The Complete Hammer's Slammers (Complete Hammer's Slammers, nr. 01)

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – October 2009
The Best-Selling Series That Rocketed David Drake to Military Science Fiction Stardom.
The First of Three Volumes Collecting the Complete Series.
With a veteran's eye for the harsh and gritty details of war, David Drake depicts a futuristic analog of tank combat in his Hammer's Slammers fiction. The Slammers are neither cartoon heroes nor propaganda villains; rather they are competent professionals engaged in a deadly business. The inevitable conflicts between policy, necessity, and human nature make Drake's Slammers fiction instantly identifiable and utterly compelling. This is the first of a three volume set presenting for the first time the entire genre-defining Slammers series in a uniform trade paperback set, with new introductions by major SF figures and new afterwords by David Drake. Each volume will also include a Slammers story not collected in previous Slammer's books.

"Fans of Drake's edgy stories of a mercenary tank regiment in a future not all that different from our present will rejoice at the publication of] the entire series in three volumes. Drake, a Vietnam vet who served in the Blackhorse Regiment, uses prose as cold and hard as the metal alloy of a tank to portray the men and women of Hammer's Regiment. . . . In his depiction of combat, Drake rivals Crane and Remarque."
--"Publishers Weekly," reviewing the Night Shade hardcover edition
