This is a well written narrative by an amazing man. The author\'s experiences are amazing and were recognized by the US and Allied leaders.
I recommend this title to any student of the First World War and of US military history.
A nice tight little story by one of the greats. Only a little dated (nega instead of anti). Interesting that Piper correctly listed the major players (US, Russia, China, India, Japan, and the muslim states) fifty years ago.
it was a great book NOT REALLY
I enjoyed this book. The science behind the sci-fi is basic and somewhat Asimov-like in that the author prefers to rely upon broad concepts and does not get too crunchy-- though he does enjoy descriptive geology. The characters develop well enough considering the time spanned in the novel and the scope the story. Yes, it read a bit dated at times, but not nearly as much as I had anticipated when I saw that it was published in 1955. The ending was also a bit hasty and tidy, but still satisfying considering fast-pace of the novel. Other reviewers have described the story as "epic" and I tend to agree. A fun, quick and surprising little book from the past.
