"The waiting was always the worse."
Henry Gallant was a Natural, born without genetic engineering. Which often made life doubly difficult, as he had to fight not only the alien Titans but also the prejudice of some of the other officers in the Fleet who believed that only the genetically enhanced humans were fit for command positions. But he had repeatedly proved his abilities, and, despite strong opposition, found supporters in high places and risen through the navy command

This book was the best ever, of the Gallant series! The action puts you on he planet with the Marines. It was very well written, on the edge of your seat reading. The end has a surprising twist, but the end is ok! Am just starting Commodore Gallant now. He feels like a brother in arms,and I will be very sorry to finish the series! This is a book that is very entertaining, yet very down to earth with married life!!10/10 I heartily recommend this book,and it is not a follow on, so this can b read ...more

Excellent reading!

The whole saga continues to enthral me - Henry Gallant fighting the enemy whilst being attacked at home by corrupt politicians and businessman and incompetent senior officers.

Tells a timeless story

Great plot and challenge for our hero. Tells a very accurate story about the band of brothers, the shipmates that are dedicated and serving now and hopefully into the future. The politics and chicanery are too true as well.

Good series. Glad it's back

After a lengthy pause our "Natural" Henry Gallant returns to defend earth. Th He time of this book is a little different from the others in that it is not just from Henrys perspective but includes other support characters more than in the past books. It also has less daily detail on Henry and more of a strategic view vs tactical minutia. I liked the book and am glad for Henrys return to our pages however I personally hate when political bad guys win or not lose. I hope

Henry Gallant

The only thing I don't like about the series is there's too long between books. It reminds me of Horacio Hornblower. The series show the character moving through the ranks, the good officer who hates politics and must deal such. A man who deals shelf , at same time making important decisions while showing creative and daring. I look forward to future books.

Waiting

I love these books. They are well written, they grab and hold your attention. I only have one complaint. The time lag between the books. I'm 79 and I hope to read the whole series.

Henry Gallant Needs Respect

This is another winner by Peter Alesso, his characters are friends or enemies , Henry fights honorably and get beat up by dirty, unscrupulous politicians and arrogant military superiors. When will be finally get the respect he richly deserves?

Good action and character development.

Unlike the last book in this series Alesso does a fine job of character development and keeps the plot fast paced. Very enjoyable and difficult to put down. Highly recommended.
