The book is great.....However the nook version is edited so badly it makes the read VERY difficult. At this piont between B&N's exclusion of nook products from sales and terrible editing/transfering of the books to nook, I may just toss my nook and either get a kindle or go back to paper books(also from amazon)

¿Steel Gauntlet¿ (ISBN 0-345-42526-X) is David Sherman and Dan Cragg¿s third book chronicling the history of the Confederation Marine Corps¿ 34th Fleet Initial Strike Team (FIST) L Company Third Platoon, among the most deployed units in the Corps. The 34th FIST¿s mission to Wanderjahr was a success and for thwarting an attempt on the lives of one of Wanderjahr¿s leaders and the 34th FIST¿s General, Joe Dean and Rackman Claypoole were promoted to Lance Corporal. Diamunde, a resource-rich planet, has for the fourth time in Confederation history become a trouble spot requiring the use of military force to restore order. This time the Confederation gathers together a force consisting of six of the thirty-six Marine FISTs, the 34th is one the first units to land, two Army Corps, and a large Fleet to end the ambitions of the man who has taken control of Diamunde by force. The major problem that face the Marines, Army, and Navy units is having to relearn how to deal with Main Battle Tanks and other armored fighting vehicles, which have not been seen on the battlefield for 300 years. Before leaving Thorsfinni World to Diamunde, the 34th FIST¿s commanding officer makes sure that all his troops have been promoted and received all awards due them, including Charlie Bass who is once again promoted to Gunnery Sergeant. This mission will test the skills and bravery of not just the men of L Company Third Platoon, but to all the troops involved on both sides of the conflict. David Sherman and Dan Cragg do a great job in describing the fears and bravery of the infantry having to go against tanks on the battlefield. Further, this book does a good job in blending fact and the probable future of the infantry and of tanks in modern warfare.
