This is the sequel to Stark's War and the second part of the trilogy. The story picks up right where it left off at the end of the first book, with Stark being elected to lead the military contingent on the Moon after it has mutinied and locked up all its officers. The story deals with Stark coming to terms with his new role and responsibilities, and also the need to overcome the distrust and divisions between the Moon's civilian and military colonists. Of course there is also an attempt by the American government to retake control of the colony, but overall this is probably less action-oriented than the first book and more heavily focused on Stark's character and the choices and issues he is faced with. The series continues to engage and entertain without really being exceptional in any way.

Very poorly written

Sgt. Stark is written from the Enlisted/NCO viewpoint, and all too often strikes home against the Officer Corps and the Careerists there who care nothing for the men, just their next 'ticket' being punched. If you are a West Pointer, you will hate this series, but if you are not, you will love it.

I've read a lot of the Hemry/Campbell books including all three of the Stark's War series and have found them all to be good reads. With his U.S. Navy background his action sequences are well constructed and delivered. He has a grasp of tactics and battles that rings true and he understands and adheres to reality of physics in his presentation of time lag, ballistics, and the many other things that some science fiction writers gloss over. His plot and character development is a little lacking but not to the point of making the stories unreadable. While not on the scale of an Asimov, Clarke, Heinlein, etc. his books are entertaining and well worth the cost and effort to read them.
