That is about all I got to know, understand through out the entire book and its conclusion. The Military actions, battles, credible TO -- Equp -- Weapons and the tactics, strategy used as the MEF battled the Terran Guard was good and kept me reading.
Never found out how, when MEF was deployed nor why there was no space navy around to support them. Never really get to know who, where people of Terran Guard came from nor ever learn how, where they got their weapons, equipment and supplies.
When I reached the end, becoming more difficult as I slogged thru page after page, I didn't get an answer to the burning question in my mind -- what the heck was this story about. The Marines died 'well', with honor, sacrifice as they were literally exterminated eventually for something, one(?) that most did not know about what. They did their duty.
Probably a 1 star, the mil part was done well but the point of it all, hidden in mystery around some natives is never explained. Or it was so heavy, it went over my head. Character development was poor and I didn't really care who lived or died. Author, to me, never made his point and made it worse because there was no purpose from start to end. The 300 -- we've done our duty?
Was this all about a few lines of thought from native priest who wanted the humans dead? If that was point, poorly done as well as not giving enough info about all involved.
