This book is very good. It does talk more about why he may do an op with other countries and tells the reader why the US does joint training with other developing countries. It does make sense. Yes, we do want to fight terrorism by training groups in developing countries to do it themselves; but we also do so to see how we can wage war against them if needed be. Even so, the book was real good and showed that 'the enemy of your enemy sometimes isn't your friend' to know what I'm talking about you'll have to read the book to understand.

If you're a Rogue Warrior fan, then you certainly know why you've come to another party with Marcinko and friends. Though I had only read only 1 other RW novel ( Red Cell )which I felt was fun but somewhat poorly written, I wanted to come back to the series to see if the writing had improved. Happily, it had in my opinion. Not Shakespeare, but if you are looking for a literary masterpiece, Rogue Warrior aint gonna be it! As usual, the action is fast-paced and hard- core, with a collection of quotes, stories, asides and observations which create a little tongue-in-cheek style for the book, which I liked. I must say, however, that in the interest of something I don't understand, ( Optimum length? Economy? Getting to work on another money-making novel fast?)this book did itself an injustice, as the entire key climactic mission was too short and underwritten. I would have liked another 50 pages to really develop the action and/or include more. I guess you could say that Echo Platoon is too little of a good thing or afraid to become a better book than it ended up being.

Marcinko goes on another mission only to tell you again that he lifts 450 lbs. on his weight bench at rogue manor everyday rain or shine and that this is how it is done in real life not how it is done in the movies. Given all that, the action is still there and I found myself not wanting to put the book down, but wanting to find out who he kills next. I wish they would make a movie about his adventures!!!
