or a depiction of the perspective from the battlefield, also to temper the mission-accomplished panache would have preferred more character development in Bandit 6 e.g. more self-reflection, less cynicism, some of the narrow-mindedness is presented in a quasi-educated logical style that comes over as justification which is a bit disturbing at times.
