OK, the author did not leave the accusation of illegality unsupported. The book seems fair, and thorough. I think I just don't like hearing anything negative about the Marines. I have not served, but have multiple relatives who have.

Not sure how I feel about this book. Interesting premise, but I feel like the author is trying too hard to remind us the Marines are not perfect, e.g. he mentions that the Marines lobbied congress in ways legal and illegal, but then doesn't say what was illegal or how he knows it was done. It's a fairly serious charge to leave dangling like that.

OK, told from the POV of someone who may or may not be schizophrenic. This is going to be an interesting ride...

Not what I was expecting. I picked it up since it was the next in the series and I thought it would be the continuing adventures of Rhennthyl, or somewhere down the road. I didn't realize this one jumped back chronologically.
