Decent story. Well told in 148 pages. Did not quite believe the cigarette, cigar, and pipe smoking would be allowed on a space ship, with recycled air, for weeks at a time. That is the only negative comment about the book.

Things the author had no clue about: Vikings, history, space & planetary resources, Hitler, human nature, trade, shipping.... So was the space combat at least exciting? No. Is the book worth $2:99 on your Nook? No.
