Format: Mass Market Paperback
Set in the future, but excellent descriptions of small unit tactics and leadership that stand the test of time - past, present, and future. Pay particular attention to the scenario where "doing nothing" (this is an action book!) is the correct choice. Also, this is one of the few fiction books that allows its characters to get tired and have clouded decisions.

A World War II shoot'em up set on a different world. Good pacing, and the impact of fatigue was well shown but the enemy were led by idiots and are just targets. And friendly tactics were almost as dumb. Minimal science. Basicly rifles and grenades. No heavy weapons, no artillery, not even mortars. Come on, why call it science fiction if we're going to use tactics and weapons from the Battle of Stalingrad.

This is the second book in this series. Shelley is adept at military scifi. The characters are well developed and the story well done.
I would however recommend reading them in order as "Cadet" offers a building of or progression of the characters.

Not an epic classic, but good solid writing. Enough twists to keep it interesting, and good action sequences from front to back.
