About the Author
A veteran of the 82nd Airborne, he brings first-hand knowledge of military operations to his fiction. His novels for Baen include those in the New York Times best-selling Posleen War series (A Hymn Before Battle, Gust Front, When the Devil Dances, and Hell’s Faire), the Council War series (There Will be Dragons, Emerald Sea, Against the Tide, and East of the Sun, West of the Moon), the nationally best-selling techno-thriller novels about Mike Harmon (Ghost, Kildar, Choosers of the Slain, Unto the Breach, and A Deeper Blue), the Looking-Glass series (Into the Looking Glass, Vorpal Blade, and Manxome Foe, the last two in collaboration with Travis S. Taylor), four collaborations with fellow New York Times bestselling author David Weber (March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars and We Few) and five collaborative spinoffs from the Posleen series: The Hero, written with Michael Z. Williamson, Watch on the Rhine and Yellow Eyes, both written with Tom Kratman, and the New York Times best seller Cally’s War and its recent sequel Sister Time, both with Julie Cochrane.
Bandit Six and his band of soldiers are trapped in Iran in 2019 when the world is plagued by a series of disasters. First, a pandemic flu kills up to 60% of the population and then a mini ice age brings snows to Saudi Arabia. Left behind to secure a military base, Bandit Six and his men fight their way back from Iran to Turkey and then to the U.S. Dan John Miller's delivery is perfect for this no-punches-pulled first-person narrative by Bandit Six, the Last Centurion. Laced with crude language and dark images of the future, Miller's reading is straightforward and army tough. With few characterizations and little emotion, the listener is swept into the action. Miller becomes Bandit Six, patriotic, no-nonsense, and extra rough around the edges. M.B.K.

Told in retrospect, it's a description of how society breaks down depending on moral and social values. How quickly it can break, how it can be shored up and rebuilt. IF the mouth breathers don't get in the way.
I wonder sometimes it Dingo (along with Kratman and others) have a crystal ball. I find it sad that we could be living in their stories soon if we aren't very careful.
I am a John Ringo fan, and I have really enjoyed this book. He raises a lot of interesting points to ponder, such as, Should "Old Folks" & small kids taking precedence on immunization shots,ahead of working adults, among others.
The book is written in a blog format with lots of historical filler.
Ringo is not afraid to go against the pop/academic culture and calls them out. Repeatedly. I love that! As always I am left wanting more at the end of the book. MORE RINGO!!!
