    I have been working my way through this book and I have mixed feelings about it.

    It is a good story, BUT there are quite a few issues:

    #1: The Editor should be taken outside and beaten. Hard. You see, exclamation points should! be!! used!!! a !!!! lot!!!! less!!!!!!!!


    Damn, let your story give the reader a sense of excitement, don't force it on them every few sentences with !'s.

    #2: The author claims military experience, but it doesn't really show. Some of the errors may be to add dramatic effect (seriously, use a 40mm anti-aircraft gun against a Soviet Cruiser and sinking it? Not happening, bud. Should have used the 8 to 14 inch railroad cannon instead. Also, talking about the 120mm on M-1's in 1980....in 1980, there were damn few M-1's, none in the National Guard, and they were 105's. 120's were not used until the M1A1. Some more research would have helped with these issues. Another spot that made me wonder was during a tank battle when the commander, after firing a Sabot round (APDS-T), called for Armor Piercing (AP) to be loaded. Bro-Heim, Sabot IS armor piercing...in 1980, the rounds available for a 105mm on an M-60 and/or an M-48A5 were Sabot, HEAT (High Explosive Anti-Tank), White Phosphorus, HEP (High explosive, plastic) and rarely the APERS-T (Anti-Personnel or "Beehive").
