My favorite story in Volume 2, is Allamagoosa by Eric Frank Russel. Anyone who has been in an environment, school, work, etc. will have a touch of deja vu. Superiority is another classic by Arthur C. Clarke, that has relevance to any one dealing with technology, be it in the home, at work, or in the Military. Cincinnatus is another favorite of mine, and the story is based on the Roman Leader of that name, updated to a future on another planet. Final Muster was a bit disturbing.
If you like Mil Sci Fi, buy it. It's a great collection of short stories that are a great value for the money. And if you old copy is falling apart from 30+ years ago, buy it. It's a no brainer.
The premise of the entire series, a mix of science fiction stories and essays about warfare in the past and future, is that man will always use violence to solve problems. No matter how you feel about that premise, it's hard to argue that it's wrong.
This volume has the usual mix of fiction and essays. I'm giving it four stars rather than the five I give the first volume only because some of the fiction isn't up to the standards of Volume I. On the other hand, the excerpt from T. R. Fehrenbach's "This Kind of War" is worth the price of the entire volume. Even if you've read the entire book, this excerpt is worth reading again and again.
