This book is a compilation of 10 short novels by Coonts, Dale Brown, Larry Bond, James Cobb, Harold Coyle, R.J. Pineiro, David Hagberg, Dean Ing, Barrett Tillman, and Ralph Peters. All having to do with military matters. I liked most of them and will read more books by most of the authors.

Collection of many combat stories, various authors and styles. Marking as finished. Relisting as separate novels for Goodreads.

A series of short stories or novellas by various authors. Becoming a litte dated in the technology. Still a good read . I like the list of similiar stories and authors at the end of each chapter.

My second time to read this collection. Still quite satisfying.
MOst of the stories in this book were good, a few were just bad! I applaud Stephen Coonts for his effort, however it would have been more interesting to me if the stories were some how related vs just a hodgepodge of stories. Just my humble opinion.
