I am a reluctant David Drake fan. Yes, "War is Hell" but getting hit over the head with the ugliness, cruelty, violence. barbarism and often pointlessness of war can become wearing. We get it. That being said David is a master storyteller who always manages to grab you by the throat and drag you into the story for a dramatic ride that you cannot fail to appreciate. Buy the time you finish this series you will come to understand what goes through the mind of a soldier when he "sees the elephant". - Ron Restorff
