Format: Kindle Edition
David Drake's "Redliner" is a classic high-action military science fiction novel. There is plenty of struggle and strife as a company of elite troops is charged with guarding a group of civilians on a planet that is itself the enemy. Soon, both the soldiers and civilian immigrants have all they can do just to survive.
As with all Mr. Drake's books, the action scenes are intelligent, well-crafted, and very imaginative. What makes "Redliners" a cut above your typical action thriller is how well the author brings depth and insight to the story as the soldiers and civilians share their struggle for survival. In doing so, they are able to learn about each other's pain and character. The book actually has some really poignant, thoughtful scenes for the reader to ponder amid all the excellent action.
So, want action? This is the book for you. Also want some well-written character and plot development? "Redliners" has what you need. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Have a good read.

This is one of Daviid Drake's few non-"Hammer's Slammers" post-Vietnam War Sci Fi novels. It follows a unit of troops from combat to an attempt at taming a savage planet -- the plan for which actually detailed trying to see if the troops (all of whom were well past their breaking point, and hence "redlined" as militarily useless) could reintegrate into a human civilian society. Unlike Drakes "Slammers" this book is short on the details of weaponry and equipment, but long on descriptions of combat and the effects long-term combat have on soldiers. If you're looking for a "techno-novel" only, this book isn't for you. But, if you want a compelling storyline and believeable characters, BUY THIS BOOK!
