    I'm going all the way.

    William R. Forstchen¿s most powerful book since Rally Cry! Pages 120 - 123 sells this story, it is presented to the reader with such strong emotions. The tears well up inside, pain and heartache cover you and you can feel that this final parting of friends. As Colonel Andrew Lawrence Keane whispers 'We few, we happy few, we band of brothers...' I could see the whole scene in my mind's eye, as all of them came together for that last moment. Some smiling, some deep in thought and some knowing full well that this was the last mission for them and others standing with them. One of the most touching and powerful moments of any of his books. I also liked the exchange between Jurak and Zartak; Polaris93 will love that, as he has done so well in his past books, Mr. Forstchen again shows the other side of the coin. The dark side of the mirror. As Zartak remembers his 'pet' as he knew her as one would know his mother, or even more so. As Jurak looks on him as he repeats her prayer and a moment later after he stops crying he says, 'I knew then that they had souls.' Jurak watching and listening to him, trying to understand, and then being told - what if the shoe was on the other foot? What if is were they who hunted and ate us, alive. Oh the shock and 'Primal dread of being consumed, eaten alive...' Jurak felt, that what if factor Mr. Forstchen had Zartak propose to him. How would you feel if? I could see Jurak sitting there in the dark wide eyed with horror with the very thought of being the one with his head opened up and cattle enjoying the taste of his brain. The book takes the reader deep into the emotions of the characters, far deeper than any of the other of the series. Fatigued, desperate, and knowing full well they are all doomed. The human¿s plan a suicide mission, to strike against a foe that has them outnumbered, out gunned, and now out maneuvered them. Whispering a simple but meaningful oath, 'I¿m going all the way.' The attack takes them and the reader to the edge of their strength, their desire to live and even at times their own sanity. Hans desends upon the Horde as an avenging angel to free the Chin slaves and in doing so unleashes a tide wave of revenge and destruction that repulses even his battle hardened soul. The dark horror filled world the Horde enslaved mankind in turns back upon them rises up, and then crashes down upon them. The Horde screams in disbelief and their own horror as they are torn limb from limb by the Chin mob! But, in the end another part of the story takes hold, not a story of war, of death and destruction, but a story of men. The strong and the weak, men of honor, men of pride, men living and dead, the men of war. Men like you and I. The ordinary men who march off to war to fight for the high ideals of freedom, men like your father, brother, uncle, grandfathers, and even your sons. For in the end these are the men who stand up for and fight for our freedom. This series is for all of those men, from 1776 to the present, the ones who came home, and the ones, who like Sergeant Major Hans Schuder died for what they believed in most, their country and all that it stands for.
